Strengthen your critical thinking skills! Join award winning dietitian, Mary Litchford, PhD, RDN, LDN to learn the latest on lab assessment as a predictor of nutritional status!
Using laboratory assessment to document the positive impact of MNT demonstrates the benefits of our professional expertise to the medical team.
Changes in laboratory values reflect changes in medical condition, but not always nutritional status. Learn how to be alert to abnormal laboratory test results associated with acute and chronic conditions managed in part with MNT, and use biochemical and diagnostic test results consistent with nutrient deficiencies or toxicities to support your nutrition diagnoses.
Topics include hydration status, inflammatory biomarkers, nutrition-related anemia, micronutrient deficiencies, and risk markers for chronic conditions. Learn how to interpret commonly ordered labs and strengthen your critical thinking skills in nutrition assessment – the information nutrition professionals need to justify requests for lab tests.
