Enhancing the management of anorexia of ageing to counteract malnutrition: are physical activity guidelines optimal?

Enhancing the management of anorexia of ageing to counteract malnutrition: are physical activity guidelines optimal?
Enhancing the management of anorexia of ageing to counteract malnutrition: are physical activity guidelines optimal?
Poor appetite in later life—termed “anorexia of ageing”—is acknowledged as a key determinant of age-related malnutrition. While physical activity (PA) is often recommended for increasing drive to eat, these recommendations are not well-evidenced in the older population. In this opinion piece we outline limitations to physical activity recommendations in anorexic older adults. We then discuss current evidence for the relationship between physical activity and appetite amongst younger adults and postulate how this relationship may change in later life, with implications regarding future recommendations and research.

Abstract

Poor appetite in later life—termed “anorexia of ageing”—is acknowledged as a key determinant of age-related malnutrition. While physical activity (PA) is often recommended for increasing drive to eat, these recommendations are not well-evidenced in the older population. In this opinion piece we outline limitations to physical activity recommendations in anorexic older adults. We then discuss current evidence for the relationship between physical activity and appetite amongst younger adults and postulate how this relationship may change in later life, with implications regarding future recommendations and research.
