How is the nutrient used in the body? Be specific. Deficiency/insufficiency signs and symptoms List the main ones and discuss briefly some of the more important ones and why these occur.

I have written the fact sheet which is fine, I need help with the critical discussion, please. Instructions: Students will be required to create a fact sheet Fact Sheet: Functions i.e. How is the nutrient used in the body? Be specific. Deficiency/insufficiency signs and symptoms List the main ones and discuss briefly some of the more important ones and why these occur. Therapeutic uses and supplemental doses i.e. How might a nutritional therapist use this nutrient supplementally for therapeutic uses? What doses have been shown in research to be therapeutically useful for these purposes? Is this consistent? Dietary sources Which foods have the highest source of nutrients? How do you know? Are there any factors, which might affect the bioavailability of the nutrients from these sources? RNIs for various age groups (UK students) or EU RDAs (Ireland students). Toxicity level and symptoms Differentiate between the upper safe limit and the toxicity threshold to discuss what happens if someone consumes more than the body can cope with. Interactions with other nutrients and interactions with drugs . What evidence is there that combined use of this nutrient with nutrients or drugs could be harmful? What is the reason for this? Discussion: Strengths and limitations of evidence used What kinds of evidence did you find . observational, case study, clinical research? Critical evaluation of evidence used Present an unbiased yet balanced argument based on the evidence used. Consider the source, the aims of the work and whether these were achieved, the style of writing (. sensationalistic), whether the evidence you chose has been interpreted fairly by the author. Relevance and application to clinical practice Could you make generalisations or expect to replicate these findings for clinical practice? How useful and applicable was what you learned?Show more
