Topic choice : Explain why obesity is undesirable in the elderly and what physiological effects this could have.


However, you must also locate a scholarly article related to your aging discussion question. Your question should be stated in your initial discussion post and answered based on pathophysiological principles and specifically those related to aging. Remember, you should focus on the pathophysiology of the content for your initial  as well as applying your knowledge to Advanced Practice Nursing.


My article choice:

question can arise from this article –  for example Impact of Obesity on Physical Function/Disability
