Objectives: Both excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) and nutritional deficiencies are common and can cause similar negative consequences, such as falls, and cognitive impairment in older adults, but there is no study investigating the relationship between the two. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between malnutrition/micronutrient deficiency and EDS in patients with and without dementia.
