How does it affect your Physiology?
Several Physiological changes occur in the body in the growing process in all organ systems.
Heart- The cardiac output decreases, blood pressure increases and arteriosclerosis develops.
Lungs- An impaired gas exchange is observed, a decrease in vital capacity and slower expiratory flow rates.
Kidney- The creatinine clearance decreases with age although the serum creatinine level remains relatively constant due to a proportionate age-related decrease in creatinine production.
Gastro- intestinal tract- Functional changes, largely related to altered motility patterns, occur in the gastrointestinal system with senescence, and atrophic gastritis and altered hepatic drug metabolism are common in the elderly.
Blood glucose- Progressive elevation occurs with age on a multifactorial basis and osteoporosis is frequently seen due to a linear decline in bone mass after the fourth decade.
Skin- The skin atrophies is noticed in the epidermis with age and due to changes in collagen and elastin the skin loses its tone and elasticity. Lean body mass declines with ag’e and this is primarily due to loss and atrophy of muscle cells. Degenerative changes occur in many joints and this, combined with the loss of muscle mass, inhibits elderly patients locomotion. These changes with age have important practical implications for the clinical management of elderly patients: metabolism is altered, changes in response to commonly used drugs make different drug dosages necessary and there is need for rational preventive programs of diet and exercise in an effort to delay or reverse some of these changes.
