Abstract :

The determination of serum metabolites as hematological or metabolic profile provides a quick and accurate response of an individual or a group on your diet and your nutritional status, since the blood reflects effectively the available amount of a nutrient in the organism. However, it is noteworthy that there are variations in the blood concentrations of nutrients, being influenced by age, race (in the case of animals), physiological state (with a more pronounced concern when it comes to young, pregnant and postpartum), climate, time of year, among others, which makes it difficult to obtain a comparison pattern capable of ensuring better interpretation of results. The physiological response searched by metabolic or hematological profile has been studied intensively, although the number of measurable variables in these profiles is very large, and in practice it is chosen to parameters that has knowledge about the physiology and biochemistry, which allows for interpretation of results. Thus, it is important to monitor metabolic and expanding the number of variables to be measured in order to reduce and even prevent nutritional problems which may result in serious pathologies that can lead to death. Thus, the dosage of serum concentrations of nutrients and monitoring of blood counts are efficient tools and now widely used in human and animal nutrition.
