What is "nutrition risk"?

An individual at nutrition risk has been determined by a health or nutrition professional to have a medical-based or nutrition-based condition such as having anemia, being underweight, or having a poor diet. An assessment for nutrition risk includes height and weight measurements as well as blood work.
