Abstract: Weight loss and cholesterol lowering in the elderly remains a controversial issue. Obesity is considered to be problematic as a result of associated dyslipidemia, cardiovascular disease and mortality. Diet, exercise, medication and laparoscopic gastric banding all demonstrate important potential for achieving safe weight loss and cholesterol lowering in the elderly. This evidence, however, remains minimal and a case specific approach is recommended until more robust guidelines can be developed.
