DRI Updates re Chronic Illness

Dietary Reference Intakes and Chronic Disease Endpoints Workshop (2015)

The Dietary Reference Intakes (DRI) Committees of the U.S. and Canadian governments held a workshop entitled “Options for Consideration of Chronic Disease Endpoints for Dietary Reference Intakes” on March 10 – 11, 2015. The objective of the workshop was to critically evaluate key scientific issues involved in using chronic disease endpoints for setting dietary reference intakes and, in this context, to provide information for future decisions as to whether and/or how chronic disease endpoints can be incorporated into the setting of DRI values.

Nutrient Assessment for DRI Review (2019)

Each country’s DRI committee was asked to select their top three priority nutrients based on public health and/or policy importance. Combining the priorities of both countries, four nutrient areas were selected for further consideration: omega-3 fatty acids, sodium, magnesium, and vitamin E.

The federal governments conducted a workshop in March 2015 to address whether, and how, chronic disease outcomes can be incorporated into setting DRI values. It is expected that this will lay the foundation for an expert report on this aspect of public health.

take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
