Is losing weight just a normal part of getting older?

Is losing weight just a normal part of getting older?

Unplanned weight loss is not a normal part of the ageing process, and if it is not spotted or treated it can be a sign of malnutrition. Some common signs to watch out for are:

  • clothes, dentures, belts or jewellery becoming loose

  • tiredness and changes in mood

  • a loss of appetite or a disinterest in food and/or fluids

Knowing what signs to watch out for and following some simple steps to eating well can help. More information on this subject is available on our malnutrition page.
