Those with a body mass index of 25.0 to <30 are considered overweight and at-risk for obesity (CDC, 2019).42.8% of middle-aged adults in the U.S. are obese.For patients who are already obese, the likelihood that they are getting enough physical activity is low. When developing a health promotion plan, the nurse should include the patient in formulating that plan. Activities should be based upon patient’s current level of fitness. It is not realistic that someone who is already obese would be able to go out and run a mile every day. The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommends starting with low expectations and slowly increasing physical activity as tolerance is built (Department of Health and Human Services, 2018). Activities such as swimming, biking, walking, playing sports and even gardening are good ways to start. If someone’s current health state or physical fitness does not allow for much exercise, it is important to remind them that any activity is better than none. They can start as low as they need to, once their small goals are attained, they move on to bigger ones. They should continue doing this until they can meet the recommendations for physical activity. 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity is the recommended amount of physical activity for adults (CDC, 2020). Moderate-intensity aerobic activity is any activity that causes an increase in heart rate. Allowing for patient to slowly increase activity over time is a good approach to increase their cooperation.Diabetes Mellitus Type II- Diabetes is a chronic disease in which your body either does not produce enough insulin which is Type I, or your body’s cells have become resistant to insulin which is Type II. The most common form of Diabetes is Type II. 90-95% of Diabetics are Type II (CDC, 2019).9.4% of people in the U.S. have Diabetes, 33.9% have prediabetes.One of the leading risk factors for Type II Diabetes is Obesity. Given that, recommendations the nurse should make for activity to prevent Diabetes Type II are the same as those to someone who is obese. One difference would be the education needed regarding blood sugars. Patient’s with diabetes need to be educated on the effects exercise can have on blood sugar levels and the need to monitor levels more closely when increasing activity levels in order to prevent hypoglycemic episodes. This is extremely important if the patient is utilizing insulin. They may need to plan to exercise during specific times of day depending on how it effects their blood sugar levels (Colberg, 2008).ReferencesCenters for Disease Control (CDC). (2019, December 23).
