    Article - En anglais


    - As disability is highly prevalent among older women, is costly, and affects the quality of life, preventable causes of disability must be identified.

    In this study, we investigated the relationship between the body mass index (BMI), weight change, and the onset of disability in older women.


    - Prospective cohort study.


    - The nationally representative US epidemiologic follow-up study of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) I (1971 through 1987).
