Book Description

Biochemical parameters represent better, precise, and objective tools toward the assessment of the nutritional status of children in comparison to anthropometric, clinical, and dietary methods. They constitute laboratory tests to estimate the concentration of circulating nutrients in body fluids. Biochemical parameters are suggestive of acute or subclinical conditions when other methods of nutritional assessment fail to interpret the condition. These parameters exhibit substantial variability in their reproducibility. Moreover, these parameters are novel tools in the hands of clinicians for screening of the nutritional status of children.

Key Features

  • Covers the latest biochemical parameters for nutritional assessment
  • Updated content is useful for clinicians, nutritionists, and general practitioners
  • A unique and concise treatise covering descriptive and research-based work on a crucial health issue of worldwide prevalence
