Dr. David Podkameni
During this stressful Covid time, most of us know someone who has gained weight over the past 18 months.
While the basics of managing weight still apply to senior adults, eat less move more, we tend to gain weight for different reasons and in different ways. And because many chronic illnesses develop in old age, it can be especially important to avoid being overweight - and especially obese - as we approach the senior years.
Dr Podkameni will offer insight on the importance of maintaining an ideal weight as we grow older and options for losing weight despite of the number on the scale.
