  • Protein-energy malnutrition (PEM), also known as protein-calorie malnutrition Iron deficiency: nutritional anaemia which can lead to lessened productivity, sometimes becoming terminal Vitamin A deficiency, which can lead to blindness or a weakened immune system Iodine deficiency, which can lead to serious mental or physical complaints Foliate deficiency can lead to insufficient birth weight or congenital anomalies such as spina bifida.

  • mortality
  • 1 It was reported that "malnutrition is a major contributor to increased morbidity and mortality, decreased function and quality of life, increased frequency and length of hospital stay, and higher health care cost. (labcorp.com)
  • Obesity is a condition in which the natural energy reserve, stored in the fatty tissue of humans and other mammals, is increased to a point where it is associated with certain health conditions or increased mortality. (wikipedia.org)
  • Specifically, his work involves identifying reliable and practical tests for protein-caloric malnutrition, which is associated with heightened risks of mortality in renal failure patients, and using these tests to assess different treatment strategies. (wikipedia.org)

  • Biological conditions that increase the need for energy include all infectious diseases accompanied by fever, and other diseases that increase catabolism, such as tuberculosis, or that are accompanied by an increased nutrient loss, such as intestinal parasitism. (encyclopedia.com)
  • pregnancy
  • The major contributors to postneonatal death are malnutrition, infectious disease, troubled pregnancy, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and problems with the home environment. (wikipedia.org)
  • Ménétrier's disease) Burns (plasma loss in the absence of skin barrier) Redistribution (hemodilution [as in pregnancy], increased vascular permeability or decreased lymphatic clearance) Acute disease states (referred to as a negative acute-phase protein) Malnutrition and wasting Mutation causing analbuminemia (very rare) Hyperalbuminemia is an increased concentration of albumin in the blood. (wikipedia.org)
  • albumin
  • Serum albumin is reported to be a marker of long-term (more than two weeks) malnutrition due to its long biological half-life. (labcorp.com)
  • If the serum albumin result is below its age-/gender-specific lower limit, the cascade will reflex to Step 3 - testing for C-Reactive Protein ( CRP ). (labcorp.com)
  • Albumin is synthesized in the liver as preproalbumin, which has an N-terminal peptide that is removed before the nascent protein is released from the rough endoplasmic reticulum. (wikipedia.org)
  • The gene for albumin is located on chromosome 4 and mutations in this gene can result in anomalous proteins. (wikipedia.org)
  • serum albumin levels can affect the half-life of drugs Competitively binds calcium ions (Ca2+) Serum albumin, as a negative acute-phase protein, is down-regulated in inflammatory states. (wikipedia.org)
  • It has been known for a long time that human blood proteins like hemoglobin and serum albumin may undergo a slow non-enzymatic glycation, mainly by formation of a Schiff base between ε-amino groups of lysine (and sometimes arginine) residues and glucose molecules in blood (Maillard reaction). (wikipedia.org)
  • Glycation has the potential to alter the biological structure and function of the serum albumin protein. (wikipedia.org)
  • kcal
  • The therapy used in this phase is F-75, a milk-based liquid food containing modest amounts of energy and protein (75 kcal/100 mL and 0.9 g protein/100 mL) and the administration of parenteral antibiotics. (wikipedia.org)
  • minerals
  • Therapeutic foods are usually made of a mixture of protein, carbohydrate, lipid and vitamins and minerals. (wikipedia.org)
  • The other ingredients are protein, carbohydrate, vitamins and minerals. (wikipedia.org)
  • The powdered protein, carbohydrate, and vitamins and minerals are then slowly and gradually added to the lipid, while the lipid is being vigorously stirred. (wikipedia.org)
  • calories
  • Obesity is caused by eating too many calories compared to the amount of exercise the individual is performing, causing a distorted energy balance. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some of the structural material can be used to generate energy internally, and in either case it is measured in Joules or kilocalories (often called "Calories" and written with a capital 'C' to distinguish them from little 'c' calories). (wikipedia.org)
  • obesity
  • Suggestive of long-term energy and/or protein deprivation (more than two weeks) due to chronic disease-related malnutrition (like organ failure, pancreatic cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcopenic obesity). (labcorp.com)
  • In rich countries, therefore, obesity is often a sign of poverty and malnutrition while in poorer countries obesity is more associated with wealth and good nutrition. (wikipedia.org)
  • nephrotic syndrome
  • Although a low plasma oncotic pressure is widely cited for the edema of nephrotic syndrome, most physicians note that the edema may occur before there is any significant protein in the urine ( proteinuria ) or fall in plasma protein level. (wikipedia.org)
  • cirrhosis of the liver is most common Excess excretion by the kidneys (as in nephrotic syndrome) Excess loss in bowel (protein-losing enteropathy, e.g. (wikipedia.org)
  • amino acids
  • The fundamental components of protein are nitrogen-containing amino acids, some of which are essential in the sense that humans cannot make them internally. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some of the amino acids are convertible (with the expenditure of energy) to glucose and can be used for energy production just as ordinary glucose. (wikipedia.org)
  • metabolism
  • One study established that dialysis changes protein metabolism in such a way as to stimulate protein degradation in muscle and other tissues. (wikipedia.org)
  • and that parenteral nutrition during dialysis, as well as exercise during dialysis, can mitigate the defects in protein metabolism. (wikipedia.org)
  • evidence
  • A non-inflammatory form of immune competence prevails in acute pre-pubescent malnutrition: new evidence based on critical mRNA transcripts in the mouse. (nih.gov)
  • include
  • Extreme undernourishment, known as starvation, may have symptoms that include: a short height, thin body, very poor energy levels, and swollen legs and abdomen. (wikipedia.org)
  • urine
  • Thus the resulting increase in permeability that leads to protein in the urine can explain the edema if all other vessels are more permeable as well. (wikipedia.org)
