Dysphagia is defined as difficulty swallowing.
It is estimated that one in three people over the age of 65, as well as a large number of people in younger cohorts, have difficulty chewing, swallowing or digesting conventional food.
This can be a result of many conditions, including stroke, dementia, or head trauma. Malnutrition, aspiration and choking are common consequences of Dysphagia.
