As we age, our body deteriorates physically, affecting our ability to balance, the body becomes slow and out of control, easy to fall. Gradually unable to do daily tasks, causing many diseases and high mortality

Cardiovascular function

Cardiovascular health plays an important role in helping the body prevent aging. Physical exercise helps to improve the maximum oxygen absorption by increasing the systolic volume, increasing cardiac output, and the difference in oxygen pressure between arterial and venous blood. In addition, it also helps to enhance glucose tolerance and metabolism, increase insulin sensitivity, help control blood pressure, reduce blood fat, thereby having a positive effect on body structure, reducing body fat.

To ensure the safety of exercise for people with cardiomyopathy, heart valve disease and uncontrolled metabolic disorders, especially for the elderly, it is necessary to periodically check & screen health. Regular evaluation of cardiovascular status is recommended to predict early pathological changes, cardiovascular problems with new symptoms such as recent myocardial infarction, angina pectoris. , uncontrolled arrhythmias, acute heart failure, complete atrioventricular block.

Respiratory function

Lung function also tends to age over time, which shows that the lungs are less elastic, limiting the function of gas exchange.

The ability to absorb oxygen into the arterial blood in the elderly also decreases, affecting the oxygen supply to tissues. Maximum ventilation is clearly reduced in the elderly, reflecting reduced respiratory reserve, less mobile thoracic cavity, creating a large resistance, reducing respiratory efficiency... especially affecting subjects with a history of diseases breathing, smoking...

Therefore, regular exercise, healthy lifestyle changes, appropriate nutrition support improving breathing for the elderly.

Digestive function

What is probably easy to see in the aging process in the digestive system of the elderly is a decrease in intestinal motility, a decrease in gastric secretion, which causes a decrease in nutrient absorption. Decreased peristalsis of the colon prevents food from moving through the rest of the digestive tract and out of the body.

Consequences when the digestive system has problems, it will lead to a decrease in nutritional status, the elderly will be emaciated, exhausted, constipated, or have bowel incontinence.

To overcome the elderly need a diet rich in fiber and adequate ingredients, enough water and regular exercise can help prevent and treat common digestive disorders. For patients who are not alert enough, it is necessary to practice defecation habits.

Function of bones and joints

There are many changes in the aging process with age. The loss of bone mass first takes place in the form of bone calcium loss. The mass of each muscle unit of large muscle groups also decreases over time. Joint fluid decreases, joint degeneration increases with age… As a result, the bone system becomes brittle and weak, osteoporosis and increased risk of fracture in the elderly. Limited mobility due to osteoarthritis, joint pain.

So for a long, healthy, and quality life, you may have to make a few adjustments to your daily routine: Scientific exercise combined with proper nutrition In addition to slowing down the aging process, periodic health check-ups are an effective method to protect your health, assess your current health status for early screening & prevention. many dangerous diseases in the future.
