Nutrition Problem Identification
Overview

The purpose of nutrition problem identification is to document specific nutrition-related problems that require nutrition intervention. These are identified and prioritized based on findings from the nutrition assessment, current problems that compromise VLCAD metabolic stability, normal growth and development, overall health and/or quality of life.

Common Nutrition Diagnoses

For common nutrition diagnoses associated with VLCAD, refer to (RECOMMENDATION TABLE #4, Nutrition Problem Identification for VLCAD) based on the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Nutrition Care Process. The table is organized in the PES (problem, etiology, signs and symptoms) problem statement format developed by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to support the Nutrition Care Process.
