    Common mechanisms involved in Alzheimer's disease and type 2 diabetes: a key role of chronic bacterial infection and inflammation

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4925815/

    Increasing evidence supports an association between periodontal and systemic disorders [33, 34].
    Possibly the most significant paper I have posted from the viewpoint of a generalist physiotherapist. Oral health is key to healthy ageing.

    I was lucky enough to have academic and clinical teachers in their 70s, 80s, and in one case 99! They were all excellent role models and I think about them a lot as I continue into my 60s. There is a great advantage with regards to pattern recognition. No two cases are the same, but there is very little I haven't seen in some form in the past.

    How and why resistance training is imperative for older adults

    https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0725162305.htm

    This is massively important and extremely difficult to implement as elders can be very resistant to the idea. My parents know what they should do, but they won't do it unless I go to their home and put them through their paces. As for me, I carry a very heavy backpack and raise my heart rate by walking fast and climbing stairs. The London Underground gives me ample opportunity for balance training as does negotiating my way through rush hour crowds.

    New study identifies molecular aging 'midlife crisis'


    https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0606150231.htm

    The study provides a possible new reason why human disease burden increases so sharply from the sixth decade of life onward as health-protective mechanisms disappear. Which raises the question: If one wishes to boost these established "anti-aging" programs with drugs, nutrients, or lifestyle choices, is it too late to start by the time you reach your 60s? Possibly, said Dr. Wahlestedt -- at least if you hope to benefit fully from such interventions.

    Strategies for optimising musculoskeletal health in the 21st century

    https://bmcmusculoskeletdisord.biome...891-019-2510-7

    We live in a world with an ever-increasing ageing population. Studying healthy ageing and reducing the socioeconomic impact of age-related diseases is a key research priority for the industrialised and developing countries, along with a better mechanistic understanding of the physiology and pathophysiology of ageing that occurs in a number of age-related musculoskeletal disorders. Arthritis and musculoskeletal disorders constitute a major cause of disability and morbidity globally and result in enormous costs for our health and social-care systems.

    By gaining a better understanding of healthy musculoskeletal ageing and the risk factors associated with premature ageing and senescence, we can provide better care and develop new and better-targeted therapies for common musculoskeletal disorders. This review is the outcome of a two-day multidisciplinary, international workshop sponsored by the Institute of Advanced Studies entitled “Musculoskeletal Health in the 21st Century” and held at the University of Surrey from 30th June-1st July 2015.

    The aim of this narrative review is to summarise current knowledge of musculoskeletal health, ageing and disease and highlight strategies for prevention and reducing the impact of common musculoskeletal diseases.

    Chronic diseases restrict the mobility of older people -- often unconsciously

    https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0411101740.htm

    Exercise therapies tailored to the type of disease can significantly improve individuals' physical functioning, mobility and possibilities for independent living.

    "It is important that also those with long-term illnesses are able to move, taking into account the safety issues related to the illness, of course," Kujala says. "More attention should be paid to the use of exercise therapy in healthcare. This benefits both individuals and society."
    Many of mine have been given fitbits by their families. Some families have gone so over the top in terms of monitoring that the elders have taken to sabotage! I find it difficult to mediate sometimes, having reached early old age myself.
