I am having difficulty with my care plan. My patient had a stroke a while back and is doing pretty well now. She lost 40 lb and is 162 lb and 5'3. She has a very good appetite and just recently went from using a wheelchair to getting around, to walking with a walker. She has dysphagia so she is on a mechanical diet. Her hemoglobin is abnormal at 9.6 L, but im not too sure if she is taking any supplements. She also has a feeding tube in her stomach but hasnt used it in a while since she is finally eating by herself.
Our clinical groups diagnosis for the week is nutrition so for my nursing diagnosis I have that she has Altered Nutrition: Less than body requirements. But im not sure what to write for the Related To part. My professor told me that im not going to say she has more than requirements because she doesnt want me to put my patient on a diet although the pt is overweight. So she told me to put less than requirements and to look at all the aspects of the pt's diet. The thing is, the patient eats everything, about 100% of her meals so I dont really see a deficiency in anything.
Can anyone please help me? Im a little lost.
