In 2020, the U.S. Census Bureau released estimates showing the 65-and-older population has grown rapidly since 2010. The growth of this population contributed to an increase in the national median age from 37.2 years in 2010 to 38.4 in 2019. Within these numbers, women make up a majority percentage. This percentage only continues to grow as they age within this group. This is the fastest rising age group and obesity specialists must be prepared to take care of this population. Additionally, a growing number of patients are seeking bariatric surgery and there is known significant risk of weight gain following surgery. As this post-bariatric surgery population ages, we must also understand how menopause will increase their risk of weight regain after loss. With this knowledge, we can better assist our patients through all stages of their life with weight management.
