Nutrition plays a significant role in health promotion and in disease prevention and management. Variety, balance, and moderation are the keys to healthy eating; when these guidelines are not followed, unhealthy eating patterns can form that may negatively affect health status over time. Patients often find it helpful to work with a clinician to provide guidance on a variety of issues, including choosing healthy foods, planning healthy meals, food allergies or insensitivities, and sociocultural factors. Obtaining nutrients directly from food is ideal, though supplementation may be necessary when advised.
