Nutritional Considerations for Healthy Aging and Reduction in Age-Related Chronic Disease
free full text: http://advances.nutrition.org/content/8/1/17.2.full.pdf

"A projected doubling in the global population of people aged >60 y by the year 2050 has major health and economic implications, especially in developing regions. Burdens of unhealthy aging associated with chronic noncommunicable and other age-related diseases may be largely preventable with lifestyle modification, including diet. However, as adults age they become at risk of “nutritional frailty,” which can compromise their ability to meet nutritional requirements at a time when specific nutrient needs may be high.
This review highlights the role of nutrition science in promoting healthy aging and in improving the prognosis in cases of age-related diseases. ...

Coordinated efforts between health care policy makers, health care providers, insurance companies, and nutrition experts are needed to develop comprehensive preventive strategies based on individualized nutritional needs for older adults. Incorporation of “nutrition physical” or screening into the yearly physical examination of older adults will provide the foundation for developing the preventive measures needed."
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
