Brief Summary:
evaluation of the efficacy of two different age adjusted calculations of CHI compared to other nutritional indicators in the elderly medical patients upon hospital admission.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Malnutrition in Elderly Diagnostic Test: 24 hour urine creatinine excretion

Detailed Description:
Cross sectional study involving one hundred hospitalized elderly (>60 years), Anthropometric measurements, Mini- nutritional assessment, Hand Grip strength, CBC, total protein, albumin, total cholesterol, triglyceride, and 24 hour urinary creatinine excretion were measured within 24 hours of hospital admission calculation of CHI using 2 age adjusted modification was done accuracy of each measurement in detecting malnutrition was evaluated
