Nutritional deficiency occurs when either the body can’t absorb the necessary amount of a nutrient, or there isn’t enough of the nutrients found in the foods we eat. Nutritional deficiencies have shown to worsen many illnesses, and can contribute to cancer through DNA damage, neuronal decay in the central nervous system, and premature aging. Lack of adequate nutrition in one’s body is certainly a condition that has proven to be rather silent and has still gone overlooked. Even though nutritional deficiencies are thought to be limited to third world countries where malnutrition is most widespread, doctors and pharmacists alike only screen around 31.3% of patients upon admission to a hospital. Here in the US, as the prevalence of malnutrition has climbed to 25-54% among hospitalized patients at admission, it can be concluded that something can and should be done about this.
The recommended daily amount of a nutrient is determined by how much the body needs to stay healthy. Nutrients can be obtained in a variety of ways - from eating a varied diet, to taking vitamin supplements, or having IV/IM Nutritional therapy.
