Clinical nutrition is largely concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, and management of nutritional alterations in patients with chronic diseases and disorders. In this context, clinical refers to the treatment of patients, including outpatients in clinics and private practice, as well as inpatients in hospitals. It largely encompasses the scientific disciplines of nutrition and dietetics. Clinical nutrition also tries to maintain a good energy balance while also giving patients with adequate levels of nutrients such protein, vitamins, and minerals.
