A report, published by King’s College London Global Observatory for Ageing and Dementia Care, highlights that under-nutrition is a major problem among people with dementia, and stresses the importance of recognizing nutrition as a potential key factor in the wellbeing of people with dementia.

Research reviewed in the report finds that 20-45% of those with dementia in the community experience clinically significant weight loss over one year.
