Example text

E. Apr. May Aug. Sep. Oct. Nov. Apr. Fig. 8. I feel I must issue a general warning. These tests are not easy. The technique is simple, but tests both with transketolase and ascorbic acid involve reading optical densities in the neighbourhood of 0 1 and very considerable practice is necessary before consistent triplicate results are obtained. Until this stage is reached it is worth­ less going on. Recently a colleague rang me up to say that he was visiting six labor­ atories between London and Scotland and he was asking each to estimate his leucocyte ascorbic acid.

Being taken as abnormal, and it was found that after six months stay in the home the level had not risen to normal in most instances on the diet provided. In the same month Leevy and his colleagues14 reported from New Jersey that 45 per cent of their lesser income hospital patients had a low serum folate level (less than 3-2 ng. ) when admitted. At the same time Forshaw15 again wrote from Liverpool, this time to say that he now had 47 patients with macrocytic anaemia due to nutritional deficiency of folic acid and that of these 25 were over the age of 60: altogether females outnumbered males by two to one, but over the age of 60 there were 20 females and only 5 males.

With proper diagnostic evaluation, however, one might reveal the presence of marginal deficiency, modify dietary habits, or supply supplements, and thereby prevent the appearance of acute deficiency disease. Such methods not only serve to reveal malnutrition as it may exist, but also serve as a nonsubjective basis for prophylactic therapeutics. Various tools have been employed for the assessment of nutritional status. These have included the dietary history and the determination of blood levels or urinary excretion levels of vitamins.
