CRC - NUTRITIONAL AND CLINICAL - NUTRITIONAL AND CLINICAL MANAGEMENT OF CHRONIC CONDITIONS AND DISEASES Organization: CRC
Date: 2005-09-26
Description: The authors describe the inflammatory response in detail and then proceed to discuss monitoring and treatment of the condition. Ideally treatment includes controlling the infection or healing the injury. This may not be possible in chronic illness, but a balance of n-6 and n-3 fatty acids, with a ratio of between 2:1 and 4:1 in n-6 to n-3 fatty acids, appears to be a promising nutritional agent that promotes an anti-inflammatory milieu.
