As the older adult population grows over the next two decades, so will the need to prevent and address age-associated disease. In Handbook of Clinical Nutrition and Aging, a panel of recognized academic geriatricians, clinicians, and scientists provide detailed strategies for using nutritional interventions to ameliorate a host of age-related disorders and thus help to lessen both personal suffering caused by these conditions and the accompanying increases in health care costs. Exhaustive in its scope and clinically focused, the book systematically discusses the interface between nutrition and common medical conditions in older adults. These range from the effects of nutrition on the aging eye, the sense of taste and smell, hearing loss, sarcopenia, and dementia, to the clinical role of nutrition in vascular and pulmonary disorders, cancer, immunity, endocrine and alimentary tract disorders, and renal and musculoskelteal disorders. The authors present the physiological basis for each disorder, provide the latest information about the interaction of nutrition with these conditions, and review the potential routes and mechanisms for clinical intervention. All clinical chapters conclude with a summary of practical applications and treatment guidelines for secondary prevention, management, and therapy. Comprehensive and highly practical, the Handbook of Clinical Nutrition and Aging offers practicing clinicians an up-to-date compendium of expert advice on appropriate nutritional therapies for older adults with chronic diseases and medical conditions
