Charting Your Health:
How to Find Out if You Have Nutritional Deficiencies


Many Americans -- even those who think they are eating relatively healthy -- may be suffering from a nutritional deficiency.

40 percent of Americans know they should eat better, but don't.

In fact, according to a survey by the American Dietetic Association, 40 percent of Americans say they know they should eat a healthful diet, but for one reason or another have failed to implement that behavior in their diets. Another 32 percent, meanwhile, have a "don't bother me" attitude about food and nutrition, saying eating healthy is not a concern for them.

Similarly, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Healthy Eating Index found that 16 percent of the U.S. population had a "poor" diet while 74 percent had a diet that "needed improvement."

Even with the best intentions, eating right can be difficult in the midst of everyday obligations with work, family, and other responsibilities. But it should be a number one priority.

As the USDA pointed out, poor or inadequate diets are linked to four of the top 10 causes of death -- heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes. And as it turns out, most of us have less-than-ideal diets that essentially leave our bodies starving for more nutrients.

Poor diets or inadequate diets are linked to four of the 10 top causes of death: heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes.

Along with poor diets, studies have found that key nutrients in foods have declined from 1909 to 1994, likely because the soil is not as nutrient-dense as it once was and processing of foods degrades nutrients that do exist. So not only are we eating fewer healthy foods, but those we do eat contain fewer nutrients than they once did.

Some of the more common nutrient deficiencies in the United States include:

  • Zinc

  • Iron

  • B vitamins

  • Magnesium

  • Calcium

  • Vitamins E and C

  • Phosphorus

  • Vitamin D

  • Fiber

  • Folic Acid

  • Essential Fatty Acids

  • Chromium
