Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0162429

NCI Thesaurus Code: C3669  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Disease or Syndrome

NCIt Definition: Inadequate nutrition resulting from poor diet, malabsorption, or abnormal nutrient distribution.

MEDLINEPLUS Definition: 

Food provides the energy and nutrients you need to be healthy. If you don't get enough nutrients -- including proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and minerals - you may suffer from malnutrition.

Causes of malnutrition include:

  • Lack of specific nutrients in your diet. Even the lack of one vitamin can lead to malnutrition.
  • An unbalanced diet
  • Certain medical problems, such as malabsorption syndromes and cancers

Symptoms may include fatigue, dizziness, and weight loss. Or, you may have no symptoms. To diagnose the cause of the problem, your doctor may do blood tests and a nutritional assessment. Treatment may include replacing the missing nutrients and treating the underlying cause.

MSH Definition: An imbalanced nutritional status resulting from insufficient intake of nutrients to meet normal physiological requirement.

NCI-GLOSS Definition: A condition caused by not getting enough calories or the right amount of key nutrients, such as vitamins and minerals, that are needed for health. Malnutrition may occur when there is a lack of nutrients in the diet or when the body cannot absorb nutrients from food. Cancer and cancer treatment may cause malnutrition.

CSP Definition: disorder of nutrition due to unbalanced or insufficient diet or to defective assimilation or utilization of nutrients.
