Q: What would be the likely change in nutrition formula if patient goes to only nocturnal feeding?

A) Calorie-dense formula
B) Formula with high water content
C) Using renal formula
D) Double the dose of standard formula

Answer:     A 

Calorically dense formulas are most practical for use in patients requiring nocturnal and/or bolus feeding. Most calorie dense formulae are concentrated in water content, and carried 2 cal/ml. Also, there is no need to switch to renal formula as they are specifically designed in contents only for renally impaired patients.
