What's Your Aging IQ?
Sam is 70.
Sam is 70. He can't understand why he is more tired than he used to be. He goes to bed and gets up at the same time he always has. He often takes an afternoon nap. Maybe it's because he has a lot on his mind right now. His younger brother was just diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Sam's worried because he seems to be more forgetful than before—even a little confused sometimes. Could he have Alzheimer's too?
Osteoporosis, heart disease, eye problems, trouble sleeping—just to name some of the things we've discussed. No wonder older people seem to take a lot of medicine!
