For the middle-aged adult, exercise can reduce the risk of various health problems. Choose three health issues that regular physical exercise and activity can help prevent and manage. Discuss the prevalence of each of these health problems in society today. Describe measures that you would take as a nurse to assist clients with health promotion measures to incorporate exercise and physical activity into their lives. Include the kind of activities you would recommend, the amount of exercise, and the approach you would use to gain cooperation from the client. Support your response with evidence-based literature. Physical exercise is very important, and can prevent many diseases from occurring, including obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, and heart disease. According to the CDC (2017), in 2015, 1.5 million people were diagnosed with diabetes, and over half of them were adults 45-64 years old. Type 2 diabetes is associated with many risk factors, such as smoking, obesity, physical inactivity, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. In 2014, diabetes accounted for 7.2 million hospital stays.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
