ABSTRACT

BMI plays a main role in the patient’s health condition. Decrease or low level in BMI may leads to serious health issues. Recovery from illness or a bone fracture generally requires a period of bed rest, often lead to consequence of hospitalization for longer duration. A long duration of period (>10 days) of bed rest may induce substantial changes in body composition and may lead to overall metabolic decline.[1,2] This prolonged physical inactivity has taught us about muscle disuse atrophy, it may be of limited clinical relevance to most patients who are on average hospitalized for <7days.[3] Recent data shows that few days of disuse substantially reduces skeletal muscle mass and strength. This may ultimately lead to change in the BMI. BACKGROUND The change in body mass index (BMI) on Hospitalized patients with Bone fracture.
