The Cause Of The Body Is Often Not Feeling Well In The Elderly?
Good morning,. I want to ask. My grandmother is 60 years old. He experienced chills, his mouth was always dry even though he had drunk a lot of water, he walked unsteadily but was not too dizzy, his feet also hurt from the knees down, his hands tingled, and his ears were like clogged and cracked sounds but when checked there was nothing and he often felt unwell. Please explain, yes and what actions to take? R nThank you, 🙂
Hi AnnisaAulia .. Thank you for the question.
As a person gets older, various complaints can arise, this is related to the degenerative process or the aging process in every body cell. The dizziness that your grandmother experiences like falling can be caused by:
Low blood pressure Low sugar levels that can occur due to lack of food intake Anemia / lack of red blood cells which are responsible for delivering oxygen throughout the body. Meanwhile, pain in the feet and tingling sensation in the hands can be affected by:
Inflammation of the joints (for example: osteoarthritis, osteoporosis) gout muscle pain / myalgia high cholesterol levels Injury to muscles or bones and joints If your grandmother's complaints occur continuously and are accompanied by difficulty in activity, numbness in the leg or limb area is felt difficult to move, it is better to see a doctor so that the doctor can perform a physical examination directly and can be supported by Hb checks, checks for cholesterol, uric acid, and if necessary with X-rays so that the diagnosis can be confirmed. While the ear that feels buzzing or also known as tinnitus or hearing loss in old age (presbiacusis) is influenced by increasing age so you can also check your grandmother to an ENT doctor for an ear examination and hearing loss. Due to the aging process, many organs begin to experience disorders so that elderly people often experience more than one complaint.
What can be done:
Adequate rest and eat nutritious food Avoid picking your ears Do light exercise such as walking regularly to train bones and muscles Hopefully useful
