In brief: Not necessarily
Lifespan is dependent on many things: genetics, environmental hazards, nutrition, smoking, drinking, drug use, stress, other medical conditions, weight, your attitude about life, and how this all effects your mental and emotional health.
You may have more risk of osteoporosis, increased cholesterol, dementia but how you chose to live your life is the most important factor for lifespan.
