Nutritional Epidemiology and Clinical Nutrition
Clinical Nutrition encompasses preventing, diagnosing, and managing nutritional and metabolic changes related to acute, chronic diseases, and imbalances in energy and nutrients. Growing prevalence of these conditions drives advances in this field. Clinical nutrition examines the disease-nutrition link and employs nutritional therapy. Its aim is maintaining energy balance, providing vital nutrients like vitamins, protein, minerals. The focus extends to in- and out-patient care, addressing disorders affecting intake, absorption, metabolism, and promoting health through diet-related disease prevention.
