Nutrition in disease recovery

Speakers:
Shane McAuliffe, RD, MSc

Summary

Nutrition in disease management is cyclical, where malnutrition may lead to diseases and diseases may cause malnutrition. Hence maintaining proper nutrition before risks for diseases increase is ideal. In this same light, in times of illness, providing the proper nutrition for recovery is crucial. This is especially true in the case of COVID-19 where recuperating can be longer and harder for some who have gotten infected. Shane McAuliffe, RD, MSc, details this in his lecture, where he tackles the effect of disease on nutritional status, and the effect of nutritional status on disease, as well as some critical nutrients to watch out for.
