How important is it for the elderly

How important is it for the elderly

Is the old man at the age of 90 will not give up talking and sex, and “thief” did not die. Roughly half of the old man who is no longer active, or is something wrong with the body, or have no chance or restricted.

Due to the lack of information on the activities of the elderly, Australia Dr Hyde from 1996 to 2009, between the 3 time points for community based 2,783 75-95 Australia men on sexual attitudes and sexual behaviour, as well as physical and social factors that affect their sex survey, and measured their testosterone levels. Survey 2/3 at marriage or long-term sexual partners, 85.9% reporting have had some sexual activity in their life, most people only ever made love with the opposite sex, most people only have 1 sexual partner. 48.8% believe that to some extent but also is an important part of their lives. There are 30.8% people in the past year at least 1 time in sexual life, 857 people, more than half are satisfied with their sex, 43% hope that some more. Awareness and reduce the frequency of sexual activity with increasing age, 75-79 59% of respondents think sex is an important part of life, 39.6% has had sex in the past year and has over 90 years of 20.9% and 11% respectively.

In sexually active older men, almost half said their main reason for this is that the body is out of order, or there is no opportunity or restricted. Other reasons include lack of interest in health issues with their partners. Multiple cross-sectional analysis indicated that the decline in risk activities associated with the following factors:

– Age; – partner interest – your partner’s body limits – osteoporosis;

– Prostate cancer – diabetes; – taking antidepressant drugs;-the use of beta blocking agents.

A longitudinal analysis with similar results, and found that each standard deviation increase in free testosterone with 20% increases the likelihood of sexual activity. But it is not clear whether Testosterone therapy will have a positive effect, especially since the inactive man is the most common cause of health problems. There seem to be a large proportion of the elderly man’s sexual needs are not being met.

Summer beware of psychological heat stroke

Summer beware of psychological heat stroke
Summer, the scorching sun, hot pressing, hot weather so many people eat, sleep instability, resulting in dysfunctional biological clock at the same time, but also easy to cause psychological anxiety, irritability, good temper and other phenomena.
Psychological experts point out that, in fact, people’s emotions and the climate has a close relationship, when temperatures exceed 35 degrees Celsius, sunshine for more than 12 hours, climate change on human emotions significantly affect, resulting in emotional and cognitive behavior disorders.” In addition, high temperature weather led to a general decline in appetite, coupled with poor sleep quality and sweating, will affect the body electrolyte metabolism, thereby affecting the brain nerve activity, so that people’s emotional and behavioral abnormalities, that is, psychological heat stroke phenomenon.
Experts advise, eat light food, when the body sweating for a long time, drink plenty of water at the same time should be appropriate to add salt, drink some soup, a disorder of the nervous system to help prevent electrolyte disorder caused by. Clothing can choose white, light blue, light green color; pay attention to rest, sleep quality, and according to the characteristics of the summer, should adjust their pace of life; irritability when listen to soothing music, relax, meet the unsatisfactory unpleasant things, it is best to calm down and avoid stamp with rage, and temporary withdrawal; usually communicate with friends, so as to alleviate the psychological pressure.

To slow the aging need to start from the protection of the lung

To slow the aging need to start from the protection of the lung
Elderly patients often suffer from multiple organ dysfunction syndrome, multiple organ dysfunction syndrome is the main cause of death in critically ill elderly patients. Because of the occurrence of multiple organ dysfunction in the elderly is two or more than two organs at the same time or the onset of the sequential process similar to the Domino phenomenon, therefore, to identify which is the first of the organs, in place to identify and block the occurrence of organ dysfunction or failure of linkage, as well as the association between the organs, are important.
Earlier has been proposed that multiple organ failure in gastrointestinal or liver is the center of the key organs, a number of studies have shown that, lung is likely to elderly patients with multiple organ dysfunction is not full of initiating organ. The main basis is that with age, lung aging, functional decline, and therefore, the same external stimuli lead to older people’s lung disease than in young and middle-aged serious, difficult to treat, the prognosis is poor. Two is the lung is the only direct contact with the outside world, the important organs, and the external stimulation of the most contact, resulting in a strong inflammatory response, resulting in a greater damage to the important organs of the body. Three is the old people’s immune function is low, the special defense function of the lung. A large number of long-term clinical treatment found that elderly patients with multiple organ dysfunction in the pathogenesis of the disease, pulmonary infection accounted for 75.4%-82.8%. The above characteristics indicate that the lung is the most vulnerable and vulnerable organ in the human body.
So, protect the human body of the lung. Delicate. Organ, can greatly reduce the incidence of senile multiple organ failure, so as to prolong the life of the elderly, improve the health of the elderly.

The more you forget, the more you get.

There is a saying. To live long, often empty in the brain.. This is the golden key to the health and longevity of the elderly, the vicissitudes of life, not to remember, should forget things a lot.

Forget the fame and fortune, especially the old people, don’t look too heavy, to hold. Fame line Shenwaizhiwu, living not bring, bring death. Idea.
Forget their own offspring — Er Sunfu.. Poor world parents heart. Willing to do for the children, horses, meet the eye everywhere. Where there is life, not worry about, in fact,. Their own life. For the children and grandchildren, even if you save a family, once your grandchildren will not live up to our expectations, qingkezhijian squandered.

Forget age – keep the energy. As the saying goes,. People do not think the old, the veteran is not.. People’s physiological calm is objective, but the mental age is different, it reflects the people’s mental state. Some people just over his sixtieth year, continue to imply that their old, distance of life end closer to the fire in psychology is the enemy of good health and longevity.

Forget the hatred – tolerance of the things to the people. Because a person planted the seeds of hatred, they want to revenge, Sheng to do everything possible to think of revenge methods, such as the opportunity, so that people can not rest in peace.

Forget to get angry – gas is too sick to regret. If a hit or think of angry, bristle, unable to control their emotions, often makes the heart beat faster, blood pressure, blood jam, Yun to will breathed his last and died.

Forget to worry – don’t let the patient get wrapped up. The old people in sorrow, will make the body’s immunity is greatly reduced, not only will make the body organs of the body to secrete function disorders, activity disorders, and will provide favorable conditions for the invasion of the outside world. Long time of sorrow, will lead to diseases, will eventually die.

Forget to regret – past let it go. Everything that makes one regret, has become history with the passing years. Learn to be generous, it is necessary to get up, put it down, total to want to regret things, not only did not what benefits, and can only make people sad, sad, La Tortura, with the passing of time will be a detriment to health.

Forget to die. Who lives in life without death.. Don’t be old. Death. Keep in mind, don’t afraid of death. All day long to figure it out on my own is not suffering from any disease, a little discomfort, suspicious, holding this fragile heart, will only make the body lack of proper resistance, to hasten death.

Characteristics of the disease in the elderly

Because of the special nature of the old people’s physiology and pathology, the old people have their own special characteristics, including the following:
(1) at the same time, a variety of diseases
An old man with a variety of diseases at the same time. According to statistics, the elderly average at the same time with 4 to 6 kinds of diseases or more, such as an old man can also suffer from hypertension, coronary heart disease, hyperlipidemia and carotid push disease, mild cataract, lumbar muscle strain etc.. Although these diseases exist at the same time in the human body, but there is always a priority, there must be a 1 ~ 2 kinds of disease, the harm of, Yun to the risk of fatal.

2) disease complications

When complications when suffering from a particular disease, complicated byother illnesses on the basis of the disease. Due to the decrease of immunefunction in the elderly, poor resistance to external microorganisms andother exciting combat capability is weak, the prevalence in the elderly thanthe young are more susceptible to complications. For example old stroke,coma, after surgery or fracture are complicated by pneumonia.

(3) water and electrolyte disturbance

Normally the body needs a certain amount of water and essentialelectrolytes, such as potassium, sodium, and other, to meet metabolic needsand balance. Due to the intracellular fluid of the body of the elderlyreduces cell degeneration, organ atrophy if fever or vomiting, diarrhea,very prone to water and electrolyte disturbances.

(4) symptoms are not typical, not obvious
The elderly due to reduced body morphology and function, reaction of weakened, sensitive to the reaction of pain and disease in children and young people does not like. As in adolescence, when the high fever reaction in the elderly due to decreased reaction performance for low fever or fever, and if the elderly patients with my infarction, rarely in the middle-aged people with severe chest pain, but almost no pain or only show a slight sense of chest tightness. Therefore, the elderly are often not clearly explain their pain and discomfort, or vague expression.
(5) the occurrence of a mental disorder or mental disorder
Due to the elderly patients with atherosclerosis, insufficient blood supply to the brain, when infection, fever, dehydration, arrhythmia, etc., prone to lethargy, delirium, speak nonsense, delirious to coma and other symptoms, which is due to cerebral hypoxia. Some diseases may be the main manifestation of sudden coma.
(6) the onset of the disease is fast and prone to systemic failure.
The old people’s internal organs reserve function is low, once the illness, the disease is easy to deteriorate rapidly. This is due to the original state of the balance of some organs and functions of rapid failure and involves multiple organ damage.

(7) after the illness, recovery is slow and poor
Due to the low metabolic rate of the elderly, the function of tissue and organ regeneration ability is poor, so, after the illness often not easy to recover, or to recover slowly, the base to many diseases also left sequelae, often need to take rehabilitation measures.
(8) over reliance on drugs
Old people have a disease, which is an inertial reaction. The use of old people is a very complicated problem. Improper use of drugs, such as a doctor for a long time frequently to the patient to use a certain drug, the formation of the patient’s tolerance to a drug, drug misuse for the patient’s own reasons for the patient often not to the patient’s condition to use excessive drugs, resulting in drug resistance, drug abuse. Whether drug abuse, or drug abuse, can cause drug dependence.
(9) a greater response to the drug
Elderly patients, such as excessive or improper dosage, with the elderly themselves to the drug reaction, it is easy to drug toxicity reaction, and even because of drug reactions and increase the disease, or to make health threatened.

The dusk years old –Constantly ill, and relapse

1. the physical characteristics of the elderly
Aging is a process that life is bound to experience, and it is the law of life. Aging can be divided into two types of physiological and pathological aging. Physiological aging refers to the physiological degeneration of the human body in the mature period. This is the general rule of biology. This is the reason that the human body has the internal or external causes, and the human body has pathological changes. Early’. Due to physiological and pathological aging, people to the elderly in physiology will show the following characteristics.
(1) decreased metabolic function
Because of the reduction of the metabolic function, the energy consumption of the basic life activities decreased, and the decomposition metabolism was more than that of the synthetic metabolism.

(2) decline in function of digestion
Digestive function with age and have different degrees of decline, gastrointestinal motility and emptying slow down, food in the intestines by bacteria fermentation to produce gas, often caused by abdominal full. And because of the food flow through the colon to slow down the rate of moisture absorption over, coupled with rectal hypotonia, easy to constipation and rectal prolapse. The elderly often due to loss of teeth, chewing ineffective, resulting in the digestive gland atrophy, reduced gastric acidity, pepsin, reduced secretion of digestive juice, on the digestion of nutrients reduced ability to absorb, prone to digestive dysfunction.

(3) the function of the liver and gallbladder
Liver weight loss, liver cell enzyme activity, detoxification function and metabolic function are all decreased. Narrowing the elderly with gallbladder, reduce the elastic, bile storage for a long time and concentrated, easy to form stones or lead to cholecystitis, thus it needs to pay attention to the quality of the diet, to prevent “mouth”, “cancer from the mouth into.”

(4) kidney weight loss
From the age of 30, the weight per 10 years of kidney units decreased by 10%, and the capacity of the kidney was decreased. The function of the kidney to remove the metabolic wastes, concentrate the urine and the absorption of the kidney has declined. Therefore, dietary protein must be moderate.

(5) cardiac dysfunction
The heart is gradually reduced with the increase of age weight, myocardial contractility, discharge of blood is reduced, resulting in blood flow to various organs and tissues of oxygen supply is influenced. Coronary atherosclerosis, the heart blood deficiency. Decreased blood vessel elasticity, the role of the regulation of blood pressure, easy to make blood pressure increased, become the important risk factors for the occurrence of Nao Zuzhong, coronary heart disease, heart failure.

(6) endocrine disorders
Endocrine hormone imbalance, resulting in the reduction of organic matter in the bone, the inorganic matter over calm, osteoporosis, prone to fracture. Pancreatic islet function, insulin secretion decreased, glucose tolerance decreased, the incidence of diabetes increased. Decreased thyroid function, decreased metabolic rate, reduced energy consumption. Hormone imbalance, stress ability.

(7) sensory organ passivation
Sensory organs, such as vision loss, dark adaptation ability to reduce the ability to adjust the lens adjustment, appear. Presbyopia. Around the cornea, “elderly people in the park is easy to occur, glaucoma. Smell and taste buds cells reduce,taste, hearing loss.

(8) immune system function decline
Cancer cells, bacteria, viruses, etc. to free activity and proliferation, thereby increasing the risk of infection and cancer of the elderly. Therefore, the activation and rejuvenation of immune cells, is an important part of aging, rejuvenation.

Feeling stress, irritability, stress, anxiety is a natural thing, everyone can occur at any time. But for many people, the anxiety may be chronic and severe, can lead to fear, not confidence, and tachycardia caused by sudden discomfort, sweating and shaking. Strong, sustained lead to job anxiety to panic and a sense of impotence. You can use food to relieve the State of tension, anxiety, certain foods and beverages can act as a sedative or anxiety agent, cause the brain to calm or excitement.

Alcohol can cause anxiety
Drinking and anxiety often occur simultaneously, but people often drink to clear anxiety, can you or some of the more sensitive and often heavy drinkers who quit drinking can eliminate the pathological anxiety. Dr UDE stated, many patients even drinking a small amount of alcohol can also cause panic in 6-12 hours or frequent sense of fear. After the alcohol is removed, the symptoms disappeared, Dr UDE calls this concept as “small withdrawal syndrome.” Many experts speculate that panic patients can only drink very little alcohol, they drank a small amount of wine will be GA normal drink wine, get the same brain neurotransmitter activity.



Regardless of the circumstances, Dr Mudd’s proposal does not apply any panic patients should stop drinking or drink no more than a day 1-2 cup, to see if alcohol panics. He said if you see very small amounts can cause anxiety or panic, then you should complete abstinence. Judith MIT · Dr Altman says, choosing the right foods, the right amount, at the right time, the effect will be as effective as a sedative. 53-7O grams of sugar (equivalent to 2 tablespoons half sugar) can lead to formation of 5-HT, and 5-HT can in less than 20 minutes reduce or ease focus of child abuse.
