As we get older Age effect all element of the body’s system and can have detrimental effects on the respiratory cardiovascular and renal system. our respiratory muscles weaken and the patient’s vital capacity and lung compliance decreases due to the patient’s ability to fill his lungs with air and as well as reduces the surface tension (Seeley, Stephens and Tate 2002). As the alveoli become stretched and less compliant the residual volume and amount of dead space will increase, therefore this will impede on ability of gas exchange between the atmosphere and tissues cells. Blood pressure, capillary permeability and osmosis will affect movement of fluid within the circulatory system therefore can lead to extravascular accumulation of fluids within the tissues and pulmonary alveoli (Seeley, Stephens and Tate 2002). Kidney size decreases, blood flow to the kidneys are effected and decreased the ability for the kidney to adsorb and secrete toxin for the circulatory system can be problematic, with the kidney not making enough concentration of urine this may increase the chances of the patient becoming dehydrated (Seeley, Stephens and Tate 2002).Mr
The ability of the body to move, function, receive, and or give diminishes with age. The older generation tends to lose flexibility, strength and often basic motor functioning for everyday activities. Many bone degradation illnesses become prominent in the older generation because of the lack of functioning the muscles possess. Major bone degeneration illnesses that can arise are osteoporosis, arthritis, and the inability of mobile functioning. Osteoporosis, is a bone disease which emphasizes a decrease in bone mass.
This means your brain requires a constant supply of fuel. What you eat directly affects the structure and function of your brain and, ultimately, your mood. Eating high-quality foods that contain lots of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants nourishes the brain and protects it from stress. If your brain is deprived of nutrition; consequences are to be expected. There are studies that shows the correlation between what you eat, how you feel and how a person ultimately
Dysthymic disorder is a slow but long-term form of depression (Dysthymia). While suffering from the disease, the patient becomes hopeless.

Major symptoms include- loss of interest in daily activities; saddening; hopelessness; low self-esteem, self-criticism; trouble making decisions; and excessive anger.
In recent years the topic of dieting has been extremely controversial. It is clear that diets do cause people to lose weight, but what are the effects after the diet is over? The daily argument over this topic is if dieting helps or if it is actually more damaging to those who engage in them. Despite the fact that diets help those overweight lose weight; dieting harms the body and causes weight gain in the long run. This is because dieting alters the body not knowing when to feel full leading to overeating as well as causing biological and physical damage.
Freshwater is an essential commodity for sustaining human life on earth. Rapid population growth and industrialization, especially in developing countries in the recent past, have placed pressing demands for freshwater. In the developing world, many regions suffer from shortages of freshwater supply. Water is one of the most abundant resources on earth, covering three-fourths of the planet’s surface. However, about 97% of the earth’s water is salt water in the oceans, and a tiny 3% is freshwater.
Current knowledge: My current knowledge in the Health and Social environment includes contemporary issues such as lifestyle factors such as drinking heavily, smoking, a poor diet lacking enough fruit and vegetables and not doing enough exercise. These all contribute to people becoming unwell more often and needing to rely on the NHS. An increasing amount of overweight/obese children shows us that this trend is set to continue. The NHS has helped to decrease the number of people dying from diseases which is great but this means that although people are living longer, it also means that they may be living with one or more long-term complex conditions.
As you age, your vertebral discs lose their water content, making them lose height. This would stack your vertebrae closer together and make the nerve openings narrower, leading to back pain. When this happens, your discs would be ineffective in its function as your body’s shock absorber. Myofascial pain syndrome. This chronic pain disorder is usually experienced when the muscles have been contracted repeatedly.
There are many physical changes that we go through once we enter into late adulthood, not only do we change externally, graying hair, wrinkles, sagging skin and a decrease in height due to the breaking down of cartilage in our backs but, we also go through internal physical changes. As our external aging features become more obvious there are also multiple internal changes taking place. As we get further into late adulthood, a sort of chain reaction starts. Blood vessels start to harden and shrink, which in turn causes the heart to lose the ability to pump as much blood to the brain, which causes it to shrink and pull away from the skull.
Meaning they are both uncontrolled cells, that are not responding to the bodies natural functions. Both Cancer and IPF have low life expectancies (Lung cancer), and they are both hard on the patient and the family. And finally, the mental health on both the patient, and the family are put to the test. The change in lifestyle, adjustments to living on oxygen. Normal tasks like walking, cooking, cleaning become a daily struggle.
Alzheimer 's is a hard disease to deal with, and more often, caregivers are needed for patients with Alzheimer 's disease. As a caregiver, it will not be an easy thing to do. In fact, caregivers are often stressed and overwhelmed because of the frequent care the Alzheimer 's patients require. They require help with eating, bathing, dressing, taking prescribed medication, communicating, help going to the bathroom, and more. Patients with Alzheimer 's are not able to perform these daily tasks because they may forget how to do them.
But it turns out it’s something you have to choose to do.” Physically everyone grows old automatically. Bodies tire, memories disappear, sicknesses arise, and people die. It is just something that happens in life, it is expected. However, generally, growing up mentally is a conscious effort.
The bones do not work properly when not in good condition, and when they have aged, they start not working as properly. They can get worn down from overuse or when you have used your bones your whole life since your bones never change or re replaced. "Some are programmed to die naturally, but conditions like osteoarthritis and osteoporosis are linked with an increased level of cell death. In other words, when a higher number of osteocytes die, the bones become weaker" (World of Anatomy and Physiology). Aging can start at different ages for every person, but for most women it starts in their thirties and for men it usually starts in their fifties.
