Nutritional inquiries in older persons in relation to recommended amounts of nutrients



Nutritional inquiries in older persons in relation to recommended amounts of nutrients



Voeding 27(10): 529-532



Little research has been done regarding the actual nutritional needs of the aged and with respect to their physical activity. Studies with a respiratory calorimeter would be more useful than basal metabolism data. The nutritional requirements generally cited for the aged are very arbitrary. There are reasons for believing that amino acid needs are specifically increased in old age. Recommendations in the Netherlands call for a fat content no greater than 25%. The non-institutionalized aged frequently live under unfavorable circumstances, especially when living alone, as they frequently cannot properly care for themselves. An extensive program of research has been set up by authorities of the city of Rotterdam to determine the condition of aged persons living there. Nutrition must be considered hand in hand with general health.
