Arnold is a 57-yr old male who lives alone. He has always been in good health until about a two years ago, when he was in a car accident and suffered injuries severely limiting his mobility and activities of daily living. Since that time his diet and level of physical activity have dramatically changed. He eats primarily convenience foods and very little fresh food which he knows are not as healthy, but cannot shop and cook for himself very easily. He has made progress with physical therapy, but in spite of this, he continues to experience chronic fatigue pain, which prompted a visit to his primary care physician. He was given series of initial screening tests including a (fasting) blood chemistry profile, urinalysis and complete blood count (CBC). Data are shown below.
