AGING CONDITIONS

Whilst we all age in different ways and at different rates, according to the choices we make in our earlier years, there are certain conditions which are commonly associated with aging.

The Census Bureau estimates that 7,918 will turn 60 each day in 2006 — the equivalent of 330 every hour. By 2025 it is estimated over one billion people worldwide will be over the age of 65, many of whom will be affected by age-related diseases.

As we get older, it is not just our bodies that don’t work as well. Almost half of older adults have high blood pressure and more than a third have arthritis and heart disease.

Mental health is equally as important. Surveys suggest elderly people find it harder to maintain a positive outlook on life and it’s estimated 10-15% of people over 65 suffer from depression.

These include:

 

Managing Age Related Conditions

Many age related conditions can be prevented with correct diet and exercise. Many older people do not realise that their nutritional requirements change with age, and that the bodies ability to absorb some nutrients decreases.

For example, nutrients needed in greater amounts include vitamin B-12, vitamin D and vitamin B-6. As we age, the food form of vitamin B-12 is less well-absorbed than the synthetic form. A multivitamin containing at least 2.4 micrograms is recommended for adults older than 60.

Many conditions can be affected by the foods we eat and the amount of weight we carry. Losing as little as 10 pounds can decrease blood pressure, help relieve symptoms of knee arthritis and lower cholesterol.

The common saying "Use it or lose it” holds true. We need to use our muscles, bones, brain, heart and gut to keep healthy.
