This study examined the relationship between dysphagia and adverse outcomes across frailty conditions among surgical patients ≥50 years of age. A retrospective cohort analysis of surgical hospitalizations in the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project's National Inpatient Sample among patients ≥50 years of age undergoing intermediate/high risk surgery not involving the larynx, pharynx, or esophagus. Of 3,298,835 weighted surgical hospitalizations, dysphagia occurred in 1.2% of all hospitalizatio...

This study aimed to assess the relationship between food security and health outcomes among older adults (age 65+) in the U.S. We used a pooled sample (2011-2015, N = 37,292) from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) and ordered logit models to assess characteristics associated with food security including health conditions (diabetes and hypertension) and functional activity limitations. We estimated that 1.3 million individuals aged 65+ in the U.S. had low/very low food security. Having ...

To enhance prevention and treatment of malnutrition in older adults before, during and after hospitalization, deeper understanding of older adults' and informal caregivers' perspective on nutritional care is important. One-time in-depth interviews were conducted with 15 older adults who had been discharged from hospital, and seven informal caregivers. We explored their experiences and needs regarding nutritional care provided in the periods before, during and after hospitalization. Five themes e...

In contrast to recommendations for young and middle-aged adults, intentional weight loss among older adults remains controversial and is inconsistently advised. Recent research suggests that a higher protein diet can mitigate loss of lean mass during periods of intentional weight loss among older adults with obesity; however, the effects of intentional weight loss on skeletal muscle and bone are not fully understood. The Dairy in the Diet Yields New Approaches for Muscle Optimization (DDYNAMO) t...

This pilot study aimed to examine the feasibility and effectiveness of a 6-months multi-component exercise program combined with twice daily consumption of either rice (RicePro) or whey-based (WheyPro) protein supplements (2 × 20 g of protein) on gait speed, grip strength and physical performance in community-dwelling pre-frail and frail older adults. Secondary outcomes included: frailty score, muscle mass, quality of life, nutritional intake, cognitive performance, depression and physical activ...

This trial examined the effectiveness of an 8-week home meal service on protein and other nutrient intake, physical performance (PP) and health related quality of life (HRQoL) among older people living at home (≥65 years; home care clients, caregivers and care recipients). Participants were randomized into three groups; (1) protein-rich meal, snack, and bread (INT1), (2) regular meal (INT2) and (3) control group. Nutrient intake was assessed with 3-day food diaries, PP with Short Physical Perfor...

We examined the association between dietary potassium intake and all-cause and cause-specific mortality among community-dwelling older adults. Potassium intake was assessed with a food frequency questionnaire administered to 1,363 older adults (mean age 71.0 ± 10.6 years). Cox proportional hazard regressions estimated hazard ratios for sex-specific quintiles of calorie-adjusted potassium in relation to all-cause and cause-specific (cardiovascular disease, CVD, and stroke) mortality, adjusting fo...
This project aimed to determine the feasibility of implementing a dietary intervention in older Veterans participating in an exercise and health promotion program (Gerofit) and whether this intervention could improve self-reported fruit and vegetable (F&V) intake measured by BRFSS and diet quality measured by visual analog scale (0-10 scale). Participation consisted of optional group and individual counseling with a Registered Dietitian (RD). Out of 50 participants approached to participant in t...
