The loss of appetite after an illness, or even in general, is associated with sickness within all systems of the body. At such a time, the body craves optimum nutrition that may help to gain its strength back. Typically, the weakness of the body is the most severe in the early stages of an acute illness and resolves as the condition improves. Despite its transient nature, Anorexia (loss of appetite) can lead to under nutrition and significant weight loss, if severe or prolonged.

Acute illness is characterised by a spontaneous decrease in food intake despite an increased need for energy and nutrients for systemic inflammatory responses.

Risk of under nutrition leads to weakness and can delay recovery from illness and/or surgery.

People in such situation need dietary advice to maximise nutritional intake and oral nutritional supplements (ONS) to complement dietary strategies in order to support individuals to meet their nutritional requirements.
