MOSCOW, October 1 – Novosti. Dairy products are useful, they contain a sufficient amount of protein that is well absorbed, but in old age it is recommended to reduce their fat content, Nadezhda Runikhina, chief freelance geriatric specialist of the Moscow Department of Health, told Novosti on the Day of the Elderly.
“Dairy products are not contraindicated in old age, we make restrictions only on the high fat content of dairy products, give recommendations for reducing the fat content of dairy products. Dairy products are an excellent food product, with enough protein that is well absorbed, and therefore, if a person likes and uses dairy products, they, of course, can be included in the daily diet of an elderly person,” said Runikhina.
The doctor noted that with individual intolerance to dairy products, they are not indicated for a person, but, as a rule, at this age, patients already have life experience and know which products are suitable for them.
