REE and REE/kg FFM significantly decrease after lung transplantation in CF patients. Prediction equations for energy requirement are inaccurate until a year after LTx. Measuring REE by indirect calorimetry is advised in CF patients before and until one year after LTx. Pre-LTx, energy requirements are at least 20% higher than predicted with common energy requirement equations.
