Clearly the answer to this depends on the context of the question, but the general answer based on the plain meaning of the phrase relates to how well businesses are managed. To the extent that I value businesses for a living I regularly analyze companies for what we refer to as "company specific ri…sk factors;" which is a closely related concept, but goes beyond the borders of the organization. If we look at the industry and see that the fixed assets of participating firms generally turn over (revenue divided by fixed assets) at a rate of 2.5 times, and we look at the company under analysis and see that the fixed assets are turning at 1.5 times, we would expand our analysis to see if we could find out why. The probable reasons would be that the machines are old and no longer economically productive; there is a problem of plant floor organization that does not permit the optimum use of the equipment; there is a regularity of supply issue; or, there is a management problem. These reasons would all, in one way or another, constitute organization deficiencies. There are others also, that are not quite so obvious, but are very important also; they might include lack of documentation of business activities and processes, inadequate human resources management, etc. In my business what we refer to as the "Cost of Equity Capital" increases as the organizational deficiencies become known, translating into company specific risk. Company specific risk also includes external factors, such as economic factors over which the company has no control, and is a larger concept than just organizational deficiencies. Hope you find this helpful. (MORE)
A deficiency disease is caused by lack of some nutrient, or essential component for proper bodily functioning. It means that an individual is not getting some really important vitamin or mineral. This can lead to severe consequences for growth, health, or proper bodily activities. However, few are f…atal except in long-term chronic cases, and many are treated by simply supplying those nutrients in some form. A widespread deficiency disease among early sailors was scurvy, which results from a lack of vitamin C. (MORE)

Niacin, or vitamin B3 occurs in most grains, especially whole grains. Severe deficiency of niacin (which is usually associated with malnutrition, or starvation) causes the disease pellagra. The main symptoms of untreated pellagra are the "4 D's": Diahrrea, dermatitis (red sores or itching), dementia… and death.. In previous generations, niacin was sometimes called Vitamin PP (for Prevents Pellagra.) The body can create niacin from tryptophan, an amino acid that occurs in milk and meat. People who eat little protein have an increased need for niacin.. Many people believe that a mild niacin deficiency slows the metabolism and decreases tolerance to cold.. The daily requirement for niacin ranges from 12mg in children to 18 mg in pregnant and nursing women.. Niacin defiencies tend to occur only in areas where people eat corn (or maize) instead of wheat, rye or other grains. That's because corn contains niacin in a form the body cannot use. When corn meal or flour is processed with lime, it releases the niacin.. One way to prevent a niacin deficiency is to take a daily multi-vitamin and eat a balanced diet including whole grains and poultry, milk, meat, and eggs. (MORE)

It means that you should be getting more iron in your diet. The human body conserves iron by recycling iron from old red blood cells to make hemoglobin for new red blood cells. However, a constant intake of new iron is required for optimum health. Low iron levels may be caused by inadequate in…take, by poor absorption, by parasites within the body, or by medical conditions that cause undiagnosed internal bleeding (polyps, ulcers). Those who give blood, or women who have excessive menstrual bleeding, or women who are pregnant or lactating may develop iron deficiency. There are also some medical conditions that prevent proper absorption of iron. Untreated, deficiency can lead to anemia. Anemia is characterized by under-developed red blood cells that lack sufficient hemoglobin, reducing their oxygen-carrying capacity. Symptoms of iron deficiency may include : fatigue loss of stamina susceptibility to infections hair loss dizziness headaches brittle nails decreased mental concentration, apathy, or depression. * Iron deficiency in children is associated with learning disabilities and lower IQs. An unusual neurological reaction to low iron is the behavioral abnormality called pica. S ufferers have subconscious cravings and will consume unsuitable materials such as dirt, clay, laundry starch, charcoal, paint chips, and other non-nutritive substances. (MORE)

Kwashiorkor is the name of the condition experienced by people whohave protein malnutrition. Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kwashiorkor
Albumin is a protein in the blood that is synthesized by the liver. It represents visceral (or "organ") protein stores in the body.. A person may have hypoalbuminemia (or low albumin levels) for many reasons. Dietitians use the serum albumin level as an indicator of protein malnutrition, though oth…er situations may cause a low albumin level (stress, surgery, impaired liver function or overhydration of body tissues). . Protein losses may occur due to overall poor nutritional intake of calories and protein, protein losses in the urine, stool, blood or in wounds. Most healthy people do not lose protein in this way. . When a person does not eat enough calories to maintain normal bodily functions, the body may break down protein for calories. This does not happen overnight, since some days a person will eat more than other days. This process of protein degredation is called is called gluconeogenesis. . This occurs in malnourished children (in 3rd world countries or in poverty) and often hospitalized patients that do not eat enough and are under stress. . Indications of low protein stores are thin or sparse hair, poor wound healing, swelling in the hands or feet (called edema), or inability to fight disease (poor immune function). A person may also exhibit muscle wasting due to loss of lean body tissue. Albumin is measured in blood, so a person must have blood drawn in order to find out their albumin level. . In order to improve the albumin level, the person should consume both adequate calories and adequate protein. Adequate servings from the Food Guide Pyramid should be eaten on a daily basis. This includes at least 6 starch or bread servings, 2-4 fruit servings, 3-5 vegetable servings, 2 dairy group servings and 2 meat servings. . To improve protein stores, your friend should eat more high protein foods. These include eggs (both the whites AND the yolks, lean meats (chicken breast, lean red meats, lean cuts of pork like tenderloin, skim milk, low fat cottage cheese or low fat yogurt). I suggest your friend see a Registered Dietitian for more detailed counseling. Her MD may have recommended lots of egg whites because they contain "albumin". This is not the same type of albumin that is in the blood. Egg yolks are high in cholesterol, but they are also a good source of protein, vitamin A and iron. If your friend's cholesterol is elevated, she can still eat 3-4 egg yolks per week. See previously answered questions about cholesterol for more information, or check out the American Dietetic Association Website for more tips on high protein foods, and low fat/low cholesterol diets.

Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PD) deficiency is a hereditary condition in which red blood cells break down when the body is exposed to certain drugs or the stress of infection.. G-6-PD deficiency; Hemolytic anemia due to G6PD deficiency; Anemia - hemolytic due to G6PD deficiency . G6PD …deficiency occurs when a person is missing or doesn't have enough of an enzyme called glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, which helps red blood cells work properly.. Too little G6PD leads to the destruction of red blood cells. This process is called hemolysis. When this process is actively occurring, it is called a hemolytic episode. The episodes are usually brief, because the body continues to produce new red blood cells, which have normal activity.. Red blood cell destruction can be triggered by infections, severe stress, certain foods (such as fava beans), and certain drugs, including:. Antimalarial drugs . Aspirin . Nitrofurantoin . Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) . Quinidine . Quinine . Sulfonamides . Other chemicals, such as those in mothballs, can also trigger an episode.. Persons with this condition do not display any signs of the disease until their red blood cells are exposed to certain chemicals in food or medicine, or to stress.. Symptoms are more common in men and may include:. Dark urine . Enlarged spleen . Fatigue . Paleness . Rapid heart rate . Shortness of breath . Yellow skin color (jaundice) . Treatment may involve:. Medicines to treat an infection, if present . Stopping any drugs that are causing red blood cell destruction . Transfusions, in some cases . Possible Complications . Rarely, kidney failure or death may occur following a severe hemolytic event. . Outlook (Prognosis) . Spontaneous recovery from hemolytic crises is the usual outcome. (MORE)

Protein deficiency is called Kwashiorkor, and the word means 'the rejected child'. That refers to a child who is no longer getting breast milk because another child has been born. It is easy to spot because the hair of a dark haired child starts looking red. This is because the colour in the hai…r is made by a protein called melatonin and when the body is desperate for protein, it draws it from anywhere it can and so it takes it from the hair colour. Protein is the only substance that can build new body tissue and repair damaged body tissue, so a child with a protein deficiency cannot grow or heal. By the time the hair is starting to look red, there is already major damage to other body systems and even if there is successful treatment, the child will never be the same. (MORE)
