Results: High nutritional risk was detected in 194 patients (75.2%), with the screening tool. A total of 117 patients (45.3%) of the population were hospitalized with clinical diagnoses that impacted the nutritional status, and it was important to note that 158 (61.2%) pregnant women started the pregnancy with a normal BMI, and 121 (46.9%) had hospital admission.
