Nutritional Deficiencies and Disorders


A person's nutrient intake is consistently lower than the recommended need, resulting in nutritional deficiencies. On its own, nutritional deficiency is a risk factor for death. Despite the clinical importance of this condition, its prevalence in primary care is underreported. Nutritional deficiency has a wide range of consequences, including delayed wound healing and muscular degeneration, as well as decreased immune function. Malnourished patients have more consultations and prescriptions, longer hospital stays, a lower quality of life, and, most importantly, a higher risk of death.
A lack of nutrients caused by a poor diet, poor digestion, and/or malabsorption. Nutritional problems are a significant and underappreciated complication of many chronic diseases. Nutritional disorders can occur as a result of a combination of decreased food intake and metabolic imbalances, which have been linked to delayed recovery as well as increased morbidity and mortality. Nutritional disorders include a wide range of issues, such as general malnutrition, obesity-related overnutrition, eating disorders, and diseases in which nutrition plays a role in pathogenesis. Undernutrition and obesity are both major public health concerns around the world.
