Should nutritional recommendations change once we are over 80 years of age?
A colleague of mine whose Mother is 82 and extremely active started having back problems. The MRI revealed problems also with her kidneys. When she spoke to a friend who was a nutritionist, she recommended less fresh fruit high in acid. Her pain is now manageable but this leads me to question if we have the right recommendations and supporting research for nutrition for our aging population.
Food and health are much more intertwined then the medical profession seems to acknowledge. I have yet to meet a doctor who gives it any real thought other than the same speech they give us all to watch our diet even though they have no real information for what to watch for since it can change from person to person. Still wondering why it is not a much larger part of their education and training.
Your national needs change at different ages and different phases it would be so helpful if our doctors were educated enough to guide us in this.
