Geriatric Nutrition PDF Summary

Abstract: This text explores the realities and fallacies associated with the role of nutrition in the aging process and the effects of age-associated diseases on nutrients. Each chapter attempts to demonstrate specifically the distinctions in nutrient requirements and metabolism in the old (age 70 and over) compared to the general population. This book provides knowledge of geriatiric nutrition for nutrition educators, dietitians, geriatricians, and gerontologists. Topics include: nutritional requireme nts and assessment of the elderly, the role of nutrition in the prevention of age-associated diseases, nutritional deficiencies in the elderly, systems malfunction in the elderly and nutrition, nutrition and behavior, and nutrition misinformation among the elderly (health fraud-creation of food fads for profit).
