Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Advances in medical care allow us to live longer, but to enjoy life we need to stay healthy. Completely revised and updated, Living Well presents a thorough but manageable program for keeping in good mental and physical shape as we grow older. In Part I, Dr. James Fries includes the most up-to-date medical information about how many diseases associated with aging-such as osteoarthritis, diabetes, and atherosclerosis-can be avoided or put off with the latest medication and alternative treatment options. Part II addresses many other challenges that people in their middle and later years face-from planning for retirement, to keeping your mind active, to maintaining a healthy sex life, to writing a will. Finally, Part III provides easy-to-use decision charts- on everything from hip pain to incontinence to diet and exercise-that quickly help determine whether professional intervention is necessary or whether home treatment will suffice. Comprehensive and accessible, Living Well is the essential reference for promoting a long, happy, and healthy life.
