Nutrition Evidence Alert – September 2020

As the mornings get cooler and the news is full of predictions of a second wave of Coronavirus, many Nutrition Practitioners are wondering what role the nutrition profession will play in supporting recovery from this health crisis. Nutrition Evidence is here to bring you the latest science available to inform your clinical decisions in this area, so you can feel confident in your practice.

It is now clear that those with certain co-morbidities are more susceptible to serious complications from infection with Covid-19.  Many of the conditions identified fall under the umbrella of Metabolic Syndrome.

This month, we begin a series of alerts focusing on Metabolic Syndrome.  Over the next few months, we will be bringing the latest scientific research to your inbox on the different biochemical processes that have gone wrong and lead to metabolic disorder. To begin your dive into this vast subject, check out this short list of recent systematic reviews, before diving through the 26 randomised controlled trials released within the last 10 years.

Happy exploring.
