Dietary Reference Intakes Linda Gallagher Olsen MEd RD

Dietary reference intakes (DRIs) represent the new approach adopted by the Food and Nutrition Board to provide quantitative estimates of nutrient intakes for use in a variety of settings. The DRIs are the result of a vast expansion in our understanding of the roles of nutrients and other food components that impact long-term health, going beyond deficiency states they expand and replace the series of Recommended Dietary Allowances that have been published since 1941 by the Food and Nutrition...

Glycogen Storage Disease

Glycogen storage diseases GSD are disorders in which glycogen cannot be metabolized to glucose because of an abnormality in the enzymes involved in glycogenolysis. The major sites of glycogen deposition are liver and muscle tissue. Clinical manifestations include hypoglycemia, hepatomegaly, poor growth, muscle weakness, cramping, and fatigue. The most common types of GSD that respond to nutritional therapy are GSD type I and GSD type III. The goal of dietary treatment is to prevent...

Chronic renal failure CRF occurs when renal function has deteriorated so that glomerular filtration rate GFR is reduced and progression to endstage renal disease ESRD is inevitable. Endstage renal disease usually denotes the point at which conservative management of the patient is no longer effective and renal replacement strategies dialysis and transplantation are necessary. The major cause of ESRD in children is chronic glomerulonephritis primarily in older patients, 15 to 19 years of age...

Gastrointestinal Diseases

Gastroesophageal reflux GER is the effortless movement of gastrie contents into the esophagus. While GER is considered a normal physiologic process rather than a disease. it can produce clinical symptoms ranging from mild heartburn to esophagitis. respiratory disease, and even apnea. Gastroesophageal retlux disease GERDl refers to these symptoms. Pediatric patients with GERD may present with chest pain, dyspepsia, vomiting, burping, dysphagia. postprandial fullness, chronic hoarseness and...

Food Allergies

Food allergy can be defined as an immunologie reaction resulting from the ingestion of a food or a food additive as opposed to the more general term food intolerance, which includes any abnormal response to a food or food additive.1 It has been estimated that 6 to of all children are affected by food allergies.Allergies may occur after a small amount of the allergen is ingested and are unrelated to any physiologic effect of the food, food additive, or cross-contaminant.2 The most common...

Inborn errors of metabolism are inherited disorders caused by a defect in enzymes required to metabolize protein, carbohydrate. or fat. The inheritance of most metabolic disorders is autosomal recessive and the incidence uncommon. Many of the disorders result in severe clinical manifestations that often appear soon after birth. Rapid diagnosis and treatment are essential to prevent neurologic damage, mental retardation, and possible death. Because these disorders are rare and require careful...

Autism is a developmental disorder characterized by a severe impairment of language, cognitive skills, and social development.10 Ritualistic and obsessive compulsive behavior is frequently seen.1 Approximately 70r r of children with autism have some level of mental retardation.11 The etiology of autism is unclear but the disorder is believ ed to have a neurobiology- basis with multiple possible causes, including structural abnormalities of the brain, viruses, genetic disorders. chromosomal...

Nutrition Therapy Goals for Type 2 Diabetes

The management goal is to achieve and maintain optimal blood glucose and lipid control by making nutrition and lifestyle changes. Recommendations are to space meals and snacks throughout the day. make healthy food choices. moderate total fat, saturated fat. and calorie intake, and increase physical activity. Insulin sensitivity improves with even a modest amount of weight loss. It is recommended that a moderate calorie restriction. 250 to 500 calories less than average daily intake, be...

Ketogenic Diet Therapy

Although several factors are considered necessary for its efficacy, the diet's exact mechanism of action has not yet been determined. It is known that a high level of ketosis must be reached. Traditionally, ketosis has been monitored by measuring urinary acetoaeetate. Measurement of blood ketones eg, p-hydroxybutyrate may give a more accurate picture of ketosis level although this is not feasible for routine outpatient care. Strict adherence to the diet is essential since only a small variation...

Nutritional Assessment In Sick Or Hospitalized Children

Hospitalized children who are acutely and or chronically ill are at increased risk for malnutrition Table 15-1 ,' and malnourished hospitalized patients suffer disproportionately from both infectious and noninfectious complications.2 Nutritional assessment prov ides the foundation for rational and effective nutritional support see Chapter 1 , but, unfortunately, this process is especially difficult in hospitalized patients. Table 15-2 lists standard methods of nutritional assessment and...

Eating disorders are characterized by a disturbed relationship between nutritional intake and body image, often leading to subsequent medical problems. While eating disorders are found predominantly in the adolescent and young adult populations, they are increasingly being recognized in children and preadolescents. Eating disorders are the third most common chronic illness in adolescents following obesity and asthma.1 Anorexia nervosa is estimated to occur in lt 3 of adolescent women and...

Food Assistance And Nutrition Education Programs

Knowledge of age-appropriate feeding practices and good nutrition concepts cannot be implemented unless a caregiver has access to food or to financial resources to buy food. A number or programs have been created over the years to assist families in obtaining foods, many developed by the US Department of Agriculture USDA . Table 14-1 describes USDA-directed programs for children. In addition, many state and local agencies, neighborhood health centers, and local schools and universities offer...
