The article presents an answer to a clinical question related to the improvements of outcomes after stroke due to protein-energy supplementation of normal hospital diet. The groups of patients under this study did not differ for rates of the composite endpoint or all-cause mortality. It was found that routine oral protein energy supplementation of normal hospital diet did not improve outcomes in patients who had been admitted with a recent stroke. In patients with stroke who are able to take oral nutrition, additional nutritional supplements beyond a normal hospital diet are probably not necessary.
