Outsmart your age

More than 9 in 10 older adults have some type of chronic disease, and almost 8 in 10 have more than one. So chances are, you'll have one sooner or later. But there are things you can do to live a healthier life.


High blood pressure

As you age, your blood vessels get less flexible, and that puts pressure on the system that carries blood through your body. That might explain why about 2 in 3 adults over 60 have high blood pressure. But there are other causes you can control: Watch your weight, exercise, stop smoking, find ways to deal with stress, and eat healthy.


Diabetes

Since 1980, the number of middle-aged and older adults with diabetes has almost doubled. Your risk of getting the disease goes up after you hit 45, and it can be serious. It can lead to heart disease, kidney disease, blindness, and other problems.


Heart Disease

Plaque buildup in your arteries is a major cause of heart disease. It starts in childhood and gets worse as you age. That's why people age 40 to 59 are more than five times as likely to have heart disease as people 20 to 39. Regular weight-bearing exercise, like dancing, jogging, or climbing stairs.


Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

This causes inflammation and blocks air from your lungs. It’s a slow-moving disease that you could have for years without knowing it -- symptoms usually show up in your 40s or 50s. It can make you have trouble breathing, and you may cough, wheeze, and spit up mucus. Exercise, a healthy diet, and avoiding smoke and pollution can help.
