Prprtin Prcess Of the Medicare ppulatin, 37 percent are verweight, and 18 percent are bese. Between 1991 and 1998, the prevalence f besity amng persns age increased by 45 percent (American Obesity Assciatin). Accrding t a 1998 survey, nly 52 percent f adults age 50 r lder reprted being asked during rutine medical check-ups abut physical activity r exercise. The likelihd f being asked abut exercise during a rutine check-up declined with age (Center fr the Advancement f Health, 2004). Clinical Recmmendatin Statement Elderly patients with unintentinal weight lss are at higher risk fr infectin, depressin and death. In ne study it was fund that a BMI f less than 22 kg per m2 in wmen and less than 23.5 in men is assciated with increased mrtality. In anther study it was fund that the ptimal BMI in the elderly is 24 t 29 kg per m2. (Huffman, G. B., Evaluatin and Treatment f Unintentinal Weight Lss in the Elderly, American Family Physician, 2002 Feb, 4: ) The USPSTF (2009) recmmends that clinicians screen all adult patients fr besity and ffer intensive cunseling and behaviral interventins t prmte sustained weight lss fr bese adults. (Level f Evidence = B, USPSTF) The clinical guideline fr besity recmmends assessment f BMI at each encunter (Natinal Heart, Lung and Bld Institute). Management f Obesity indicates that the bdy mass index shuld be calculated at least annually fr screening and as needed fr management (The Institute fr Clinical Systems Imprvement s 2009 Guideline fr Preventin and Management f Obesity).
