Malnutrition or undernourishment is a problem that every fourth old person encounters. The human body loses some function, it slows generally and, this consequently leads to an easy loss of muscle mass. Older people also lose appetite or they have problems with their teeth or oral cavity and they can have reduced ability to perceive taste and smell. Another problem is that they don't eat regularly, stop living in a community, eat less and often cannot afford high quality food. Malnutrition can also be linked with chronic or acute diseases that older people frequently suffer from.
Although it may seem that malnutrition is not dangerous, quite the opposite is true. Seniors suffering from malnutrition are much more threatened by infections and their bodies handle convalescence after illness, injury or surgery poorly.
