Eating more protein as you age

Aging Door County residents may need to add more protein to their diets to avoid health problems. Door County Medical Center Geriatrician Ronald Kodres says as people age into their 60s and 70s their muscles deteriorate. More protein, Kodres says, is required for many as people age. A protein-deficiency leads to potential broken bones. Kodres added not all elderly people need to eat a higher amount of protein but cautioned about not having enough.


Kodres says you should ask your doctor before making any major dietary changes.
