No Weight Loss?

Continued from Page 46

such short-term diet tricks
are not effective long-term
solutions.
Some women seem to act as
if one or several days of
overeating can be starved or
exercised awa,- with a riot of
strenuous a `y. But mod-
eration rather ,,Tian crash pro-
grams are recommended for
long-term fitness and weight
loss. Current thinking from
the professional community
is that one to two pounds is
preferable to greater weight
loss during a one week period.

Cold Weather
Poses Hazard
, For The Elderly

To young people, cold
weather is merely an an-
noyance. But for older citi-
zens, cold weather is a dead-
ly threat.
Hypothermia is an abnor-
mally low internal body tern-
perature — usually 95
degrees or lower. Even
relatively mild cold can cause
the condition in older, at risk
people.
People who are especially
vulnerable include:
those who live alone,
without a phone
people who do not shiver or
react normally to cold
people who are ill and
unable to move around
people taking drugs that
affect the body's ability to
regulate temperature. Those
drugs include phenothiazines,
used to treat anxiety, depres-
sion, nausea and other con-
ditions
patients or people with
"slow" thyroid, strokes,
paralysis, arthritis, Parkin-
son's disease
alcoholics
low-income people who
can't afford high heating bills
or who live in houses with no
heat.
Some signs of hypothermia
include:
indifference to cold. An
elderly person may not shiver
or notice discomfort while
others shiver and put on
sweaters
slurred speech
slow and sometimes ir-
regular heartbeat
sluggishness and confusion
slow, shallow breathing.
If you suspect hypother-
mia, take the person's
temperature. If the ther-
mometer registers 95 degrees
or below, or if it fails to
register a temperature, sum-
mon medical help immediate-
ly. The best way to prevent
hypothermia is to check in on
older persons once or twice a
day, especially during severe
cold snaps.
