Our nutritional solutions for specific medical conditions
Not only will the number of people aged over 60 increase significantly over the coming years, but also the number of people aged over 80. As people age, the incidence of chronic disease rises. Heart disease, hypertension, metabolic abnormalities and neurodegenerative diseases are amongst the chronic conditions that increase in incidence with age, and with them comes the burden of malnutrition.
Malnutrition may increase vulnerability to infection, delayed wound healing, decreased muscle strength and depression, as well as have an effect on outcomes such as the length and frequency of hospital stays and quality of life.
DSM manufactures a wide range of vitamins and other nutrients such as omega 3s and carotenoids that can be used in medical nutrition products that help reduce the risk of malnutrition.
DSM can help you get to market faster and safer with nutrition solutions that work.
