Title: Unintended Weight Loss in Older People

Citation: Evidence Based Practice 11(3).
Abstract: If you are a senior who is experiencing unintended weight loss or you have an older family member who appears to be losing weight or has lost interest in food, this information is for you. An unintentional loss of 5% to 10% of body weight within 6 to 12 months may indicate a serious problem. Unintentional weight loss affects lots of older adults; many are unaware of the problem and have not reported it to their doctor.
