Diet and Exercise: Is It Required?
Dietary advice and support in this cohort is especially important. This was emphasised by Christy et al. (2013). This team highlighted how mailed interventions alone can improve dietary patterns 2 years after follow-up. Home base diet and exercise interventions have been used (Demark Wahnefried 2006, 2007). These measures can be successfully used in this cohort. This can also be supported by introduction of a mailed exercise intervention, as demonstrated by Lastayo (2006). This improved mobility and physical fitness in the older age groups, showing how this can be used as part of an exercise intervention. This support can even be given using a different strategy, such as telephone based support (Skolarius 2010).
