  • Overview

    Weight loss, especially among older patients, can be a key indicator of other health problems. How much weight loss is safe, and at what point should physicians address any potential underlying causes of weight loss, including nutritional deficiencies? What are the most common symptoms of dehydration, which can be even more challenging to recognize than nutritional deficits? Join host Dr. Eric Tangalos as he reviews these and other questions with Dr. John Morley, the Dammert Professor of Gerontology at Saint Louis University Medical Center.
