Imprecise Perception about Clinical Nutrition Hindering the Growth of Clinical Nutrition Market

It has been observed globally that most people generally do not understand the difference between nutrition and clinical nutrition. In most parts of the world (other than cases where malnutrition arises due to lack of proper food or affordability of proper food), people believe that any malnutrition can be simply treated by making required dietary changes. They fail to realize that malnutrition is not always due to improper diet and can be due to many other conditions, such as nutrient absorption disorders or metabolic syndromes.

This misconception about clinical nutrition prevents many people (particularly from emerging and third-world countries) from even visiting healthcare professionals or even following their instructions and using clinical nutrition (as most people in these countries consider clinical nutrition used only by severely ill people). These false perceptions about malnutrition in general and clinical nutrition, in particular, are restraining the growth of this market
