Nutrition in the elderly CAPD patient

Part of the Developments in Nephrology book series (DINE, volume 34)


Elderly individuals are at risk of malnutrition due to the aging process. Concurrent disease further impacts on the ability of the body to absorb and use nutrients. Chronic renal insufficiency, with its frequent protein-energy malnutrition, can severely compromise nutritional balance.
