Nutritional Disorders

Nutritional diseases are the nutrient-related diseases and conditions that cause illness in humans. They may include deficiencies or excesses in the diet, obesity and eating disorders, and chronic diseases such as  cancer, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and diabetes mellitus. Nutritional diseases also include developmental abnormalities that can be prevented by diet, hereditary metabolic disorders that respond to the interaction of foods, dietary treatment and nutrients with drugs, intolerances and food allergies , and potential hazards in the food supply. Malnutrition is the impaired function that results from a prolonged deficiency—or excess—of total energy or specific nutrients such as protein, vitamins, essential fatty acids, or minerals. This condition can result from fasting and anorexia nervosa; impaired digestion and intestinal malabsorption; persistent vomiting (as in bulimia nervosa) or inability to swallow; or chronic illnesses that result in loss of appetite (e.g., cancer, AIDS). Malnutrition can also result from unwise food choices, limited food availability, or overzealous use of dietary supplements.
