Expatriate medical insurance policyholders might be interested to learn that one in five British over-50s lie to their doctors about their lifestyles.
Research from Saga revealed that 22 per cent of those aged over 50 would not tell the truth about how much alcohol they drink if their healthcare professional asked them, while 15 per cent would fib about their diet.
Some 18 per cent of women and 15 per cent of men would also avoid the truth over how much exercise they do, the results show.
More worryingly, five per cent of people would lie about the number of cigarettes they smoke, which could affect their overseas health insurance policy.
Ros Altmann, general-director of the Saga Group, commented: "It seems a shame that people are not comfortable being honest about health and lifestyle issues, even with their GP.
"The fantastic medical advances of recent years should enable the over-50s to stay fit and healthy so they can enjoy extra leisure time as they come up to and enter retirement."
