Unintended Weight Loss in Older People
Metadata[+] Show full item record
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.
