OBJECTIVES: The assessment of nutritional intake before and after bariatric surgery assists in identifying eating disorders, nutritional deficiencies and weight loss/maintenance. The 7-day record is the gold standard for such an assessment and is interpreted using specialized software. This study sought to compare the Virtual Nutri Plus (R) and Dietpro 5i (R) software systems in assessing nutrient intake in obese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who underwent a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. METHODS: Nutritional intake was assessed in 10 obese women with type 2 diabetes mellitus before and 3 months after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. The 7-day record was used to assess food intake and then, the Virtual Nutri Plus (R) and Dietpro 5i (R) software systems were used to calculate calorie, macronutrient and micronutrient intake based on validated food chemical composition databases. NCT01251016. RESULTS: During the preoperative period, deficits in the ingestion of total fiber and 15 out of 22 estimated micronutrients were observed when using the Virtual Nutri Plus (R), compared to deficiencies in total fiber and 4 micronutrients when using the Dietpro 5i (R). During the postoperative period, both the Virtual Nutri Plus (R) and Dietpro 5i (R) systems detected deficits in the ingestion of total fiber, carbohydrates and 19 micronutrients, but only the Virtual Nutri Plus (R) detected deficits in complex B vitamins (except B12) and minerals. CONCLUSION: Virtual Nutri Plus (R) was more sensitive than Dietpro 5i (R) for the identification of deficits in nutrient intake in obese, type 2 diabetes mellitus patients undergoing Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
