Human nutrition och fysiologi

Kursen tar upp förekomst, upptag och omsättning av de viktigaste näringsämnena i maten. Vidare behandlas de fysiologiska processer som sker vid i intag, matsmältning och upptag av


Näringsämnena. Vidare beskrivs hur de fysiologiska processerna regleras. Sambandet


mellan kostvanor och de vanligaste folkhälsoproblemen i Sverige diskuteras och jämförs med andra industriländer såväl som utvecklingsländer. Studenterna beräkna sitt eget kost- och energiintag och utvärderar dem mot kostrekommendationer. Kursen ger också en översikt av trender och nya metoder i den senaste forskningen inom nutrition och fysiologi.


Kursen består av föreläsningar, övningar såväl som grupp- och projektarbete inom följande ämnen:



  • Nutrition



  • Humanfysiologi



  • Svenska och internationella näringsrekommendationer



  • Nationella och globala kostvanor



  • Energibalans och näringsstatus



  • Kostregistrering



  • Kost- och hälsosamband



  • Näringsbehov hos barn, äldre och gravida




I ett projektarbete kommer studenten att kunna fördjupa sig i valda delar av kursens


innehåll.


Information från kursledaren

Welcome to the course in Human Nutrition and Physiology!

The course will include lectures on campus, lectures on Zoom and obligatory laboration at the Akademiska Sjukhuset.

The course covers the occurrence, uptake and turnover of the main nutrients in food. The course also covers the physiological processes involved in intake, digestion, and absorption of these nutrients and describes how these physiological processes are regulated. The link between dietary habits and the most common public health problems are also discussed for Sweden, other industrial countries, and developing countries. Students can calculate their own dietary and energy intake and evaluate them against the dietary recommendations. The course also provides an overview of the trends in the recent research in nutrition and physiology as well as novel methodologies. The course consists of lectures, exercises as well as group and project work within the following topics:

- Nutrition

- Human physiology

- Swedish and international nutrition recommendations

- National and global dietary habits

- Energy balance and nutritional status

- Dietary record

- Diet and health relationship

- Nutritional requirements in children, elderly, and pregnancy
