This book aims to provide a discussion of the entire area of vitamin deficiency in the elderly. The editor explores the concepts of vitamin deficiency and nutrient requirements, technical problems of measuring vitamin intake, the difficulties of interpreting intake measurements, and clinical signs and biochemical measures of vitamin status. The question of the frequency of vitamin deficiency in the elderly population and the evidence that subclinical deficiency affects the quality of life are investigated, and the implications for health policy makers and individual clinicians are considered.
