Abstract

Background: The influence of early enteral nutrition (EEN) on nutrient intake and blood glucose levels in patients with stomach cancer accompanied by diabetes mellitus. Objective: The objective of this research was to find out the impact of early enteral nutrition on postoperative nutritional status and blood immunological index values in patients having radical gastric cancer surgery. Methods: In this experiment, a sum of 130 patients who underwent radical resection of gastric cancer in our institution during October 2019 to October 2020. According to the random number table method, they were divided into control group and study group. To investigate the effect of early enteral nutrition on postoperative nourishing state and blood immune index levels in patients undergoing radical gastric cancer surgery, the study group received enteral nutrition emulsion TPF after surgery, while the control group received total parenteral nutrition support 24 hours after surgery. Results: The time for patients in the treated group to return to normal anus and defecation, total naso-intestinal tube drainage, and naso-intestinal tube placement were significantly reduced when compared to the control group; on the first day after surgery, Hb, Alb, PA, and surgery in the 2 groups were considerably distinct. It reduced dramatically as compared to the previous group, and there was no notable change in between observation and control groups. On the 8th day of surgery, the Hb, Alb, and PA indicators in the treated group were significantly increased than control group; on the 1st day after surgery, IgA, IgM, IgG, CD3+, CD4+, CD4+/CD8+ were considerably lower in the tested groups than before surgery; on the 8th day after the surgery all exceeded the level of the control group. Conclusion: EEN can successfully increase intestinal function restoration in patients having radical gastric cancer surgery, improve clinical efficacy and immunological function, improve patients' nutritional condition after surgery, and prevent the incidence of problems.
