Look for issues that can increase the risk of malnutrition

Small changes in habits can have, over time, a large impact on the amount and quality of nutrition people receive from their diet. Look out for issues such as health and dental problems, medications that interfere with appetite or cause nausea, living alone (social isolation), and mental problems such as depression. These factors can lead to an increased risk of malnutrition.
