There are several reasons why nutrition is an important subject for laboratory scientists. Laboratory investigations are essential to the successful diagnosis and management of many nutritional disorders: nutritional disorders can give rise to significant metabolic dysfunction and clinical biochemists are frequently members of multidisciplinary teams advising on the provision of nutritional support. This book includes aspects of the function of nutrients, the digestion and absorption of food, the assessment of nutritional status, and the investigation and management of nutritional disorders, including both undernutrition and obesity.
