Body Mass Index (BMI) and Quality of Life in the Elderly

When Betty planned for her golden years, she got her housing ready, her income, even her health care. What she didn't get ready was her actual health.

New studies show that body weight has a big impact on quality of life for people over 65. In a study of more than 7,000 men and women, researchers found that excess body weight was associated with worse overall health for men and women.

Like Betty, females in particular suffered impaired physical ability in doing day to day tasks like climbing stairs or carrying groceries, and more interference with social activities with family and friends due to physical or emotional problems.

And the seniors' quality of life went down as their weight went up. The study subjects who were actually obese reported the poorest quality of life overall.

If you're looking forward to retirement, consider your body along with your bank accounts. A long-term investment in prudent weight management can pay big health dividends in the end.
