Short description:

This is the first comprehensive overview of adult malnutrition. Written by leading malnutrition experts, chapters cover the diagnosis, treatment, clinical and financial implications of malnutrition.

Long description:

Malnutrition is a global health problem and results in significant clinical and financial consequences for people, communities, and healthcare institutions. Causes of malnutrition are often complex and multifactorial, and can include acute illness or injury, chronic disease, and a variety of socioeconomic factors.

While many professional articles have been published on malnutrition, there is no single source of information that encompasses all aspects of the condition. Adult Malnutrition: Diagnosis and Treatment reviews the risk factors and etiologies of malnutrition, as well as screening, assessment, diagnosis, and treatment to aid healthcare professionals in the identification and successful care of individuals with this condition in a variety of settings.


  • Discusses how to identify malnutrition risks through the use of validated nutrition screening tools in diverse settings

  • Provides detailed instructions on conducting a nutrition-focused physical exam, including illustrations depicting differing degrees of muscle wasting and fat loss

  • Presents information on risk factors, diagnosis, and treatment of vitamin and mineral deficiencies, including photos illustrating signs of deficiency to aid in diagnosis

  • Details treatments for malnutrition related to acute illness/injury, chronic illness, social/environmental circumstances, or starvation

  • Reviews challenges and potential solutions to malnutrition identification and treatment in healthcare institutions

Edited by Jennifer Doley, MBA, RDN, CNSC, FAND, and Mary Marian, DCN, RDN, CSO, FAND, FASPEN, this book serves as a key text for registered dietitian nutritionists, health practitioners, and clinicians.
