NIH Effort Seeks to Identify Measures of Nutritional Status

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has undertaken a new program to discover, develop and distribute measures of nutritional status, which should enable RDs to develop increasingly focused and detailed research studies and eventually enhance individual nutritional assessments and interventions.

The Biomarkers of Nutrition for Development (BOND) program brings together experts in the field of nutrition to provide advice to researchers, clinicians and program- and policy-makers on the role of food and nutrition in health promotion and disease prevention. The BOND program seeks to identify nutritional biomarkers—substances that indicate how much of a nutrient a person has eaten and how the body is using that nutrient—which may be used to gauge:

  • How much of the nutrient someone has eaten (nutrient exposure)
  • Whether the person is deficient, adequate or has too much of a nutrient (status)
  • The role a nutrient serves in the body (function)
  • How a person or group responds to a treatment or intervention (effect).
