The patients on parenteral nutrition had higher ratio of malnutrition and the significance of malnutrition with child plug score was 61.8% patients had class C and 35,3% class B while in enteral support 7.3% were having class C and 43.9% patients with class B with (p-value= 0.000). There was a strong relationship observed in the route of intake and malnutrition among cirrhotic patients. Enteral nutritional support is a safe and effective way to provide increased nutrition when a patient is unable to meet their basic needs by mouth.
