Future studies are needed to identify serum biomarkers in order to diagnose malnutrition unaffected by inflammatory states and have the advantage of being noninvasive and relatively cost-effective.
However, a thorough NFPE has an unprecedented role in diagnosing malnutrition. However, due to historical inconsistencies in defining and identifying malnutrition, the actual prevalence in the population is unknown [ 8 ]. Furthermore, malnutrition has been associated with increased healthcare-associated costs including longer hospital length of stay LOS and increased rates of major and minor complications [ 9 ]. Additionally, malnourished patients have a longer LOS at healthcare facilities by an average of 11 days.
Moreover, they were found to have higher rates of readmission or require ongoing services such as home healthcare following discharge [ 11 ]. Hence, due to the recognition of the importance of the impact of malnutrition on economic burden, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services CMS have implemented a change in their reimbursement rates according to its severity [ 5 ].
Malnutrition is associated with an increased risk of major and minor complications as well as an increase in direct and indirect costs. Furthermore, mortality in the malnourished patients was Additionally, disease-associated malnutrition results in an increased number of missed days from work and therefore lower economic productivity [ 14 ].
Indirect costs related to care provided by family members and the subsequent effect on their socioeconomic activities cannot be accurately determined [ 10 ].
Nevertheless, the impact of malnutrition on our society is substantial, and accurate diagnostic measures are necessary to identify those at risk. A major obstacle for diagnosing malnutrition is the lack of a unified definition of the term. Furthermore, there is no standard method for screening and diagnosing patients with malnutrition, leading to confusion and varying practices among physicians across the world.
The appreciation that inflammation plays a major role in the pathophysiology of malnutrition is also lacking. Overall, this has led to a lot of misdiagnoses and a general under-recognition of the importance of malnutrition [ 2 ].

Review " All nutrition scientists, and those who depend on their work, from health care workers, to food regulators, policy makers and educators, can be relieved and pleased that there is now a new edition of this work, which turns out to be remarkably contemporary and relevant This work is not only encyclopaedic on methodology and, therefore, an essential reference for nutrition practitioners, but provides much reconceptualism of our food and nutrition thinking.
Mark L. Wahlqvist, Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition "This second edition provides a needed update, given the significant increase in knowledge related to nutritional assessment as well as heightened research interest in the association between nutritional status and health.
This is probably the best comprehensive reference in the field because it discusses the scientific principles of nutritional assessment as well as the application of nutritional assessment in both research and clinical practice settings. Ney, PhD, RD, Doody's "This valuable text and guide to nutritional assessment of individuals and populations is a welcome rarity, a comprehensive and authoritative book written by a single author.
There is no question that this excellent update of Gibson's Principles of Nutritional Assessment will remain the essential reference book for nutrition students and researchers alike for many years to come.

Ideal methods of nutritional assessment are sensitive and specific. Unfortunately, it is difficult to achieve both in the assessment of nutritional status.
Sensitivity refers to the ability of a technique to correctly identify those affected by a condition for example, under-nutrition as having that condition. Specificity refers to the ability of a technique to correctly classify normal individuals as having normal nutritional status. Body mass index is a global measure of nutritional status that illustrates the difference between these two constructs. Most persons who consume insufficient energy have low body mass index, so the measure is sensitive.
However, there are other causes of low body mass index, including genetics and disease, so body mass index is not specific to nutritional status. The above are what I wanted to understand before I made the download and fortunately this book clearly in the most simple terms gave good insight into these issues thereby assisting me to have a good stepping stone to proffering solutions to diverse nutritional assessment problems.
The books has arrived to office but no internal protection and it's make high risk in quality. Thank you. This is a very good book for people in nutrition field especially those who would like to do some nutritional assessment.
