With age, some disorders manifest or develop and impact daily life. Medical monitoring and screening for these conditions will be your best assets for healthy aging!
Often weakened, elderly individuals do not always receive adequate oral health care. However, the stakes are much higher than one might think: painful teeth, faulty dentures, or worn-out prostheses can make eating difficult and lead to dangerous deficiencies. It's important to know that aging leads to reduced saliva production, and the use of certain medications can harm teeth.
Temporary incontinence can be caused by various factors such as constipation, urinary tract infections, alcohol consumption, or certain medications. Urinary leaks can be related to the bladder or the sphincter but also to aging. In any case, it's important to consult a doctor. Indeed, aside from the discomfort it causes, untreated incontinence can eventually lead to an infection. Treatments Treatment options vary depending on the type and cause of incontinence. First, there are pelvic floor muscle exercises or Kegel exercises. There is also behavioral training involving resisting the urge to urinate. Medications can also reduce urinary leakage.
There are several other age-related disorders such as rheumatism, memory loss, prostate problems in men, and menopause-induced issues in women. Only regular medical check-ups will allow you to take action to mitigate these conditions.
