Exercise, Bodyweight and Weight Loss

In addition, these patients are at risk for weight loss, cardiovascular disease (CVD), type 2 diabetes mellitus and CVD risk factors.

This is particularly relevant as AD and/or chronic pain, such as COPD or stroke, are risk factors for AD. With over 500 000 patients, patients at high risk for any of these diseases also need exercise. Exercise has been associated with significantly shortened mortality in people with pre- and post- AD in the last 4 decades, with 1 – 3% mortality per year.

Adequate exercise for the treatment of AD and/or chronic pain is necessary to control some of the key chronic cardiovascular risk factors, and it is also likely that exercise may be an important intervention to reduce risk of stroke, COPD or mortality.
