Questions related to Dietetics
Dietitians all over the world strive to help fight obesity and other food related diseases. I am sure that most hospitals turn a sharp eye on healthy food according to contemporary knowledge. There are databases covering this topic, e.g. USDA. On the other hand, different patients have different needs relating their diets.
Which software and applications can you recommend for use in a hospital food planning system that takes into account nutritional data for creating healthy diets?
I have a policy statement from the British Dietetic Association, and both a policy statement and practice guidance from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (USA). I can't find any other countries. Anyone know of others? with link to document if possible. Thanks.
From novel dietary indexes and biomarkers to more contemporary nutritional issues including sustainability, health literacy, and food security, nutrition research is constantly evolving. Grounded on the pillars of nutrition epidemiology, nutritional science is updated while moving towards a more evidence-based approach.
To address this we had started a special issue in Nutrients journal entitled ""Contemporary Issues in Nutrition Research". This special issue aims to embrace updated multidisciplinary research on all challenges and important aspects of nutrition today, including principles of hydration, new supplementation delivery methods, evidence on personalized nutrition and health, as well as epidemiological and methodological issues related to the science of nutrition and dietetics. The authors of original articles, opinion papers, as well as narrative and systematic reviews are welcome to submit and showcase their research.

Thank you for your interest,

In a study among People living with HIV, a food diary was used in documenting dietary intake of the participants. No information was collected on the quantity of food consumed, the price of food was collected but the data were collected in different communities of a large city. Also, the price of food has increased substantially in the last six months and current pricing may not provide a good estimate of quantity of food consumed during the data collection period.
A qualitative approach is being considered, we have not seen any study where food diary was used to deduce the dietary diversity. We want to know the possibility and likely modality for such attempt.
Seeking articles on pharmacists in mental health. Other beneficial services include physical and occupational therapy, ministry, dietitian, dentist, physician, and counselor.
Scientific data or legal data concerning the safe level of rutin for children.
If any, which combination of nutrients can provoke rapid weight gain? Which kind of nutrient supplementation can be combined to achieve this?
Unhealthy diets that contain bacterial lipopolysaccharides (LPS) promote amyloid beta aggregation and healthy diets in the developing world are encouraged to reduce the toxic amyloid beta speices by release of a number of proteins to prevent amyloid beta aggregation.
I'm trying to look for articles looking for possible relationships between diet and reduction of psychological stress among survivors of natural disasters. Most of the articles I had searched used micronutrient supplementation but I'm more concerned with food-based interventions or dietary managements.
My older daughter (aged 5) had an ependymoma removed (recidivism) last December. Neurosurgery went perfectly well and then a whole heavy radiotherapy treatment was done (cranio-spinal). Are there any evidence for advices regarding preventive food restrictions/preconisations/avoidance ?
I am interested in whether a relationship can be identified between an individuals perception of the quality of their diet and their BMI and WLOC.
In daily practice sometimes we can not weigh patients directly because the patient's condition is not allowed. Is there a way or a formula that can be used to estimate patient's body weight based on, for example, the circumference of the upper arm or wrist circumference?
I have given a good web-link that details what are the best and worst food for type-2 diabetes patients.
These food are listed under the following categories:
Your views on these or other categories are welcome!
Best wishes, Sundar
We are being told that we should eat dairy products regularly. But the China study Shows the opposite. The more animal products we eat the more chronic deseases we develop, no matter of our genetic Disposition.
Do you have/know any new papers on this subject, wich are not sponsored directly or indirectly by members of this industry sector?
Is there a pure line demarcation between vegetarian and non-vegetarian ?
If somebody talks of purely vegetarian, is he not eating yeast, bacteria, molds?
Need only scientific input.
Recently, JP Richie Jr. published an article where oral glutathione ingestion was shown to be successful in raising body stores of glutathione (PMID 24791752) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=24791752
It has been my understanding that oral glutathione has been demonstrated to be relatively inneffective in human subjects. This paper claims a 30-35% increase in glutathione levels were found in healthy adults. This flies in the face of decades of previous research. Comments would be appreciated.
I'm trying to refine public health thesis ideas concerning nutrition education and dietary choices. I'm not sure where to focus. Maybe on the FDA changing the label? I'm also thinking about comparing groups of diabetic patients that receive nutritional counseling upon diagnosis without external referrals. I need help with ideas, but I'm looking for valid surveys in hopes that they might help guide me, so I can see what I may actually be able to measure.
Where I work we have allied health discipline advisors for physiotherapy, occupational therapy, dietetics, speech pathology and social work- these are strategic leadership and support roles. These roles are all newly established, and we are planning to take advantage of this by researching the impact of the advisor roles at 1 and 2 years post commencement.
I have looked at the literature and am unable to identify any research on advisor roles in any of the allied health disciplines. Is anyone aware of literature in this area?
Any suggestions would be a great help.
Specially when not only the country of origin has a very different culture and diet pattern, but also, different groups of immigrants from various countries coexist.
How can these matters be overcome?
I just pretended to evaluate the amount of food ingested by a group of athletes after the exercise until the next meal. i don't think a food frequency questionnaire should be appropriate so I would like to know what you guys think.
Proton-pump inhibitors like omeprazole appear to reduce calcium absorption from calcium carbonate more than from calcium citrate, but how do they affect the absorption from dietary intake from foods like milk, cheese, spinach, etc?
In November, I will defend my doctoral thesis entitled "nutritional analysis and its relation with psycho-physical stress and muscle damage in professional players of volleyball throughout a season". Besides I finished in 2011 the master degree in nutrition and health at Basque County University (Spain) and I'm also finished a Master in Kinanthropometry and Sports Nutrition at the University of Valencia (Spain).
I would like to know a research group in nutrition and/or sport physiology for a post-doctorate in this area.
Type-1 diabetics, mainly those with severe diabetic complications, suffer from chronic malnutrition. The ideal is to improve their nutritional status prior to major elective surgery.
However, it is important to know their baseline nutritional profile to target their specific needs before and after surgery. We started with nutritional assessment prior to pancreas transplantation in combination with Early Enteral Nutrition. But we found it difficult to assess this specific group of the patients.
I would like to know opinions of medical doctors, nutritionists, gastroenterologists and physiologists about models (rodents or in vitro experiments) to tryout the effects of dietary bioactive compounds isolated from foods on different markers of human diseases or health. My question is not the way drugs are tested but dietary compounds which later will be eaten as part of a complex diet. For instance, bioactive peptides from cow milk on arterial pressure.
I need the questions, not only the article of validation
I'm specially interested in questions about nutrients related to immune system and muscle healing after an injury
I am interested in knowing if anyone has worked on iron rich probiotic. I came across one article sometime ago. I am looking for a probiotic which can be administered for treatment of anemia in an easy and comfortable way rather than through medicines.
