What is Dysphagia? Dysphagia is the medical term for difficulties with swallowing. Some people will struggle to swallow certain types of foods or liquids, while some people cannot swallow at all. Dysphagia is usually caused by another health condition, such as stroke or dementia. Often elderly people are more at risk of developing dysphagia, as are people with learning disabilities. The International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation (IDDSI) Care homes are being encouraged to move to use the International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative (IDDSI).
