A Food-Drug interaction can occur when the food we eat reacts with certain ingredients in the medicines you take, thereby making the medicine
ineffective. For example, it can reduce the absorption of the drug or speed up its elimination.
Does nutrient deficiency affect the drug transport?
Yes many drugs are transported in blood, bound to the plasma proteins. For example, Albumin is the most important drug-binding protein
in the blood. Severe malnutrition can affect the plasma proteins and their ability to bind medicine.
