Learning Objectives

The course aims to give some fundamentals on metabolic alterations strictly related to nutrition and examples related to malnutrition (under and overnutrition). Furthermore, the nutritional needs found in particular physiological situations (pregnancy, breastfeeding, elderly, etc.) and in some pathologies (intolerances and allergies, favism, phenylketonuria, etc.) will be examined.

Program

  • Metabolic alterations related to protein metabolism (eg phenylketonuria, amino acid malabsorption, etc.); the metabolism of lipids (eg hypo-hyporlipidemia, etc.); the metabolism of carbohydrates (eg favism, glycogenosis, galactosemia, etc.).
  • The metabolic alterations resulting from an imbalance in the supply of nutrients.
  • Body composition and nutritional status. Nutritional standards and food guidelines
  • Metabolism of adipose tissue and obesity. Thinness. Malnutrition.
  • Food intolerances and allergies.
  • Iodine and endemic goiter.
  • Nutritional needs of pregnant and breastfeeding women: energy, proteins, vitamins, and minerals.
  • Nutrition and growth: the newborn; the baby from 6 to 12 months; the child up to 10 years; adolescence,
  • Nutrition and exercise: substrates consumed during sports; relationship of substrate consumption with the duration and intensity of effort; the role of proteins in muscle metabolism; vitamins and minerals in physical activity; water-saline balance.
  • Nutrition in the elderly: effects of nutritional deficiencies on the elderly population.

Bridging Courses

It is hoped that the student has already taken the  following exams:

Biochemistry

Biochemical Chemistry and Properties of Foods

Physiology

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

D1 - Knowledge, and understanding. The student must be able to describe the properties of matter, highlighting the basic knowledge of micro and macronutrients, body composition, and human metabolism. He will have to have mastery of the concepts related to cellular and general metabolism. These skills will be tested through oral questions.

D2 - Ability to apply knowledge and understanding. The student will have to be able to use nutritional terminology correctly and will have to know how to apply the acquired knowledge knowing how to relate the quality of nutrition with human body composition and metabolism. These skills will be tested through oral questions.

D3 - Autonomy of judgment. The student must be able to critically evaluate the role of the micro-and macronutrients introduced with the diet and their correlation with the metabolism; he will also have to be able to identify both the criticalities and the strengths with which nutrition can act. These skills will be verified through targeted oral questions of an application type.

D4 - Communication skills. The student must be able to describe what they have learned during the course expressing themselves clearly, with appropriate terms, and with appropriate examples.

D5 - Learning skills. The student must be able to construct his / her scientific growth path in a critical and autonomous way, being able to correctly use the study material provided by the teacher and the in-depth material that he himself can obtain. These skills, as far as possible, will be stimulated by the teacher by proposing in-depth studies also in English.

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Didactics, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Didactics

 The course includes lectures. Students can attend lessons to request clarifications from the teacher. The teaching material and specific communications of the teacher are available, together with other support activities, within the Moodle platform ›blended.uniurb.it

Obligations Attendance at the lessons is not compulsory, but it is strongly recommended. Elementary knowledge of biochemistry and physiology are required.

PICCIN ed. 2002 The necessary updates will be indicated during the course and reported on the Moodle platform. Mode of assessment The assessment of learning involves an oral test. The test will aim to verify the knowledge acquired and will also allow evaluating the ability to correlate the various topics covered in the course, communication skills, and the ability to solve problems of a practical nature. The answers will also be judged on the basis of the expository capacity and the language used as correct and appropriate scientific terminology. The oral exam is judged with a mark out of thirty
