Unit 4222-366 (DEM 302) Outcome 1 1. Describe how cognitive, functional and emotional changes associated with dementia can affect eating, drinking and nutrition. Firstly I will look at cognitive in reference to eating, drinking and nutrition. Some people with dementia can suffer from clinical depression and this would be a cognitive change, as an affect of depression the appetite of an individual will be affected and this may lead to someone having a small or no appetite and under eating this may lead to malnutrition and dehydration, or someone having an increase appetite which will cause over eating and may lead to someone gaining weight or becoming obese which carries many health conditions. Secondly, functional changes that may occur with someone with dementia is that they may have had a stroke or have weakness in using limbs which would affect them using utensils such as a knife and fork for instance not having the strength to lift the fork to their mouth.
Failure to do so results in their immune system producing antibodies which attacks the lining of their bowel causing them to have abdominal pains, constipation/diarrhoea, bloating, difficulty in gaining weight in childhood or maintaining weight in adulthood and anaemia. Because it affects the way their body can absorb nutrients it can also lead to osteoporosis and increase their risk of bowel cancer. Some foods can be bought that are labelled ‘gluten free’ but tend to be more expensive. • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is the term used to describe a condition when on inspection of the bowel everything seems normal, but the person suffers with symptoms like abdominal pain, flatulence, bloating and constipation/diarrhoea. The person may want to keep a food diary to help discover which foods make their condition worse and avoid them in the future.
Dying to be Thin Melanie Hogan HCA 415 Professor Clark April 15, 2013 Dying to be Thin Living in a society that is infatuated with being thin and sex appeal, it is obvious why eating disorders are so prominent in the United States. Food- related disorders including Bulimia, binge eating, and food phobias are becoming more common, but the leading eating disorder in the United States is Anorexia Nervosa (Anorexia for short). Anorexia is a severe eating disorder, in which an individual drastically reduces their calorie intake to the point of starvation. Although, Anorexia can affect anyone of any color at any time in their life, its primary target is adolescent and young adult females. The cause of this disorder is unknown, but people
They claim giving up over eating can lead to picking up another addiction. This is called “addiction transfer”. If someone eats due to depression or loneliness, but fails to get treated for their issue, they could switch to excessive drinking or gambling. For example, Carnie Wilson (2006), a much publicized Bypass patient states, “I am here to get the message out. After you have had this surgery, you need to focus on what is in your head.” She continues to explain it is not possible to fix the problems before the operation, and therapy is needed after to deal with the root of the problem.

In paragraph nine “Don’t Eat the Flan”, Critser mentioned that “Telling people to not eat too much food is counterproductive. Worse, it leads to ‘stigmatization’, which can lead to eating disorders, low self-esteem, and bad body image. Though the consequences of being overweight, numerous and well documented, are dangerous, little if any evidence supports the notion that it is dangerous to stigmatize unhealthy behavior.” In the physical, being overweight will cause many kinds of disease, such as endocrine disorders, diabetes, and heart disease. While along a search says that the top three causes of death in the United State are currently cerebrovascular disease, cancer, and heart disease; obesity seems push us closer to death. It is dangerous, even people have been helped out of the obesity; the obesity will leave traces on their body.
Unit 41 Understand and Meet the Nutritional Requirements of Individuals with Dementia 1.1 Cognitive behaviour is dysfunctional emotions and behaviours that is caused by dis-functioning of the brain. Dementia is cause by a section of the brain being affected by the cells dying. This will affect, the memory and all that we have learnt.
