Obesity is becoming a serious epidemic in the United States, and it’s estimated that if current trends continue, by 2030 nearly half of all adults in the U.S. will be obese. Prevalence rates of obesity are steadily increasing in both men and women and some of the highest rates are seen in post-menopausal women. Obesity carries an increased risk for a variety of medical conditions and death rates of several types of cancer increase in obese women. The topic for this podcast is obesity in women and our guest is women’s health expert, Ekta Kapoor, M.B.B.S., from the Mayo Clinic. We’ll discuss reasons women tend to develop obesity in middle age, the risks associated with the type of obesity that occurs following menopause and effective strategies to manage weight gain with aging in women.
