Geriatric Medicine and Nutrition

Geriatric nutrition applies nutrition principles to delay effects of aging and disease, to aid in the management of the physical, psychological, and psychosocial changes commonly associated with growing old. Changes associated with normal aging increase nutritional risk for Elderly.

Nutritional needs of the older individual are determined by multiple factors, including specific health problems and related organ system compromise; an individual's level of activity, energy expenditure, and caloric requirements; the ability to access, prepare, ingest, and digest food; and personal food preferences.
