Deterioration : Vision and hearing deteriorate with age. Bones get weaker. Balance and gait (walking) can worsen. Kidneys might not work as well, the list is extensive! it is important to get regular followup with a doctor especially as you get older. Get your eyes/hearing checked. Make sure you get your immunizations and any age-appropriate cancer screenings. Take calcium and vitamin d to strength bones, etc.
