Malnutrition

Further Information & Hand Outs

If you believe you or someone you care for is at risk of malnutrition you should visit your GP. He/she can check for signs of malnourishment and for any conditions that may cause malnutrition.

How is malnutrition treated?

Depending on the cause and severity of your malnutrition, treatment may be carried out at home or in hospital.

Diet is key and the main treatment for people diagnosed with malnutrition is dietary changes. If you are malnourished or at risk of becoming malnourished, we recommend that you visit your GP who will refer you to a Dietitian for individual dietary assessment and advice.
