Let's face it: old age is what lies ahead. If you're 40 or 50 or even 60, you might not give much thought to the health challenges of aging. But just as planning for future financial needs is important, so is planning for optimum health. If you are already in this phase you need to take special care of health for being independent. By old age, we mean physical age over 60, your mental age can be anything, younger the mental age lesser the problems! Many problems of old age can be prevented or minimized with a healthy lifestyle and regular exercises.
Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome : About three-fourths of adults aged 60 and older are overweight or obese. Obesity is related to type 2 diabetes & high blood pressure. Women in premenopause and menopause tend to accumulate fat around the waist and hips, The best way to fight it is with increasing exercise & healthy fat intake -- omega-3 fatty acids and unsaturated fats.
Arthritis : Arthritis affects nearly half the elderly population and is a leading cause of disability. Arthritis in the knees is the price we pay for walking upright on two legs. The keys to prevention: avoid overuse, do steady, regular specific exercise which include strength and flexibility training are very essential. And managing your weight is just as essential for joint health as cardiovascular health.
Osteoporosis and Falls : Osteoporosis and low bone mass affect almost 44 million adults age 50 and older, most of them women. In a given year, more than one-third of adults age 65 and older experience a fall. To take care of bone health stop smoking, watch your alcohol intake, get plenty of calcium, and limit foods with high acidic content. Adults need 1,000 to 1,200 milligrams of calcium daily. Vitamin D, "the sunshine vitamin," is also important to at least 800-1,000 units
Weight-bearing exercise also helps to keep bones healthy. Balance exercises improve joint reception and reduce possibility of falls.
