Recent Findings A systematic search was performed to answer the question “Does the adherence to a Mediterranean diet pattern help individuals older than 65 years having a long and healthy live without physical function limitations?” Summary The search strategy obtained six articles (three were cross-sectional and three longitudinal studies). Two of the studies contained data from non-Mediterranean countries. The Mediterranean diet adherence was measured with different types of a priori defined indexes, and the outcomes of interest were highly diverse, measuring quality of life, or functionality or functional deficits. A higher adherence to the Mediterranean diet pattern increases some measures of physical function, strength performance, or quality of life.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/42212||ISSN:||2196-7865||DOI:||10.1007/s13670-018-0242-4||Source:||Current Geriatrics Reports [ISSN 2196-7865], v. 7 (3), p. 115-124|
