Clinical Evaluation of a Normoproteic Diet (STDUGR)
The main objective of this trial is the clinical evaluation of a normoproteic diet, when this diet is used for total enteral nutrition in geriatric people.
For 3 months,all the participants in the study will receive only tube feeding: The experimental group will receive the commercial preparation to evaluate (T-Diet Plus ®, Vegenat SA) and the control group will receive a standard diet (Jevity ®, Abbott Laboratories).

|Official Title:||Clinical Evaluation of a Normoproteic Diet With Ultra High Temperature Treatment|
- Nutritional status evaluation [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Clinical evaluation of a comercial product: T-Diet Plus (normoproteic and specific diet), when is used for total enteral nutrition in geriatric people.
- Specific parameters measure [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
- Confirm gastrointestinal and metabolic tolerance of the product.
- Consider the influence of the diet received on quality of life related to health.
- Study the changes in the nutritional status of elderly patients
- Assess changes in the lipid profile of patients
- Compare the evolution in blood levels of metabolic syndrome indicator parameters and other related to cardiovascular morbidity.
- Assess changes in the antioxidant defense system.

The project includes:
- Product tolerance study: gastrointestinal and metabolic complications related to the product administration.
- The monitoring of the intervention, and clinical and nutritional evaluation of the participants, including anthropometry, quality of life related to the health and clinical and nutritional status analytical evaluation (hematology and biochemistry).
- The determination of the major biochemical variables related to the lipid profile and assessment of the antioxidant defense system, and also certain markers of metabolic syndrome and associated cardiovascular risk.
