Ageing: the role of nutrition

  • 26 April 2024
  • 8.00-10.00am AEST
    10.00am-12:00pm NZST
Hosted by DOCTORS FOR NUTRITION

This Food Vitals webinar will provide GPs with vital information on how an eating pattern focussed on unprocessed, whole plant foods can help patients to prevent, reduce and manage age-related diseases and multimorbidity. They can then use this knowledge to provide effective care and make recommendations regarding diet and lifestyle modifications for their ageing patients. 

The Standard Australian Diet rates high on the Dietary Inflammatory Index (DII) due to the high intake of saturated fat and cholesterol from animal products and processed foods. An inflammatory diet is linked with chronic disease, faster ageing, the development of frailty and Alzheimer’s Disease. Conversely, a diet centred around whole plant foods, containing fibre, phytonutrients and antioxidants, is very anti-inflammatory.  As ageing can be thought of as an inflammatory disease, a whole food plant-based diet can help mitigate the onset of age-related diseases. With currently more than one in three general practice encounters being people aged 65 or older, the pressure on our healthcare system will only continue to rise.

Following a recorded presentation you will have the opportunity to have your questions answered live by Dr Greger.
