Studies also have found that nutritional deficiencies are common among the elderly especially for Vitamin B1, B2, B3 (niacin), calcium, Vitamin A and also Iron. Most studies found that elderly are not taking sufficient amount of energy as recommended by the United States Dietary Recommended Intake (US DRI) and also the Malaysian’s Recommended Nutrient Intake (RNI) for those who are 60 years old and above.
Malnutrition Amongst the Elderly
Malnutrition due to physiological and biological changes as a result of aging or insufficient food intake causes the elderly to suffer from :
ü Weight loss
ü Fatigue or lethargy
ü Frequent illness
Coupled with age-related decline in certain nutrients like Coenzyme Q10 and Chromium, the elderly has a higher susceptibililty to develop age-related chronic diseases like diabetes, coronary heart disease, hypertension etc.
It is therefore important for the elderly to get sufficient amount of nutrients to prevent certain age-related diseases.
