The Dietetic Pocket Guide adults is designed to help dietitians working in all care settings and with all patient groups to complete a full dietetic assessment and diagnosis.

This guide contains a wealth of relevant information, tests and criteria in 10 chapters that cover nutritional status, energy- and protein requirements, macro- and micronutrients, the gastrointestinal tract, classification of organ failure and diseases, interpretation of laboratory test results, measurement of losses from the body, relevant medication and interactions with food, assessment of body composition and other outcomes for the assessment of patients’ somatic, functional, psychological and social status.

The Dietetic Pocket Guide adults has been developed to support an evidence-based and uniform approach to dietetic diagnosis. It  is linked to this website where you can find additional resources and model patient cases that illustrate the dietetic diagnosis.
