Document Abstract:
Obesity, undernutrition and cardiovascular disease are increasing problems in an increasingly elderly population. In the UK, the prevalence of poor nutrition in the elderly has been well documented, and the incidence of diabetes and related cardiovascular disease within the population continues to grow. How are we to interpret these findings and what can be done about it? This review looks at the research that has been done within this area and suggest potential nutritional strategies to treat an ever-increasing problem.
