    Protein malnutrition: Insufficient intake of nitrogen-containing food (protein) to maintain a nitrogen balance or nitrogen equilibrium. Children are particularly prone to develop protein malnutrition. To grow, children have to consume enough nitrogen-containing food (protein) to maintain a positive nitrogen balance, whereas adults need only be in nitrogen equilibrium.[[#_ftn1|[1]]]
    The World Health Organization (WHO) defines malnutrition as "the cellular imbalance between the supply of nutrients and energy and the body's demand for them to ensure growth, maintenance, and specific functions." Malnutrition has two forms: protein malnutrition (kwashiorkor) and protein-calorie (marasmus) malnutrition. Marasmus has to do with an inadequate intake of protein the calories while Kawashiorkor includes inadequate protein intake with reasonable caloric, energy, and intake.
    Marasmus
    Marasmus is the deprivation of energy that is needed to maintain a person’s body weight. Its extreme form can be a huge amount of weight lost and cachexia, loss of weight, muscle atrophy, fatigue, weakness and significant loss of appetite in someone who is not actively trying to lose weight. Not symptoms include subnormal body temperate, decreased pulse rate, constipation and starvation diarrhea.[[#_ftn2|[2]]]

    So what exactly IS a physical therapist?
    Physical therapists are licensed professionals who work with people that have sustained disabilities, impairments, or limitations in their overall physical function as a result of disease, injury or pathological processes. Physical therapists examine, evaluate, diagnose, develop treatment plans and provide prognosis for each patient on an individual basis. They use exercise, mobilization, manipulation, heat, cold, and electrical stimulation to restore function, improve mobility, and decrease pain in order to re-establish a patient’s prior functional level.
