Doc Talk #127 – Nutrition in Seniors

 

 

Dr Dan and Jamieson talked about nutrition in seniors during this show.

Seniors are at particular risk of being malnourished, partly because many subsist on “tea and toast” diets.

We talked about some of the reasons that seniors are particular risk, weight loss (and when to be concerned) and how nutrition can be impacted by other medical problems.

Listen again to hear out top tips on how to optimize your diet, especially if you are getting on in years (or have a loved one who is).
