Abstract Patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) often present changes in nutritional status. Based on weight loss and on difficulty in nutritional management, this study aims to review the different possibilities and to present guidelines concerning nutritional treatment to such patients. Diet characteristics, types of treatment and nutritional therapy indicating administration routes and discussing the details of the disease are described herein. Nutritional therapy has been a substantial therapeutic resource for ALS development.

Pacientes com esclerose lateral amiotrófica (ELA) frequentemente apresentam alteração do estado nutricional. Baseado na perda ponderal de peso e na dificuldade no manejo nutricional, o objetivo desse estudo é rever as estratégias de tratamento nutricional para a manutenção do estado nutricional desses doentes. Nesse trabalho, descrevem-se as características da dieta, as formas de tratamento e terapia nutricional com indicação das vias de administração, bem como discuti-se as particularidades da doença. A terapia nutricional tem se mostrado um recurso terapêutico primordial atuante na evolução da ELA.
