the presence of underlying chronic diseases, such as heart disease, kidney disease, liver disease, lung infections psychological problems, such as stress, anxiety, feeling lonely, and so on problems in the oral cavity, one of which is because teeth are no longer intact history of previous diseases that cause difficulty in eating, such as strokes and others
Here are some tips for increasing appetite in the elderly:
