Malnutrition or abnormal dietary intake which leads to disease is a term which applies to Nutrition Pathology. Our body exposes numerous toxins through the environment and food and hence it is necessary to flush out these pathogenic toxins by the xenobiotic metabolism. Nutritional deficiencies have decreased over the past decade giving importance to the dietary needs and requirements. Malnutrition is of two types namely: Under Nutrition and Over Nutrition. Poor diet, eating disorders, lack of awareness, obesity, and certain diseases are the main causes of nutritional deficiencies. Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) are a set of values used to plan a healthy diet which includes Estimated Average Requirements, Recommended Dietary Allowances, Adequate Intake, and Tolerable Upper Intake Levels. Medical Nutrition Therapy is a therapeutic approach to treat certain diseased conditions, and it is mainly effective in treating Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. This therapy is recommended within international professional guidelines.
