Abstract

Serum prealbumin concentration (PALB) and albumin concentration (ALB) were evaluated as markers of undernutrition in 107 children with cerebral palsy (CP) age 2 to 18 years. PALB and ALB were rarely below the normal reference ranges and showed little to no correlation with anthropometric measures (eg, skinfolds, midarm fat area), growth (height), severity of CP (eg, feeding dysfunction, motor impairment), or general health.
