Nutritional status is considered an important risk factor and as a prognostic factor for infectious diseases, given its close relationship with the immune response against them, immersed in a bidirectional pattern of synergistic interaction, where a worse nutritional status contributes negatively to development and evolution of infections, and where infections cause a worsening of nutritional status. In this sense, it is noted that nutritional status can influence morbidity and mortality due to diarrhea and respiratory diseases, especially in children under 5 years of age; however, this does not seem to be the case for some parasitic diseases such as malaria.
