    Why are you spending forever? It's been awhile for me, but the answers to both questions were in my basic nursing texts.

    What do you think the right answers are, and why?

    The answers to these are simple. Tell us what you think and why. We will not do your homework for you.

    What nutrient might a person need, if on a K+ wasting diuretic? Or if diagnosed with a specific nutrient deficiency? Now, which foods are the best sources of these nutrients?

    Waiting to see what your answer would be and why. Then I'll chime in if you still need help.

    Seriously, you could have googled this by now, you are not going to get spoon-fed the answer. You seem to not want to expend any mental energy on this.

    This was covered in my nutrition prerequisite...

    I'm a huge fan of people helping to help themselves :/, so I'm sure you can google 'what helps people absorb nonheme iron'.

    Don't forget to say please~

    Number two might be easier to figure out if you know what foods decrease your non heme iron absorption. That's how I figured it out.

    I thought the point of homework was for you to actually learn something.

    Look at each of the foods, and see which is the highest in iron. Agree that these questions are very basic
