Maintenance of medical and neurologic health requires adequate ingestion and stores of vitamins and minerals. Nutritional disorders may result from deficient intake or malabsorption of critical vitamins and micronutrients. Persons at risk for deficient nutrient intake include the impoverished in developed and underdeveloped countries (where certain nutritional disorders may be endemic), persons with eating disorders or those engaged in dietary fads, persons with chronic alcoholism, and those receiving prolonged, inadequate parenteral nutrition for chronic medical conditions.
