Description Biochemical Measures of Nutritional Status. As Used in UK National Surveys of Nutritional Status
Creation Date 01 January 1999
Doc type Article
Document Abstract:
Various biological markers have been utilised as indicators of nutritional status because they give a predictive response to a given dietary component. They are also useful as independent validity checks in dietary surveys, as compared to direct measures of dietary intake, which are more prone to random errors. However, their usefulness as biochemical parameters depends on their sensitivity to fluctuations in dietary intake and robustness to interference from various external factors.
