A low intake of vitamins and minerals causes about 2 billion people all over the world to suffer from micronutrient malnutrition (IFPRI, 2014). Nutritional deficiencies result in impaired physical and mental development of humans, loss of productivity, susceptibility to various diseases among others (Lim et al, 2012). They are caused not only by low quantities of food consumed but also by poor dietary diversity; as dietary diversity is a good indicator of broader nutritional status. More diverse diets are associated with lower rates of nutritional problems in many parts of the world (Popkin and Slining, 2013). As a result, to improve nutrition and health, it is important to increase dietary diversity.
Mini Nutritional Assessment Findings According to the Mini Nutrition Assessment paper, patient M.L has a BMI of 18 which is less than 19. He has lost appetite since being diagnosed and eats twice daily. This patient does not consume a lot of fluid intakes nor does he include meat, fish, or poultry each day. He has severe depression, and both his total screening score and malnutrition indicator score listed him as malnourished. M.L can self-feed himself and is uncertain about his health status, (Shantelle, W., 2017).
Nutrition is how food affects the health of the body. The body has to function and remain healthy by taking in macronutrients and micronutrients. Failure to do so leads to ill-health and disease. Everyone, throughout life requires the same nutrients but in differing quantities. The factors that determine how much we need are: age, gender, size, exercise and whether one is in good health or, perhaps, has a medical condition.
By shadowing a cardiologist, Dr. Chaim Gitelis, I learned about the anatomy and pathophysiology of the cardiac system. While shadowing, Dr. Gitelis taught me the fundamentals of reading an EKG and echocardiogram as well as the basic management of cardiac disease. I interacted with the patients on the inpatient wards and well as the clinic. Dr. Gitelis impressed upon me the importance of giving each patient the time they need. He clarified the patient’s problem, discussed his thoughts with respect to the patient’s disease, and explained how he planned to treat each patient.
