Home-delivered Between-Meal Snacks for Fragile Elderly People

Publikation: Konferencebidrag uden forlag/tidsskriftPosterFormidling

Abstract

This study suggests that providing fragile elderly people living at home with BMS in addition to main meals may contribute to prevent weight loss although a larger sample size is required to document a statistically significant effect. The weight gained was presumably due to an increased fat mass. This is somewhat in contradiction to their increased handgrip strength suggesting an improved level of physical performance. The increased handgrip may also indicate an improved nutritional status. However, the observed changes can also be attributed to the use of similar but not identical groups of elderly in the study design.
