Summary

  • Malnutrition in humans can be assessed through dietary intake studies, biochemical studies, and clinical symptoms.
  • Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) provide quantitative estimates of nutrient intakes required to prevent deficiencies and maintain optimal health.
  • DRIs include Estimated Average Requirement (EAR), Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA), Adequate Intake (AI), and Tolerable Upper Intake Level (UL).
  • RDA is calculated as EAR plus two standard deviations (SD).
  • Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Ranges (AMDR) recommend the adequate intake of macronutrients for reduced risk of chronic diseases.
  • Food pyramid is a public educational tool to recommend daily servings of various foods.
  • Energy requirement in humans is maintained by calorie intake and energy expenditure.
  • Vegetarians have lower intake of iron, calcium, and vitamin D, but consume enough protein and less total dietary fat.
  • Total parenteral nutrition (TPN) is a type of exogenous nutrition provided intravenously or through tube feeding for terminally-ill patients.
  • Standard composition of TPN feed includes energy content, nitrogen, fat, glucose, and electrolytes, trace elements, and vitamins.
  • Continuous biochemical, hematological, and immunological monitoring is required for patients on TPN.
  • Malnutrition is measured through dietary intake studies, biochemical studies, and clinical symptoms.
  • DRIs include EAR, RDA, AI, and UL to prevent deficiencies and maintain optimal health.
  • RDA is calculated as EAR plus two standard deviations.
  • AMDR recommends the adequate intake of macronutrients for chronic disease prevention.
  • Food pyramid recommends daily servings of various foods for a healthy diet.
  • Energy requirement in humans is maintained by calorie intake and energy expenditure.
  • Vegetarians have lower intake of iron, calcium, and vitamin D but consume enough protein and less total dietary fat.
  • TPN is a type of exogenous nutrition for terminally-ill patients, and standard composition of TPN feed includes energy content, nitrogen, fat, glucose, and essential nutrients.
  • Continuous monitoring is required for patients on TPN due to individual nutritional requirements and potential complications.
