Abstract
Geriatric Nutrition covers the current state of nutritional science for the elderly. The book is devoted to the particular considerations in nutrient requirements and metabolism in older adults. It also ties basic research with current clinical practice. Comprehensive coverage includes diabetes, obesity, depression, dementia, cardiovascular disease, cancer, COPD, ulcers, and immunity. Specialty chapters cover nutrition issues in nursing homes, semi-assisted living situations and ethical issues at end-of-life. [publishers description]
