Research paper

The main purpose of this RP is to critically reflect your understanding of the “Hypertension: Nutritional Management.”  This RP must have 6 pages, including cover page and references, and be presented on APA format. Three source references.
Students will critically evaluate the existing publications related to this RP topic. This assignment is planned to help you review, understand, and apply different concepts related to Hypertension and its nutritional management, as well as to become familiar with the new trends related to Hypertension management.
This RP must include:

  1. Introduction: provide a brief synopsis of the subjects under discussion.
  2. Definition of concepts related to these subjects: for example, the definition, epidemiology and pathophysiology of the Hypertension, nutritional management of the hypertension.
  3. Conclusions and recommendations.  You must express your own opinion how important is to have a proper diet in the hypertension management.


Fundamentals of Nutrition Prompt

Fundamentals of Nutrition Prompt

Prompt/Topic: Anton grew up in France and has come to America for college.  He lived with an French family during his freshman year, but then he moved into an apartment with two other students, all from different countries.  They all study very hard and do not want to take time to cook, so he eats mostly fast or convenience food.  He has found some French convenience foods; they are not as great as home cooking, but he does enjoy the familiar taste of his native country.  Anton is acquiring a taste for American food and pizza, and he often eats fast food for lunch because it is inexpensive and quick to eat.

  1. What concerns would you have about Anton’s eating habits?
  2. What practical changes could Anton make to make his eating habits more consistent with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans?

Write one page about

The agriculture industry is constantly trying to improve itself. Since reproduction plays a large part in the livestock business, much research and technology has been devoted to improving this aspect. Using the internet select a type of reproductive technology (from the list below), provide a brief description of this type of technology, an advantage and disadvantage of it, and discuss how it has changed the livestock industry. Types of technology to choose from include: Artificial Insemination, Sexing of Sperm and Embryos, Embryo Production and Transfer, and Cloning. Make sure you properly cite all of your sources! Lastly, discuss what impact nutrition has on reproduction.


Patient case

Patient: female 
Age: 30 years old 
Height: 5’3” 
Weight 185 lbs 
Activity level: Sedentary 
Blood pressure: 160/95 
LDL cholesterol: 160 mg/dl 
HDL cholesterol: 40mg/dl 
Fasting glucose: 200 mg/dl 
The patient has been experiencing increased thirst and urination and tingling in both of her feet for the last four months. 
1.     What is her BMI? (Show your calculation—4 pts)  What is the significance of her BMI? (2 pts)   Based on the above information, what health condition does this patient appear to have? (4pts) 
2.     What lifestyle changes can she make to help lower her risk for the above-noted condition?  Explain your answers. (lifestyle changes not dietary changes!—list minimum of 2 changes) (10 pts) 
3.     What dietary changes can she make to help lower her risk for the above-noted condition?  Explain your answers. (list diet changes specific for this patient’s condition! Don’t’ just list healthy foods!)  (up to 10 pts) 
4.     Is her LDL cholesterol level at a healthy range?  If not, what dietary changes can she make to help improve this level? (Up to 10 pts) 
5.     Is her HDL cholesterol level at a healthy range?  If not, what dietary changes can she make to help improve this level? (up to 10 pts) 
6.     Input the patient’s current diet into the NutriCalc program and print out the Bar graph, Single Nutrient and Calories and Fat graphs. (10 pts) 
7.     Using the patient’s current diet, make dietary changes you feel are necessary for her condition.   Explain why you have added certain foods and why you have deleted or reduced certain foods.  You must use the provided diet and make any necessary changes. (each substitution explained in detail and related to condition 20 pts; just new diet 5 pts; partial explanations or no correlation, 5 pts) 
8.     Input the NEW entire one-day diet into the NutriCalc program.  Print out the Bar graph, Single Nutrient and Calories and Fat graph.  Use the Calories and Fat graph for the carbohydrate, protein and fat content.  Make sure the recommendations you have made above are reflected into the dietary results.
