- Amino acids
- The building blocks of protein in the body. There are nine essential amino acids that are not manufactured by the body and must come from the diet.
- Refers the cumulative metabolic intracellular, molecular processes by which every cell repairs itself and grows.(synthesizing).
- A common eating disorder characterized by an abnormal loss of the appetite for food
- Compounds that protect against cell damage inflicted by molecules called oxygen-free radicals, which are a major cause of disease and aging.
- Bulimia Nervosa
- Eating disorder characterized by binge eating followed by an intentional purging.
- The opposite of Anabolism. The metabolic process that breaks down molecules into smaller units. It is made up of degradative chemical reactions in the living cell.
- Cirrhosis of the liver
- An irreversible advanced scarring of the liver as a result of chronic inflammation of the liver. Can be caused by alcoholism or obesity.
- Complete Proteins
- Proteins that contain ample amounts of all of the essential amino acids
- When an amino acid group breaks off an amino acid that makes a molecule of ammonia and ketoacid.
- A diet low in dietary fiber increases the risk, this is the pouches called diverticula formation on the outer portion of the large intestine.
- Gastric Bypass Surgery
- An operation where a small gastric pouch is created and the remainder of the stomach bypassed
- Incomplete Proteins
- Proteins that contain some but not all of all of the essential amino acids required by the body
- A drug used to induce vomiting
- A childhood form of malnutrition caused by general lack of protein or deficiency in one or more amino acids. Appearance of a person with this is a swollen belly due to inadequate production of albumin, which causes the blood to have a lower osmotic pressure, resulting in more fluids escaping from the plasma.
- malnutrition cause by a lack of kilocalorie intake. Appearance of a person with this is a skeletal one.
- An imbalanced nutrient and or energy intake.
- A condition in which the natural energy reserve in fatty tissue increased to a point where it is thought to be a risk factor for certain health conditions or increased mortality
- Two or more amino acids linked together by a bond called a peptide bond.
- A string of amino acids linked together by peptide bonds. A protein is an example of a polypeptide.
- A severe reduction in vitamin, nutrient, and energy intake, and is the most extreme form of malnutrition
