Résumé :

The high prevalance of obesity in people up to age 80 makes this an essential issue in our Clinics in Geriatric Medicine series. Obesity contributes to poor mobility and various diseases such as Diabetes Mellitus, Syndrome X, Hypertension and Heart Disease. The authors for this issue provide information on dietary management, exercise, the role of pharmacologic strategies in weight management and functional decline in the elderly. The issue places an importance on the need to clinically assess and manage geriatric overweight and obese patients to improve their function.
