91.A person with a disorder that limits absorption of bile : 1401644.
91.A person with a disorder that limits absorption of bile is at increased risk for deficiency of which of the following nutrients?
92.What is the most likely explanation for the impaired functioning of the GI tract resulting from folate deficiency?
a.Since folate is required for bile synthesis, folate deficiency results in insufficient bile production, thereby promoting fat malabsorption and diarrhea.
b.Since folate functions, in large part, in the process of cell renewal, a deficiency slows mucosal cell replacement, thereby resulting in decreased GI functioning.
c.The anemia of folate deficiency results in decreased oxygen supply to body tissues, with the intestines being particularly affected because of their high metabolic activity.
d.Since folate functions, in part, in the synthesis of pancreatic digestive enzymes, a deficiency leads to decreased enzymatic capacity in the intestines, thereby resulting in malabsorption.
93.In general, research has demonstrated that foods that contain folate probably reduce the risk of which one of the following cancers?
94.Approximately what percentage of dietary folate is bioavailable?
95.The percent bioavailability of a folate supplement taken on an empty stomach is which of the following?
96.How many dietary folate equivalents are provided by 100 µg of a folate supplement?
97.What fraction of women capable of becoming pregnant ingest the RDA for folate?
98.Research has shown that the risk for neural tube defects is lowered by taking supplements of which of the following vitamins?
99.Which of the following is a type of neural tube defect?
100.Along with anemia, which of the following symptoms is indicative of folate deficiency?
