Macro Nutrient Disease

Part 1:

Select an inborn error in metabolism which causes a disease that negatively affects a macro-nutrient. Fat, sugar or protein is either malabsorption or incorrectly stored or metabolized. There are many of them listed in the chapters for those macros. (Do not do diabetes please-select something more obscure or rare, also do not pick atherosclerosis or marasmus and kwashiorkor) Write a 1-2-page, single spaced article about the disease and what causes it. Include 2 minimum scientific peer-reviewed references-your book is not one of the 2 references but could be reference # 3. Check out the references at the end of the chapters for that disease. Write this section (Part 1) as if you were writing to fellow health professionals.

Part 1 is worth 80 points.

Part 2:

Part 3:

For part 3, write a recommendation of changes to the patient’s diet in a language the patient understands.1 page single spaced. A grading rubric is located in Blackboard I am not as strict about rubrics as others just use it as guidelines but please do not let it restrict your creativity.

Part 3 is worth 40 points.
