Fluid in Refeeding

Refeeding results in expansion of the extracellular space and fluid must be given carefully during the first few days to weeks of refeeding

Weight gain greater than 1 kg the first week is due to fluid retention

Fluid may need to be restricted to 800 to 1000cc/day

Increases in blood pressure, heart rate and respiratory rate may be early signs of fluid excess
