22/10/2015 – 24/10/2015
Dr Nabil Bosco (Nestlé, CH) presented a poster on low-grade inflammation, on behalf of the Nutrition, Immunity and Inflammation Task Force. Please find here the draft poster.
The key messages of the poster are that:
- Low-grade inflammation (LGI) is a disease condition characterised by levels of inflammatory markers slightly above ‘normal’.
- LGI might be detrimental for many tissues and organs or system functions.
- LGI also occurs as a natural consequence of ageing, a process called ‘inflammageing’. Major elderly health complications are associated with LGI.
- Nutritional interventions may help controlling LGI. However, there is no robust evidence linking a reduced LGI and better health and well-being in the elderly.
