This textbook explores nutritional aspects of chronic diseases, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and inborn errors of metabolism or inherited metabolic disorders. Each chapter describes the current status of research on the role of nutrition in these disorders and helps translate it into clinical practice. The main focus is on treatment, with the goal of helping children and adults with special health care needs to develop their potential. Nutritional assessment and prevention techniques are addressed for persons of all ages. All disease chapters are organized to cover biochemical and clinical abnormalities, techniques used in evaluation or diagnosis, nutritional treatment or management, and follow-up procedures. Part I stresses preventive techniques used in assessing and averting diseases and other problems in standard nutrition. Resource materials and quality assurance standards also are addressed. Part II deals with nutrition in the management of chronic diseases and intellectual and developmental disabilities. Part III describes inherited metabolic disorders or inborn errors of metabolism and provides methods of diagnosis and nutritional therapy.
