Nutrition For Dysphagia

Dysphagia is the inability to swallow. People with dysphagia cannot move food or liquids from their lips to their stomachs while chewing or swallowing. Dysphagia is a condition, not a disease, that can result from various conditions, diseases, accidents, or treatments, including, but not limited to, stroke, cancer treatments, head and neck injuries, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease, and dementia. 

The nerves and muscles in the mouth and throat may weaken or become paralyzed due to these illnesses and treatments, making it challenging for a person to effectively chew, move their food around in their mouth, and swallow.

Elderly people who are otherwise healthy and have no illnesses or disorders might also develop dysphagia. For instance, tooth loss and muscular atrophy (in the cheeks and tongue) are common in the elderly and might impair chewing. They may also have less saliva production. Many drugs have undesirable side effects, like dry mouth or decreased cognition. 

Finally, aging can lead to decreased nerve function in the mouth, which can impair one’s ability to taste, feel the texture, or sense the temperature of food. All of these elements may contribute to improper chewing and swallowing, which would typically lead to dysphagia.

A Breakdown Of Dysphagia Diet

A diet for dysphagia has four levels:

Level 1: This is the diet level for pureed foods. This is the lowest category and is appropriate for people with mild to severe dysphagia.

Level 2: You can eat moist meals with little chewing, such as peanut butter, soft scrambled eggs, gravy with ground beef, etc.

Level 3: You can eat soft-solid foods that take a little longer to chew than level 2 foods. Easy-to-cut fruits and vegetables, as well as soft meat cuts, are good eats.

Level 4: You can eat any food at this diet stage, but you should still exercise caution.

At Plant Sumo, we know how crucial food safety is to the well-being of people with dysphagia. We want to assist you by providing delectable meals that are simple to swallow for yourself or someone else with dysphagia.
