Women in Their 60's
By the time you're in your 60's, you may have noticed something of a shift in your health. Joint pain becomes more common, so it's important to do what you can to protect your joints while continuing to be active. You're more likely at this stage of the game to be taking medication for a chronic condition, such as hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes or an autoimmune disorder. And you may find that your energy level isn't what it used to be.
If you haven't already developed a trusting relationship with a primary care doctor, now is most definitely the time. A doctor who's familiar with your health history and current health status can help guide you through this decade with a focus on prevention and early treatment of conditions that do arise.
