Aging can also be defined as a progressive functional decline, or a gradual deterioration of physiological function with age, including a decrease in fecundity, or the intrinsic, inevitable and irreversible aging process of loss of viability and increase in vulnerability. Physiological changes occur slowly over time in all body systems. These changes are influenced by life events, illnesses, genetic traits and socioeconomic factors.

The study of the biology of aging or biogerontology, has as its primary objective understanding the basic processes that underlie aging and agerelated disease. For some this means increasing human life span, for others it means increasing human health-span. Biological aging is the gradual deterioration of function characteristic of most complex life forms, arguably found in all biological kingdoms, that on the level of the organism increases mortality after maturation. The word senescence can refer either to cellular senescence or to senescence of the whole organism.ase.

Modern western society is obsessed with achievement, youth, and beauty. Since the latter half of the 20th Century there has been an increasing focus on the body as a vehicle for identity and self expression, with a greater recognition of the role of appearance and the desire for self improvement. The growth of cosmetic surgery is not a reflection of the increasing ugliness of people but a reflection of our increasing negative self-perception.

Calorie needs change due to more body fat and less lean muscle. Less activity can further decrease calorie needs. With age, it becomes more important that diets contain enough calcium, fiber, iron, protein, and the vitamins A, B12, C, D and Folacin. Older adults should reduce calories, select nutrient-dense foods, and enjoy smaller portions of foods high in fat, sugar and sodium. Because no one food or pill provides all of the nutrients, they should eat a variety of foods to get the full spectrum of nutrients.

Forgetfulness is a common complaint among older adults. Mental Health should be the most important aspect for the aged people to lead a normal life. While mental illness is not an inevitable part of aging, and older people actually experience fewer mental health conditions (excepting cognitive impairment) as they age, approximately 6.9% of people aged 65-74 experience "frequent mental distress," and many experience mental health and substance use conditions associated with loss of functional capacity even though a formal diagnosis may not be justified.

Changes in posture and gait (walking pattern) are common with aging. Bones become more brittle and may break more easily. Overall height decreases, mainly because the trunk and spine shorten. Breakdown of the joints may lead to inflammation, pain, stiffness, and deformity. Joint changes affect almost all elderly people. These changes range from minor stiffness to severe arthritis. The posture may become more stooped (bent). The knees and hips may become more flexed.

An aging-associated disease is a disease that is most often seen with increasing frequency with increasing senescence. An estimated 83.6 million American adults have 1 or more types of Cardiovascular diseases, Of these, 42.2 million are estimated to be ≥60 years of age. For the 60–79-year-old age group, the following have Cardiovascular diseases, 70.2% of men, 70.9% of women. For the 80+ year-old age group, 83.0% of men; 87.1% of women have Cardiovascular diseases. Heart failure is the major cause for the death of elderly people suffering from cardiac problem The most commonly effected disease for the elderly people is Parkinson’s disease.

Disability is the consequence of an impairment that may be physical, cognitive, mental, sensory, emotional, developmental, or some combination of these. A disability may be present from birth, or occur during a person's lifetime. The disabilities that are generally seen in the elderly people are weakening of vision, hearing impairment, olfaction & taste function disabilities. Glaucoma, Cataracts and Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) are the visual impairments that are developed with the age.

More than one in four American adults, according to a 2009 AARP survey, have become family caregivers to aging loved ones with chronic conditions. Of those caregivers, many spend, on average, nearly 20 hours a week in addition to an outside job caring for elderly parents. Aging Services provides the required services for the elderly people.

By 2030, the number of U.S. adults aged 65 years or older will more than double to about 71 million. The rapidly increasing number and diversity of older Americans has far-reaching implications for the U.S. public health system and will place unprecedented demands on aging services and the nation’s entire health care system. Quality of life is widely accepted as an indicator of successful ageing, and it is monitored as a means of measuring the effectiveness of social policies, welfare programmes, and health care.

Genetics of aging is generally concerned with life extension associated with genetic alterations, rather than with accelerated aging diseases leading to reduction in lifespan. The role of genetics in determining life-span is complex and paradoxical. Although the heritability of life-span is relatively minor, some genetic variants significantly modify senescence of mammals and invertebrates, with both positive and negative impacts on age-related disorders and life-spans.

A Case Study involves an up-close, in-depth, and detailed examination of a subject (the case), as well as its related contextual conditions. Case studies appear with great frequency throughout popular works, with nearly anybody able to claim to have done one. Case studies also can be produced by following a formal research method. These case studies are likely to appear in formal research venues, such as journals and professional conferences, rather than popular works. Aging population in USA, Geriatric Psychiatry and other case studies related to the aging population are discussed.

Aging is the single biggest risk factor for developing cancer. However, it also increases the risk of other diseases and injury and can affect a person’s well-being, independence, and feelings of self-worth all issues that need to be considered when cancer treatment decisions are being made, as well as during treatment. Older adults have a higher risk for cancer and other diseases that may affect cancer treatment, care, and recovery.

Aging women make up a significant proportion of the world's population and their numbers are growing. Worldwide, there are some 123 women for every 100 men aged 60 and over. The common problems faced by the elderly women are Menopause, decrease in bone density, Breast and Cervical Cancers. After menopause, women tend to lose bone mass at an accelerated rate, which can lead to osteoporosis.

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Health is a dynamic condition resulting from a body’s constant adjustment and adaptation in response to stresses and changes in the environment for maintaining an inner equilibrium called Homeostasis. Aging refers to the inevitable, irreversible decline in organ function that occurs over time even in the absence of injury, illness, or poor lifestyle choices.

Anti-aging treatments are meant to slow down the aging process by many ways. Anti-aging diet includes the nutrition requirements for the body for its healthy functioning and to reduce the risk of cell aging. Getting adequate nutrition can be a challenge as you get older. With age, the number of calories you need begins to decline. Anti-aging medicine is the pinnacle of biotechnology joined with advanced clinical preventive medicine.
