Malnutrition – an overlooked health problem
Malnutrition is a problem that is unfortunately often overlooked in hospitals and care for the elderly.
It is a paradox. Because we know what works effectively. The right efforts will provide better treatment processes, more dignity and can save society DKK 1.5 billion. annually (source: Diet and Nutrition Association).
Picky eaters often do not get enough nutrition. The body needs calories every day to function. Food is the body's fuel, and this is also where we get important vitamins and minerals.
What does malnutrition do to the body?
When the supply of nutrients is too small, the muscles in the cup weaken. The weakening of the muscles affects everything from the muscles in the legs to the heart muscle and quickly affects functional capacity and quality of life.
Diet for the malnourished
- The food must be prepared with as many calories as possible in small mouthfuls.
- Butter and cream are added wherever possible.
- Fruit can be boiled into fruit porridge and served with whipped cream
- Cream is added to the sauce and soup
- Additionally, Adosan can be added, which contributes with extra energy and/or protein.
Malnutrition and proteins
It is often easy to increase the energy content with butter and cream, but the proteins can be more difficult to increase in quantity.
Adozan can help here.
