Thomas M. Reimers

The literature on treatment of elimination disorders has been stagnant for many years. In fact, beyond a few provocative correlations, nothing new or novel has been discussed for decades. It is possible, however, for the intrepid author to assemble the existing research in new and novel ways and to do so in a way that makes the material readily understandable, clini¬cally useful, and downright interesting. Tom Reimers has done just that in this book, which will grace my shelf now and for many years to come.”—Patrick C.

Many people in our communities deal with the stark reality of food insecurity coupled with a reliance on inexpensive, nutrient-poor calories that contribute to the nationwide prevalence of obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic conditions.

It has long been known that nutritional deficiencies are associated with morbidity and mortality in hospitalized patients. Registered dietitians (RDs) are responsible for the diagnosis and treatment of malnutrition in all practice settings. Accurate diagnosis of malnutrition depends on the skills of RDs in completing the nutrition assessment combined with critical thinking skills.
There are five components of the nutrition assessment; they are as follows:

• Nutrition-focused physical exam

• Client history

• Food and nutrition history
