Nutrition focused history and physical examination is essential in order to provide an accurate nutritional plan of care.

Once completed, the nutrition focused physical follows corroborating the history findings and adding new findings that may assist in formulating the nutrition problem list.
The goals of the nutrition focused physical examination include determining the status of nutrition processes including ingestion, digestion, absorption and metabolism, and identifying signs and symptoms of nutritional depletion or excess.
