Weight Loss in the Elderly

A multitude of factors can contribute to seniors becoming malnourished as they age, which in turn may cause a downward spiral of problems including uncontrolled weight loss, frailty, and increased risk of falls, cognitive dysfunction, weakened bones and muscles, immobility and organ failure. Seniors may eat less or avoid certain foods due to changes in their sense of taste and smell, reduced physical activity, problems with their teeth, the onset of dementia, side-effects of medications, depression and effect(s) of other chronic illnesses. Any unexplained loss of a significant portion of a patient's body weight should be investigated by their primary care physician or geriatrician.
