Essentials of Nutrition and Metabolism in Health and Disease Part 1.

Length of Course: 8 hours 11 minutes

Requirements: None

 

 

Description:

This course provides students with an in-depth look at key metabolic and physiological processes in the body impacted by specific macronutrients (carbohydrates, fiber, protein, fat), as well as macronutrient synthesis, absorption and utilization. Emphasis is placed on explaining how various nutrients are processes at the cellular level, which in turn can promote or discourage specific biochemical pathways linked to degenerative disease processes, such as diabetes, dementia, atherosclerosis, cancer and joint inflammatory diseases. Special emphasis is placed on energy production pathways in the body as well as the synthesis of key molecules, such as DNA and protein synthesis.The course also provides an overview of macronutrient synthesis in plants and animals, macronutrient ingestion, transport and their metabolic processing and utilization in the body.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Students will understand the synthesis of various macronutrients, energy production pathways and shifts in metabolism based on various factors, such as low blood sugar, fasting, insulin resistance, over ingestion of carbohydrates, cholesterol synthesis up-regulation etc.
  2. Students will understand macronutrient physiological processing within the body of all macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein, fat, and fiber), along with their role in energy metabolism and influence of major health and disease pathways.
  3. Students will have the clinical skills to begin counseling patients on key dietary strategies to improve key health parameters
