Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 49)

Abstract

The assessment of nutritional status in the laboratory or clinic has a different significance and is based on methods other than those used in the assessment of nutritional status in epidemiological investigations. In this paper, we shall pay attention to the second type of assessment.
