There could be some damage to the central nervous system but not very severe or the symptoms that Nick exhibits would be more severe. C. Diabetic neuropathies damage peripheral nerves. Which component of the reflex arc is most likely to be damaged in Nick’s situation? The component of the reflex arc that is most likely to be damaged in Nick’s situation would begin at the sensory neuron. Stimuli is still triggering the receptor but the information from the sensory neuron doesn’t continue the arc to the integrating centers to the motor neurons to the effectors which causes the absence of a reflex.

Worksheet 18-1: Case Study—Assessment of the Nutritional Status of the Elderly John, 78 years old, is a sometimes homeless veteran. He is missing many teeth from years of no dental care. John receives a monthly retirement check but he has great difficulty meeting his monthly bills, let alone buying enough food, and this has caused many evictions. When he can afford them, John has his prescriptions filled for a diuretic (for high blood pressure) and a statin (for high cholesterol). John isn’t sure what his current weight is, but he has had to tighten his belt to the last notch over the past eight months.
This will cause loss of feeling in the skin and weakens muscle. Question: Leprosy can affect the skin and Schwann cells of peripheral nerves. Which events of sensation processing are most likely not functioning properly in Sannu’s leprosy? Answer: Generation of nerve impulses is probably not working properly. Sensory neurons conduct impulses from the peripheral nervous system, so when the leprosy affects the Schwann cells of the peripheral nerves it isn’t conducting the impulse to integrate the sensory input.
o Moisture damage to the skin can be caused to the individual due to being unable to cope with or without aids or support. o There is an increased risk of infection. o Individual isolates self due to fear of unable to manage needs. o Cognitive deterioration due to dehydration. o Fearful of loss of dignity.
If this is preferred then to promote their dignity food presented for that function should be laid out.

In other words they might not understand that there is something wrong with them but the behaviours of others might lead them to feeling something is wrong, which causes stress. 1.2)Not eating enough can lead to weight loss and other problems including vulnerability to infection, reduced muscle strength and fatigue. People with dementia may become dehydrated if they are unable to communicate or recognise that they are thirsty, or if they forget to drink.
