Oral Nutritional Supplements (ONS) to support the dietary needs of older patients

Author : Ezekiel Wong Toh Yoon, Yukiko Endo, Haruna Nakamura, Chie Mihara and Hirohiko Murata


As older patients tend to eat less and their bodies become more catabolic in nature, the nutritional status of these patients usually decrease with age [1, 2]. Nutrition support is vital when it comes to caring for hospitalized older patients because when their nutritional status is compromised, this will result in higher comorbidities, increase length of hospital stay and higher mortality. In a superaging society like Japan, where more than 25% of the population are more than 65 years old, nutrition support can be challenging as it is not easy to achieve adequate oral intake in these older patients. Therefore, the use of oral nutritional supplements (ONS) plays an important role in the nutrition support of hospitalized older patients. Key words: Oral Nutritional Supplements, Nutrition Support, Aging Society.
