A thought-provoking panel discussion on the Impact of Malnutrition on Women and Children was held on April 9th, 2023, in Beverly Hills, CA. The conversation was moderated by Dr. Tanu Pandey and featured four highly accomplished healthcare specialists- Dr. Sanjiv Jain, Dr. Draupadi Talreja, Dr. Shilpa Jindani, and Dr. Kalyani Mehta. They provided unique insights into how malnutrition contributes to a range of disorders that are very common but easily treated, such as underweight, iron deficiency anemia, and musculoskeletal pain. These disorders are prevalent among the undernourished populations. The panelists discussed how pregnant women with poor access to three meals a day remain underweight throughout their pregnancy, leading to underweight babies and suboptimal brain development. They also highlighted how a lack of nutrients like iron, calcium, vitamin D, vitamin B complex, and folic acid could cause anemia and disorders of bone-like rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Protein deficiency can cause severe underdevelopment of organs, leading to diseases like marasmus and kwashiorkor. Iron deficiency can also cause restless leg syndrome at night while sleeping. The interactive Q&A session that followed was met with enthusiasm from the audience. The guests were curious about food combinations that should not be eaten together, such as palak and paneer, which interact negatively. They also wanted to know more about common foods like oat milk, brown rice, and wheat. The panel of physicians answered all queries scientifically, citing medical literature and evidence-based medicine. We are incredibly thankful to Dr. Puneet Chandak and Mrs. Sonia Batra for hosting the event and enabling a lovely afternoon of insightful exchange /outreach and fundraising.
