Senior Diseases Can Be Prevented Or Controlled

Senior diseases associated with aging can be prevented or at the very least controlled. As the population of adults aged 65 and older in the U.S. continues to grow, the burden on public health and the health care system will be great.

Although chronic illnesses tend to exact a particularly heavy toll on older adults, poor health is not an inevitable consequence of getting older.

Healthy Lifestyle

Many of the illnesses and disabilities caused by chronic conditions are avoidable by utilizing preventative measures. Adopting a healthy lifestyle is the key(regular exercise, better nutrition habits). Also early detection screening for such things as cancer, diabetes, etc. becomes very important.


Some chronic conditions such as alzheimer's, arthritis, depression, Parkinson's disease, etc. continue to be studied to find effective means of prevention or control. Hydrotherapy in a hot tub would be another example of possible treatment for certain diseases.

For the most part, as I have emphasized throughout this site, regular physical activity remains the cornerstone for a longer, higher quality of life as we age. By exercising and watching your diet, you can defeat senior diseases.
