malnutrition definition and meaning

What is "malnutrition"?

Malnutrition occurs when the body does not receive enough nutrients to function properly, leading to health problems. This can happen because of not eating enough food, poor diet quality, or medical conditions that affect nutrient absorption or metabolism. Malnutrition can result in weight loss, weakness, fatigue, slowed growth in children, weakened immune system, and other health issues. Treatment typically involves improving dietary intake to ensure enough nutrition, addressing underlying medical conditions, and, in serious cases, providing nutritional supplements or providing medical care or support for recovery.
