Track: Dietetics and Malnutrition

Dietetics and Malnutrition


"The science of nutrition applied to the human being in health and disease," according to the definition of dietetics. The dietitian profession has evolved significantly over the last 50 years, and the dietitian is now recognised as an expert in the planning and evaluation of nutritional treatment. Dietitians are the only health professionals who are trained to assess, diagnose, and treat diet and nutrition problems. They play an important role in improving the health of others, both individually and societally. Dietitians use the most recent research on diet, health, and disease to provide practical advice that helps people improve their health. Important dietary deficiencies, such as iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn), are a major public health concern that affects over 2 billion people worldwide, resulting in malnutrition syndromes. Medical and dietetic professionals must broaden their understanding of safety and therapeutic efficacy, as well as stay informed, in this rapidly expanding field of practise.

Malnutrition is a condition that occurs when the body does not have enough vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to keep its tissues and organs healthy. Malnutrition affects people who are either undernourished or overnourished. A number of tests have been developed to address this issue on a more subjective level in order to determine the physiologic and functional consequences of malnutrition and to assess the effects of nutritional supplementation. In health care, registered dietitian nutritionists are working hard to improve the speed and accuracy of malnutrition diagnosis and nutrition interventions. Malnutrition is a medical condition marked by an unbalanced diet. It could be a sign of malnutrition or overnutrition. Undernutrition occurs when vital nutrients are not consumed in sufficient quantities or when they are eliminated faster than they can be supplied.
