What Foods Should Not be Eaten by the Elderly – The Answer of a Gastroenterologist

The older a person is, the harder it is for them to cope with food digestion, says gastroenterologist Nuria Dianova. That’s why you need to carefully monitor your diet.

An elderly person should exclude certain foods from their diet in order not to harm their health and not to provoke an exacerbation of existing diseases. This was told by a well-known nutritionist and gastroenterologist Nuria Dianova.

“The older a person is, the harder it is for them to cope with food digestion. This is especially true for certain foods, so, according to the nutritionist, it is better for the elderly to give up industrial semi-finished products that contain a lot of additives and flavor enhancers.

“Due to slower metabolism, overweight, heart disease or diabetes, ready-made semi-finished products should be used minimally, preferring to cook food yourself, it will be better food,” Dianova advised.

According to the doctor, you should try to consume canned food as little as possible. And preferably only in the morning. This is especially true for people with overweight, have hypertension, and have diabetes. You should also limit your consumption of red meat and give preference to fish and poultry, which are easier to digest.
