The vitamin A, E and C nutritional status of 313 non institutionalized elderly people living in a small town and in an agricultural village of North Italy has been evaluated. From results obtained it is possible to say that all the population tested is at low risk for vitamin A deficiency, while 10-20% of people over 70 living in the small town have low levels of vitamin E.

Abstract

The vitamin A, E and C nutritional status of 313 non institutionalized elderly people living in a small town and in an agricultural village of North Italy has been evaluated. From results obtained it is possible to say that all the population tested is at low risk for vitamin A deficiency, while 10-20% of people over 70 living in the small town have low levels of vitamin E. On the contrary, the nutritional status of ascorbic acid, where the levels are inadequate in more than 50% of the population, is worrying.
