What age-related health issues should seniors be proactive about?

Written By Samarth Staff | Medically Reviewed by Dr. Anup Bagchi, MBBS, Geriatric specialist

Seniors should prioritize screenings for cancer, cardiovascular issues, osteoporosis, diabetes, vision and hearing loss, cognitive function, and immunizations. These screenings help detect age-related health issues early, allowing for timely intervention and improved outcomes. Regular communication with physicians is essential to develop a personalized screening plan based on individual health needs and risk factors.

Chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension are major health concerns for seniors in India. According to a study published in The Lancet, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) account for 61% of all deaths in India, with cardiovascular diseases being the leading cause.
