This text is designed to help students and practitioners assimilate and implement medical nutrition therapy for numerous disorders. It helps establish protocols and priorities in nutritional care, demonstrates transitional therapies, and categorizes disorders where nutritional input can reduce costs by reducing morbidity, mortality and length of stay. "Nutritional acuity rankings" are included at the beginning of each condition, which help identify patients at moderate to high risk, prioritize timing for nutritional consultations and plan adequate follow-up services. The chapters mostly follow a "head-to-toe" approach in the sections specific to body organs.
