Background: Aging declining immune response, and often compromised gastrointestinal tract functions result in altered digestion and/or malabsorption. These problems are manifested by the presence of abnormally increased amount of yeast and vegetable cells in their stool revealed by the simple microscopy.

Methods: We compared stool studies between young (15-59 years; n=101) and elderly ( ≥ 60 years, n=99) adults for the presence of yeast and vegetable cells by stool microscopy in rural Bangladesh.

Results: Among the older subjects yeast (40% vs. 22%, p=0.038) and vegetable cells (55% vs. 40%, p=0.023) were most common in their stool specimens and the ova of Ascaris lumbricoides (5% vs. 21%, p=0.003) were found less often than in the younger subjects.

Conclusion: Findings may have far reaching public health implications for formulating appropriate health care delivery for elderly population in rural Bangladesh.
