What you need to know about a woman over 60
Undoubtedly, over the years, human experience accumulates, and it becomes more wise, practical and realistic. Unfortunately, with age, women develop a wide variety of ailments and illnesses.
Some of them are obviously serious diseases that can lead a woman to the hospital or even worse make her disabled. To avoid this, you need to carefully monitor your health, exercise and correctly make up the daily menu.
Before embarking on any activities, procedures and other necessary things to maintain health, you need to know what are the norms of health, and how the body behaves at a given age.
How to maintain health in 60 years, what to pass tests and standards indicators
In order to know exactly what abnormalities and diseases you have, you definitely need to visit the clinic and undergo a comprehensive diagnosis of the whole organism. Below we will tell you about what tests to pass in 60 years, what you need to pay attention to and what are the average rates of indicators for women after 60.
There is no secret that the very first general tests are blood tests. And in order to understand how healthy a woman is, below are the basic norms.
1. The rate of blood sugar
As you know, blood glucose is a very important element. After all, any deviations from the norm are signs of the disease. It is also important to note that measurements of blood sugar should be carried out on an empty stomach. It is worth paying attention to the fact that the rate of sugar in a woman after 60 may increase.
The blood sugar rate for a woman after 60 is between 4.6 and 6.4 mmol / l.
|Norm fasting (mmol / l)||Norm after food (mmol / l)|
|Norm||From 3.3 to 3.5||Up to 7.8|
|Hyperglycemia||> 5.5||> 7.6|
Deviations from the normal blood glucose lead to serious consequences, since this may be the cause of diabetes, liver obesity, increased metabolism, heart disease, kidney, liver, stomach and much more.
2. The rate of cholesterol in the blood
Cholesterol is very necessary and, at the same time, a dangerous component of our body. After all, without the so-called "fatty alcohol", we would not produce vitamin D , digestion would not function, sex hormones would not be synthesized, and reproductive function would give 90% failure.
Blood cholesterol standards after 60 years:
|Overall||LDL cholesterol||HDL cholesterol|
|4.45 - 7.69 mmol / l||2.59 - 5.80 mmol / l||0.98 - 2.38 mmol / l|
Note that the rate of cholesterol in women is mostly stable, and its growth begins after the onset of menopause.
One of the most important indicators. Indeed, as practice shows, with age, pressure changes its norm, both in the upper and lower index. At the same time, it should be noted that 78% of people at the age do not suffer from arterial pressure.
Low or high blood pressure occurs due to strong loads, or, conversely, due to a sedentary lifestyle. There are also frequent cases when a woman feels severe or moderate dizziness.
Such symptoms indicate not only pressure drops, but also general malaise and even a disease that weakens an already weakening organism.
For women after 60, normal pressure is fixed at 144/85. Of course, there are cases when the pressure corresponds to the norm of a healthy young man and is fixed at around 120/80.
4. The rate of ROE in the blood
ESR is a non-specific analysis that includes abnormalities even in an absolutely healthy person. At the same time, this type of analysis helps to identify a variety of infectious inflammation, as well as cancer or autoimmune diseases.
In simple terms, ESR is the erythrocyte sedimentation reaction. Among physicians, this analysis is called ESR — the erythrocyte sedimentation rate. Thus, ESR and ROE are the same analyzes under different names.
As for the norm in terms, it is 2-15 mm / hour. As indicated by foreign experts from reputable institutions and medical institutions, the norm is from 0 to 20 mm / hour.
5. Creatinine in the blood and its rate
Creatinine is the final product that enters the kidneys through the blood. This is a kind of "generator" of energy for the muscles. In the average person, this rule remains static for a long time. But deviations from the norm can be observed in people associated with strong physical exertion, unhealthy diet, vegetarians and the elderly.
Important! Analyzes on creatinine are complex, that is, they take blood and urine. And, already on the basis of the results, you can roughly see the situation in the body.
The following creatinine rates in women:
The overall rate is equal to the indicators from 50 to 98 μmol / l.
Creatinine clearance in women after 60 ranges from 50 to 110 µmol / L.
The ratio of nitrogen and creatinine in the urine:
- Nitrogen from 7 to 25 mg / dl.
- Creatinine from 0.50 to 0.99 mg / dL.
It should be noted, the lower the muscle tone, the lower the creatinine in the blood.
6. Hemoglobin is the norm in a woman after 60
Hemoglobin is a necessary element in the blood. After all, this element is engaged in the saturation of blood with oxygen. As you know, without oxygen, a person will not live long.
You should know that the rate of hemoglobin in women after 60 stops at around 11.7 to 16.1 g / dL .
7. TSH and its rate in older women
TSH is a kind of regulator of the balance of hormones in the thyroid gland, as well as an indispensable assistant in other directions. The main task of thyroid-stimulating hormone is to stimulate the thyroid gland to produce other hormones. In fact, this is the head of the entire hormonal system. But the main function of this hormone is the regulation of reproductive activity in women and men.
The presence of a hormone in the blood at around 0.4 to 4.0 IU / liter is considered to be the normal TSH in a woman after 60. And all women who have exchanged the sixth ten, it is strongly recommended to monitor regularly and carefully the hormonal background.
8. Eye pressure and its rate
As is well known, eye pressure plays one of the important roles in the functioning of vision. And doctors unanimously assert that pressure at the level of 10 to 23 mm of mercury can be considered the norm . This allows you to maintain all the functions and properties of vision.
Minor changes in this indicator do not strongly affect the functioning of the eye and can manifest themselves in the morning after waking up, and in the evening after a hard day, but all this is within the normal range and should not be panicked.
As for women after 60, the data on eye pressure for each woman are individual. And digital indicators, most likely, are arranged as recommendatory signs on the development of one or another deviation. But, it is worth noting that the pressure in the eye begins its "free" swimming, and can constantly change after 40.
Thus, in order not to harm and timely detect the disease, older women need to undergo an ophthalmologic examination regularly.
So what should a woman do after 60, how to preserve her health, beauty?
First of all, we must remember that after 50 years, the hormonal background of a woman changes somewhat. The climacteric period does its work, changing both the mood of the woman and predisposing to various diseases. There are hot flashes , blood pressure rises, there is dryness and irritation in the vagina. In this case, one thing to remember: if menopause bothers you very much, you should definitely contact a gynecologist for examination and prescription of hormone replacement therapy (female hormones - estrogen).
However, a number of Russian women cannot afford expensive hormone replacement therapy. And some women after 60 years do not want to drink any pills and drugs. Phytoestrogen replacement therapy is quite suitable for them. Recall that phytoestrogens are found in foods such as raspberries, cherries, ginger, potatoes (potato juice), valerian, licorice, soy (there are a lot of phytoestrogens in soybeans). The use of these natural phytoestrogens will allow you to forget about the various problems that arise during menopause.
For women after 60 years, a gradual increase in osteoporosis in the bones is characteristic. The reason for this is, again, climax plus low physical activity of modern women. You need to know that in these conditions will not help any dietary supplements, bio-calcium, cottage cheese with milk and other products and preparations containing calcium. Simply, excess calcium will not be absorbed by the body, but simply derived from it.
The worst thing for women in this period is bone fractures, which, without the addition of calcium, become more fragile.
The way out of this situation: physical education. Systematically, every day, gradually increasing the load, we do physical exercises so that the bones are strong and saturated with calcium, as before. Plus, be sure to take multivitamin preparations - Complivit, Ultravit or other complexes in which the content of vitamins and minerals is already balanced.
If you think that after 60 years of age you cannot engage in physical culture or even harm, then you can be sure that not only is it possible, but even necessary. And as a vivid example of this as proof - the world champion in powerlifting (that is, the bench press) Galina Tserova, at her age for 80 years, raises the bar at 40-50 kg:
And here is another example - a grandmother from the United States, who turned 75 years old, is engaged in bodybuilding, that is, she trains the muscles of her body at the gym, barbell and dumbbells, and participates in competitions:
And by the way, as doctors say, at 60 a woman can lift weights and generally do physical exercises with a weight of up to 90% of the weight that she was lifting at the age of 20. Well, judging by the video, modern 20-year-old women will not be able to lift the weight that 80-year-old women are lifting.
Bladder sphincter weakness is not uncommon in women after 60 years. This is again due to climacteric phenomena, as well as weakness of the sphincter muscles. I must say that this phenomenon does not occur as often as it is said about it, but if it does, then you will agree, it is rather unpleasant. Another unpleasant moment or disease that occurs in women after 50-60 years is the prolapse and prolapse of the vagina and rectum.
Prevention of these phenomena may be gymnastics, or special exercises for the pelvic floor muscles, which you can show and tell you how your gynecologist or urologist can do.
Well, if your urologist or gynecologist does not know such exercises, which is not surprising - they are not taught this, you have to comprehend and learn everything yourself, here are a few of them:
- squeeze the sphincter of the anus strongly for 5 seconds, as if you sharply wanted to large, but there is no suitable place, and you have to endure, then relax for 10 seconds. So repeat twice. Each week, increase the number of repetitions at once, bringing them to 10-15.
- squeeze the entrance to the vagina. The easiest way to do this, as if you wanted a little to the toilet and also suffered, squeezing the bladder muscles. For control, you can insert a finger into the vagina and feel the degree of compression. Time - 5 seconds. We also repeat 2 times, increasing every week one by one, bringing to 10-15 times.
- to draw the lower abdomen into itself, but not with the air, but with the muscles. It’s as if you’ve touched your lower abdomen with cold or red-hot iron and you would reflexively lower your lower back, pulling your belly into yourself. I repeat - we work with the abdominal muscles. Also for 5 seconds, also 2 repetitions, we also increase to 10-15.
Unfortunately, various hormonal disruptions , vitamin deficiencies, diseases, and infections can all cause a disease such as diabetes in a woman after 60 years.
If we consider it in more detail, then it is during menopause , which often overtakes a woman in the period from 50 to 60 years, because of the body reconfiguration and hormonal failure, diabetes can be detected. Unfortunately, during this period, women ignore all the symptoms and attribute them to menopause.
In order to be prepared and in time to cope with the upcoming disease, the following are the main signs of diabetes:
- Pain in the heart.
- Pain in the legs.
- Sharp weight change.
- Dry mouth.
- Skin problems
- Reduced muscle tone.
These are all signs of diabetes. In order to avoid the development of this disease, doctors recommend that during the period of menopause, it is very responsible for their health, to be tested, to receive expert advice from specialists. It is also recommended to drink vitamins , undergo hormone therapy, create a balanced menu.
The sexual life of women aged 60 years
You will now be surprised and begin to say annoyingly that this is a bad joke, but, as practice shows, sex life after 60 does not end.
Of course, at that age, making love is a more complicated process, because there are a number of causes and diseases. Many simply get tired quickly. But, as polls show, most people over 60 are not against intimacy and even get more pleasure. Sex in a woman after 60 is not a myth, but a reality.
As for the question, can a woman become pregnant after 60? You can answer unequivocally - no! But this is only if the whole process is natural, without the use of modern technologies and operations.
