Introduction: The nutritional requirements depend on the spending needed to keep the growth rhythm, changes in body composition and in the energy consumption, hence the need for an adequate nutrition for adolescents to develop their biological potential to the maximum. Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of Nutrisol as a nutritional supplement in the treatment of adolescents with nutritional deficiency. Material and Methods: A prospective, longitudinal and analytic study at the University Pediatric Hospital William Soler was performed. 40 adolescents, 20 of each sex, with diagnosis of nutritional deficiency and percentile values ​​equal to 10 or less were included. The teen agers were treated for a period of six months. Group I received the usual treatment (vitamin C, Polivit and dietary assessment) and group II was treated with Nutrisol and dietary assessment. Anthropometric measurements, laboratory data and clinical parameters were evaluated. The evolution of the response variables was performed using the non-parametric Friedman test. Results: Adolescents who consumed Nutrisol showed greater variability in the studied anthropometric variables than those receiving the usual treatment (p=0.001). The exploring of haematological variables showed a slight increase of normal values ​​for both sexes after consumption of Nutrisol. Teenage boys had better response to treatment than females. There was no change in the parameters for safety variables assessed during the study. Nausea and loss of appetite were the adverse events reported during the investigation. No serious adverse events were reported. Conclusions: The use of Nutrisol is effective and safe in treating adolescents with nutritional deficiencies.
