The delivery of effective medical and psychiatric treatments in later life can be complicated by the presence of multiple co-occurring conditions. Three such conditions—obesity, diabetes and dementia—co-occur in older adults more frequently than can be expected by chance. While studies have demonstrated that diabetes, high blood pressure and high body mass index in midlife predict dementia in late life, in late...
