Weight gain with age may be due to numerous different causes. Excess weight is a contributing factor to many chronic diseases including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. It exacerbates high blood pressure, arthritis, and mood disorders such as depression. It can lead to fatigue, decreased libido, and low self-esteem.
