The Cause Of The Body’s Elderly Weak After Falling?
I want to ask what if the 63-year-old elderly falls after falling in contact with the sun’s heat for about 3 hours because when it falls there is no help but only about 3 hours after the fall there is help that can cause weakness even though the body is regular? …
Hello Hanifan, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com
Before I want to confirm in advance, do you mean that the patient becomes weak and falls (even though eating regularly), or you mean that after the fall event the patient becomes weak (even though eating regularly)?
Basically, a limp body can be caused by many possibilities. Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) due to irregular eating can indeed cause the body to become weak, but the cause of weakness and falls is still very much. The following are some other causes of weakness:
lack of sleep and rest and sleep disturbance (insomnia, stopping breathing during sleep) excessive physical activity and stress side effects of certain drugs dehydration or lack of fluid decreased blood pressure due to position (orthostatic hypotension) anemia and heavy blood loss in a fast time of fever and infection chronic diseases (for example heart problems, kidney disorders, liver disorders, diabetes, cancer etc.) thyroid hormone disorders and many other causes If indeed the condition of weakness occurs continuously, it helps you advise the patient to consult a doctor directly so that it can be done more complete evaluation and further administration.
Some things to do:
Make sure the patient eats nutritious food regularly, it's better to set the time to eat more often (4-5 times a day) Get enough sleep and rest every day (7-9 hours a day) Drink in sufficient quantities (at least 2-3 liters a day) Perform sufficient physical activity (exercise at least 30 minutes a day) Reduce stress If the patient consumes certain drugs, consult the use of drugs with his doctor.
