Primary Care and Nutrition

Nutritional science studies how the body breaks food down (catabolism) and the way it repairs and creates cells and tissue (anabolism). Essential nutrients required for body include protein, carbohydrate, fat, vitamins, minerals and electrolytes. Normally around 85 percentage of daily energy use is from fat and carbohydrates and the remaining 15 percentage from protein. The required amounts of the essential nutrients differ by age and also with the state of the body. Good nutrition can be adequate with well-balanced diet combined with regular physical activity that could be a cornerstone of good health whereas poor nutrition will lead to reduced immunity, increased susceptibility to disease, impaired physical and mental development, and reduced productivity. Family Physicians suggest that nutrition services can have an important role in prevention and management of many conditions but access to these services in primary care is limited. In order to integrate registered dietitians with family physicians to improve patient access to those services by reducing the range of problems seen in primary care and by increase the collaboration.
