Vernon Nutritionist

Vernon Nutritionist - Not having enough important nutrients in the diet will result in a lot of conditions which fall under nutritional diseases. Usually, these illnesses can be generally related with chronic malnutrition. Problems like obesity because of too much eating can also significantly contribute to serious health problems. Acute poisoning can be caused by an excessive intake of some nutrients.


When the body consumes too many calories than the amount of exercise the body is performing, obesity can happen due to a distorted energy balance. It can lead to health issues like diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Obesity can lead to an increased mortality and different health problems.

Amongst the important factors in obesity is the normally affordable low-cost food which is offered to the poor within rich countries. These fast foods are high in fats, low in nutritional value and high in additives and sugars. In wealthy nations, obesity is usually regarded as a sign of poverty and malnutrition. Conversely, within poorer countries, obesity is often connected with wealth and good nutrition. Other causes of obesity comprise: sleep deprivation, heredity, stress and lack of exercise. Acute overeating can even be a sign of an eating disorder, like for example Bulimia.

When consuming Goitrogenic foods, there is a risk of developing goitres that are caused by a low uptake of iodine within the body.

Vitamins and Micronutrients

When the body experiences overly high storage vitamin levels, vitamin poisoning could take place leading to toxic symptoms. The various names of the conditions will be derived from the name of the vitamin involved. For instance, hypervitaminosis A refers to too much vitamin A within the body. Iron overload disorders are sicknesses that happen caused by the over accumulation of iron within the body and the inability for this nutrient to exit, hence causing a dangerous build up. Haemochromotosis is an instance and the organs which can be affected consist of the the liver, the endocrine glands and the heart.


Severe health issues can take place when nutrients are unavailable to the system. For instance, lack of proteins, fats and carbohydrates can lead to protein energy malnutrition called Kwashiorkor disease. Marasmus and mental retardation can also result. When vitamins and minerals are restricted from the diet to poor nutrition, conditions like for example Calcium Deficiency, Rickets, Goitre or Iodine deficiency, Tetany, Beriberi, Anemia or Iron Deficiency, Selenium Deficiency and Zinc Growth Retardation among others can occur.
