Nutritional status is defined as the state of your current health as related to your diet. For instance, if you are a staving person, you would not be getting the calories and nutrients that you need for optimum health. You would be referred to as malnourished; basically meaning your nutritional status is bad.
Malnutrition can occur from a diet which doesn’t provide enough food. This situation happens during times of famine or times of voluntary starvation. This can also occur if a person has an eating disorder or because something disturbs a person’s appetite like a life changing event. For instance, older folks could be in risk of malnutrition because of tooth decay or loss of appetite due to living alone and sometimes just plain forgetting to eat.
Malnutrition can also occur from a diet which is lacking in a specific nutrient. This type of nutritional inadequacy can lead to a deficiency disease. One example of this disease is beriberi. This is a deficiency disease where a person lacks Vitamin B1 (thiamine).
Finally, malnutrition can occur from a disorder or a medical condition which prevents the body from absorbing nutrients, like protein or carbohydrates. A very common example of this is diabetes. Diabetes is the body’s inability to produce enough insulin. Insulin is the hormone which your body needs to digest carbohydrates. Another deficiency disease is celiac. Celiac disease is a condition where your body will not digest gluten, which is a protein in wheat.
Nurses and doctors have many tools available to rate your nutrition status if you are curious. For instance, they can examine your family’s medical history and see if there are any conditions that may interfere with your ability to metabolize (digest) nutrients. They can also perform a physical examination on you to look for signs of malnutrition. Laboratory testing is also available on your blood and urine and may identify early signs of malnutrition as well. It doesn’t matter what stage of life you are in, your aim should be to maintain a healthy and good diet.

Text Appearing Before Image: s the first step in bringing about a reform. Without it carein handling milk is but an idle form. The facts show that deaths from digestive diseases were preva-lent during the summer months, only among bottle-fed babies.Out of 237 children in the east end of the city dying during thefour hottest months only 75 had been restricted to breast-feeding,while the number of breast-fed babies dying showed practically nochange in proportion throughout the year. Although the mortalityamong babies using cows milk is heaviest in the summer months,this is not true of babies who are nursed exclusively. In fact ourfigures show a slightly smaller proportion among such infants forthe summer months. This indicates that it is not heat, but thequality of food consumed which largely causes the deaths from thesediseases. Again when we recall that the great majority of babiesare nursed directly, but that 68 per cent of the children dying fromdigestive and nutritional diseases during the summer of 1909 in 26 Text Appearing After Image: the district studied were being artificially fed. then the argumentfor good wholesome cows milk becomes invincible. In other citiessimilar proportions exist between the fatalities among breast-fedand bottle-fed babies. For example, statistics taken by Dr. Golerof Rochester, N. Y., for the months July, August, September, 1908,show that out of 144 deaths under one, 84 per cent were bottle-fed. Accordingly there can be no question but that milk is an im-portant factor in causing disease. Experience of Other Cities. The experience of St. Louis with its milk supply is being dupli-cated elsewhere. The New York City Department of Health in itsannual report for 1904 gave the following reasons for a decreaseof 62 per cent in its infant mortality from 1881 to 1903: a. Purer milk secured through increased official watchfulness. b. Pasteurization of milk by private philanthropies. In order to lessen its infant death rate the city has taken thesteps discussed in the following chapter.
