Malnutrition in older adults; Food and supplemental approaches to ward off nutritional gaps

Healthy Ageing 2019

Nutritional issues and increased risk of malnutrition, including obesity, are linked to a host of health conditions.

This is especially the case in older adults, where sudden weight loss and loss of muscle mass and strength, are hallmarks of a diet lacking in essential nutrients.

In this presentation, Max Gowland discusses the dietary recommendations best suited to older adults and the challenges they face in sticking to the regimen as they face changes in taste and smell, loss of appetite, dental and chewing problems, and limitations in mobility amongst others.
