As per available reports about 2 Relevant Journals, 20 Conferences, and 2 Workshops are related to Clinical Malnutrition.
Malnutrition is a nutrient deficiency state of protein, energy or micronutrients (vitamins and minerals). This causes measurable harm to body composition, function or clinical outcome. Malnutrition is both a cause and consequence of ill health.We tend to visualise malnutrition as solely affecting starving children in the developing world, but it is common at home, particularly in elderly and hospitalised populations and massively increases a patient's vulnerability to disease. It is a clinical condition.
There are two forms of protein-energy malnutrition (PEM):
1. Kwashiorkor: The patient’s generally have fair-to-normal energy intake, but inadequate protein. It is associated with oedema and hepatomegaly.
2. Marasmus: The patient has inadequate energy and protein intake. It is associated with severe wasting. Micronutrient deficiencies, deficiency of iron causes anaemia and fatigue, impaired cognitive development and reduced growth. Iron is necessary for synthesis of haemoglobin and myoglobin.
Deficiency of iodine causes goitre, hypothyroidism and growth restriction. Vitamin A deficiency causes night blindness, immune deficiency and increased childhood illness and death. Deficiency of zinc causes immune deficiency, acrodermatitis, increased childhood illness and death. Globally, malnutrition is the most important risk factor for illness and death. It affects children and pregnant women disproportionably. Malnutrition in older adults can lead to various health concerns, including a weak immune system, which increases the risk of infections, poor wound healing and muscle weakness, which can lead to falls and fractures. Causes of malnutrition include health concerns, restricted diets, limited income, reduced social contact, depression and alcoholism. The cases of malnutrition can be reduced by observing the loved ones eating habits, noticing for weight loss and also keep a note on your loved ones medications. Patients suffering from malnutrition should be under medical supervision, encouraging eating foods packed with nutrients, plan between meal snacks and encouraging regular physical activity.

Scope and Importance:
In the field of clinical nutrition, malnutrition has causes, epidemiology and management distinct from those associated with malnutrition that is mainly related to poverty. The main causes of clinical malnutrition are: • Cachexia caused by diseases, injuries and/or aging • Difficulties with ingestion, such as stroke, paresis, dementia, depression, dysphagia Clinical malnutrition may also be aggravated by iatrogenic factors, i.e., the inability of a health care entity to appropriately compensate for causes of malnutrition.
Clinical Malnutrition Conference aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all the aspects of the causes of Clinical Malnutrition and its effects. It also provides the platform for researchers, scholars and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the field of Clinical Malnutrition. The recent research in Epidemiology shares knowledge to scholars pursing their studies in this field.
Mortality due to malnutrition accounted for 58 per cent of the total mortality in 2006. In 2010 protein-energy malnutrition resulted in 600,000 deaths down from 883,000 deaths in 1990. Other nutritional deficiencies, which include iodine deficiency and iron deficiency anaemia, resulted in another 84,000 deaths. In 2010 malnutrition caused about 1.5 million deaths in women and children. Roughly $300 million of aid goes to basic nutrition each year, less than $2 for each child below two in the 20 worst affected countries. The global market is driven by growing concern towards healthy, nutritious, convenient food products and increasing demand for functional food & beverages. The food market is projected to reach a value of $39.5 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2015.
