Obesity, Lack of Insurance Take Toll on Young Americans
Date:2/19/2009

36 percent of adults ages 45 to 54.
  • Within the same time frame, cholesterol-lowering drugs helped reduce the proportion of adults with high cholesterol to 16 percent. Women aged 55 and older are much more likely than men in that age group to have high cholesterol.
  • About 25 percent of adults aged 60 and older had diabetes in 2003-06.
  • While not increasing as rapidly as in the past decade, obesity rates remain high. More than a third of adults age 20 and older were obese in 2005-2006.
