Maintaining a healthy weight and diet is important for healthy aging. As you age, your body chemistry changes, especially when your physical activity decreases. Over time, if you eat and drink more calories than your body uses for physical activity and daily living, your body may store the extra calories leading to weight gain. Weight gain may lead to overweight and obesity, which increase risk for type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, kidney disease, fatty liver disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia.

Pressure ulcers (also known as pressure sores or bedsores) “are areas of damaged skin caused by staying in one position for too long,” according to MedlinePlus. Bedsores commonly form when the blood supply to an area of the body is slowed or stopped and when the bones (such as ankle, back, elbow, heel, and hip bones) become close to the skin. When blood supply is reduced, the skin in the affected area dies, resulting in an open crater or ulcer. People at risk for developing bedsores include those who are bedridden, those who use a wheelchair, or those who are physically unable to move or change their position. Other causes may including having a disease that affects blood flow, having fragile skin, or living with incontinence. “Pressure sores can cause serious infections, some of which are life-threatening,” according to MedlinePlus.

“Approximately one in three people in the United States between the ages of 65 and 74 has hearing loss, and nearly half of those older than 75 have difficulty hearing,” according to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD). “Having trouble hearing can make it hard to understand and follow a doctor's advice, respond to warnings, and hear phones, doorbells, and smoke alarms. Hearing loss can also make it hard to enjoy talking with family and friends, leading to feelings of isolation.”

June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month – are you taking care of your brain health? According to the Alzheimer’s Association, regular exercise and a healthy diet can help reduce your risk of dementia. “Dementia is not a specific disease. It's an overall term that describes a group of symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills severe enough to reduce a person's ability to perform everyday activities. Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60 to 80 percent of cases. Vascular dementia, which occurs after a stroke, is the second most common dementia type. But there are many other conditions that can cause symptoms of dementia, including some that are reversible, such as thyroid problems and vitamin deficiencies,” according to the Alzheimer’s Association.

January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month. Did you know that glaucoma is a leading cause of vision loss and blindness in the United States? Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions or diseases that damage the optic nerve, according to the Mayo Clinic. Glaucoma usually occurs when the fluid pressure inside the eyes slowly rises, therefore damaging the optic nerve, according to MedlinePlus. “This internal fluid normally drains out through a tissue called the trabecular meshwork at the angle where the iris and cornea meet,” according to Mayo Clinic. “When fluid is overproduced or the drainage system doesn't work properly, the fluid can't flow out at its normal rate and eye pressure increases.”

Dry mouth, also called xerostomia, is the condition of not having enough saliva to keep the mouth wet, according to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.

It moistens and breaks down food, washes away food particles from the teeth and gums, and helps people with swallowing, according to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research. In addition, saliva contains minerals such as calcium and phosphate that help keep teeth strong and fight tooth decay.
