What you will learn
Nutrition is the cornerstone of health yet making recommendations to meet individual needs can be difficult. There is no one perfect diet and clinicians must be able to personalize nutritional recommendations. In this workshop we will cover interpretation of functional biomarkers to refine diagnosis of nutritional insufficiency and excess. We will review and compare lab methodology, and discuss both nutritional interpretations of basic labs as well as specialty lab testing.By the end of this course, learners will be able to:
- Identify nutrient deficiencies and excesses through advanced interpretation of basic labs such as CBCs and CMPs.
- Describe and compare nutritional lab methodology to guide selection of specialty testing.
- Identify key nutritional biomarkers in specialty lab tests to guide personalized nutrition recommendations.
