Foods and Dietary Supplements in the Prevention and Treatment of Disease in Older Adults focuses on the ways in which food and dietary supplements affect the major health problems of aging adults.

Researchers in nutrition, diet, epidemiology, and aging studies, as well as healthcare providers who work with elderly patients will use this comprehensive resource as a tool in their long-term goal of preventing and treating chronic disease within the elderly. Elderly patients with a history of coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, or peripheral vascular disease are at high risk of disabling events.

Risk can be reduced by aggressive management of vascular risk factors (eg, hypertension, smoking, diabetes, obesity, atrial fibrillation, dyslipidemia). Caregivers of the frail elderly must work assiduously to prevent accidents by completing a home safety checklist and correcting any potential problems that are identified.

Caregivers should watch for even subtle functional changes in elderly patients and promptly report any changes to a health care practitioner. Prevention of Frailty in the Elderly.

Tertiary Prevention—managing disease post diagnosis to slow or stop disease progression through measures such as chemotherapy, rehabili. Since regular physical activity helps prevent disease and promote health, it may actually decrease health care costs.

A study performed by researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that physically active people had, on average, lower annual direct medical costs than did inactive people. Elderly patients above 80 years of age may have more medical diseases as compared to patients within 61 to 71 years of age and thus a treatment with ACE inhibitors or beta-blockers may result in.

More than 38 million Americans age 40 and older are blind, visually impaired, or have an age-related eye disease, and adult vision loss costs our economy more than billion a year.

With major advances in vision research bringing new prevention and treatments, it is critical that support for research and incentives for innovation remain a priority. Social isolation is considered a risk factor in the development of disease and in the disability that can occur in the course of existing has been included as well in the measure of quality of life and thus is an outcome as well as a risk factor.
