Malnutrition is the state of being poorly nourished. It is not always the result of hunger or too little food available. Contributing factors in malnutrition may also include:
Severe acute malnutrition is characterized by:
Children with mild or moderate wasting need just the right nutrition and building up. Since they are not severely wasted or oedematous, their body’s metabolism is reasonably intact and they should not need stabilizing.Such children must be given frequent feeds with high energy and high proteins that will provide the building blocks and energy for new tissue synthesis.
Common protein-energy malnutrition is indicated by decrease in subcutaneous fat, edema or swelling in the stomach, along with skin, hair and nail changes. Malnutrition during childhood may cause stunting and can have permanent developmental, neurological, and cardiovascular effects.
