Spanish term or phrase: ABEG
En la sección del EXAMEN GENERAL de una HISTORIA CLÍNICA, de Perú:

"Paciente despierto, activo, ABEG, MEN, hidratado, DDA."

Creo que "MEN" significa "MAL ESTADO NUTRICIONAL", pero del significado de "ABEG" no he podido encontrar nada.

¿Acaso alguien ha visto este acrónimo médico antes?

Notes to answerer
Asker: ¡Gracias, Celia! Acabo de encontrar varios ejemplos de "BUEN ESTADO GENERAL", y me parece muy bien tu sugerencia aquí. ¿Qué sugieres para MEN, si no es "¿mal estado nutricional?". También estoy dudando mi interpretación de DDA ya que "dar de alta" no cabe muy bien en el contexto, ya que el informe indica que una operación será necesaria...
