What is a PES Statement, also known as
a Nutrition Diagnostic Terminology Statement?
A PES statement (or Nutrition Diagnosis Statement) is a structured sentence that describes
the specific nutrition problem that you (the dietitian) is responsible for treating and working
toward resolving, the cause/s of the problem and the evidence that this problem exists.
Three components make up the PES statement :
The Problem (P)- the Nutrition Diagnosis
The Etiology (E)- the cause/s of the nutrition problem (Nutrition Diagnosis)
The Signs and Symptoms (S)- the evidence that the nutrition problem (Nutrition
The PES statement is a structured sentence, hence has a specific format:
Nutrition Diagnosis term (the nutrition problem)
The Etiology (the cause/s of the problem or Nutrition Diagnosis)
as evidenced by
The Signs and Symptoms (the evidence that the nutrition problem or Nutrition Dx. exists).
Example: Excessive energy intake, related to limited access to healthful food choices at
work, as evidenced by estimated intake of energy (3000 calories /day) in excess of estimated
energy needs (2400 calories/day) and BMI of 45.
Lets look at its parts:
The Problem (P) (Nutrition Diagnosis): is excessive energy intake. This is the specific
nutrition problem that the Nutrition Intervention aims to treat and resolve.
The Etiology (E) (the cause/s of the nutrition problem/Nutrition Diagnosis): is that the client
has limited access to healthful food choices. Healthful (e.g. adequate amounts for fresh fruit and
vegetables) food choices are not provided as an option.
as evidenced by
The Signs and Symptoms (S) (the evidence that the nutrition problem (or Nutrition
Diagnosis) exists: the client’s estimated intake of energy is in excess of his estimated energy
needs The client’s BMI equals 45 (obesity class III).
Now let’s discuss each component of the PES statement.
The Problem (P)- the Nutrition Diagnosis
The Nutrition Diagnosis identifies the specific nutrition problem that the dietitian is
responsible for treating and works towards resolving.
The Nutrition Diagnosis comes from specific terminology as determined by the Academy of
Nutrition and Dietetics.
The Nutrition Diagnosis terms are classified into three categories:
Intake: these diagnoses relate to intake and nutrition related problems (oral, enteral and
parenteral nutrition). Intake diagnosis cover the areas including energy balance, fluid intake and
Examples: excessive energy intake, less than optimal intake of types of carbohydrate, inadequate
Clinical: these diagnoses include medical or physical conditions that have a nutritional impact.
The clinical category covers the areas of functional changes or impairments, biochemical
changes (altered ability to metabolize nutrients) and weight.
Examples: altered GI function, impaired nutrient utilization, overweight/obesity.
Behavioral-Environmental: this category covers the nutritional problems associated with
nutrition knowledge and belief (including attitude), physical activity and function (e.g. ability to
self care) and food access and safety).
Examples: undesirable food choices, physical inactivity and limited access to food or water.
As a general rule (as with most rules there are exceptions) choose from Intake related
Nutrition Diagnosis first, Clinical related Nutrition Diagnosis second and BehavioralEnvironmental last.
Diagnosis should be specific to the role of dietitians. Behavioral-Environmental related Nutrition
Diagnosis often fit better as the etiology (E) (the cause of the nutrition problem), and not the
Nutrition Diagnosis itself. Remember the aim of your Nutrition Intervention is to resolve
(ideally) the Nutrition Diagnosis.
Make sure you check that your Nutrition Diagnosis is something that you as a dietitian
can resolve (ideally) or improve. Some of the Behavioral-Environmental related Nutrition
Diagnosis can be a bit tricky for a dietitian to solve.
How to choose the correct Nutrition Diagnosis
There are no right or wrong diagnosis choice (truly). Some choices may be better than others.
Things to consider include:
1. Is it a nutrition based diagnosis, not a medical diagnosis (e.g. increased nutrient needs v.s.
altered GI function)?
2. Is it the nutrition problem what your intervention aims to solve? Even though the client
may have a particular nutrition problem e.g. inadequate fiber, if your intervention is not
focused on increasing fiber intake i.e. your nutrition goals are around reducing saturated
fat intake, leave that diagnosis for another time.
3. Can Nutrition Diagnosis be resolved (ideally) or improved?
4. Is the Nutrition Diagnosis specific to the role of the dietitian (i.e. something you as a
dietitian is responsible for resolving)? For example Altered nutrition related laboratory
values vs. Excessive carbohydrate intake.
5. Does your Nutrition Assessment data support the Nutrition Diagnosis?
The Etiology (E) -the cause/s of the nutrition problem/Nutrition Diagnosis
The ‘E’ in the PES Statement stands for Etiology. The definition of etiology is “the cause, set of
causes, or manner of causation of a disease or condition.”
Hence the Etiology in a PES Statement describes the cause of the nutrition problem (Nutrition
Diagnosis). The Nutrition Intervention should be aimed at resolving the underlying cause of the
nutrition problem (the Etiology).
The etiology in a PES Statement is free text.. It’s an important skill for a dietitian to is able to
identify the root cause of a client’s nutrition problem.
Etiologies are also grouped into categories based on the type of cause or contributing risk. Below
is the list of categories with an example etiology for each. I have not listed the related Nutrition
Diagnosis, why not try to list them yourself?
Access: e.g. community and geographical constraints (patient lives in urban area with
limited access to fresh fruit and veg. markets). Patient can’t get to a gym and lives in
unsafe area for walking.
Behavior e.g. unwilling or disinterested in making or tracking progress.
Beliefs–Attitudes Etiologies e.g. perception that time and financial constraints prevent
Cultural: e.g. the practice of Ramadan prevents the intake of regular meals.
Knowledge: lack of or incorrect
Physical: e.g. lack of self-feeding ability
Physiologic–Metabolic: e.g. altering fatty acid needs due to chyle fluid leak.
Psychological: e.g. binge eating behaviors associated with a diagnosed anxiety disorder.
Social–Personal: e.g. lack of social and family support for implementing dietary
Treatment: e.g. reduced appetite associated with the use of Ritalin.
How to choose the correct Etiology
Again there is no incorrect choice when deciding between Nutrition Diagnosis Etiology.
Remember: use your critical thinking skills to identify the root cause.
1. The Etiology is the “root cause” of the nutrition problem (Nutrition Diagnosis).
2. The Nutrition Intervention, should aim to resolve the Etiology (ideally).
3. The Etiology is supported by the nutrition assessment data.**
Identifying the root cause
Here is a good trick for finding the root cause for a particular Nutrition Diagnosis. When
looking for an etiology, ask WHY 5 times (or until you come to the last etiology, that you as a
dietitian can address).
Excessive oral intake
Why? Excessive intake of high calorie-density foods and beverages.
Why? Excessive take away food intake.
Why? Client purchases most of his meals from fast food restaurants with limited healthful
Why? The client does not prepare meals at home.
Why? The client lacks the food preparation skills to prepare healthful food at home -root cause.
Signs and Symptoms (S) -evidence that the nutrition problem (Nutrition
Yes we start again with more definitions. Consistency is king! Signs and Symptoms detail the
evidence or defining characteristics that prove that the nutrition problem (Nutrition Diagnosis)
Signs are objective data obtained through direct physical examination, anthropometics,
observation, lab values and test results.
Symptoms are subjective data reported by the client’s or their family’s rather than
actual results. Example 1 : fatigue as evidence that the person perform self care.
Example2 : patient report of usual intake.
Signs and Symptoms are also used during the last stage of the Nutrition Care ProcessMonitoring and Evaluation, to determine the amount of progress made toward resolving the
Nutrition Diagnosis (more on this in future blogs).
It is an important skill for a dietitian to is able to identify the evidence (or Signs and Symptoms)
that demonstrate that a Nutrition Diagnosis exists.
How to choose the correct Signs and Symptoms
1. Do the Signs and Symptoms support and provide evidence that the Nutrition Diagnosis
(nutrition problem) exists?
2. Are the Signs and Symptoms supported by the Nutrition Assessment data?**
3. Are the Signs and Symptoms specific enough that they can be monitored to
measure/evaluate changes from one visit to another?
4. Can measuring the Signs and Symptoms tell you that the problem is resolved or
