TopMedicalAlertCompanies.com, a long established distributor of free medical alert companies and systems quotes, has created content specifically for seniors and other aging adults who have serious and life-changing health issues. The section provides health advice that suggests basic symptoms, causes and treatments.
The Senior Health Issues section can be found within the Senior Health Guide link on the home page of TopMedicalAlertCompanies.com. Currently, this ever-expanding section includes articles on nine major health issues that plague seniors, including topics like diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and osteoporosis. The two most recent articles discuss periodontal disease and chronic kidney disease. “Periodontal Disease in the Elderly: Symptoms & Treatment” explains how serious this common senior ailment is. This disease is the main reason many people of advanced age begin losing teeth and experience tooth decay and gum inflammation. According to the article, periodontitis, as the disease is more formally known, affects individuals who neglect to floss and brush their teeth sufficiently, as well as those who maintain a poor diet. Oral antibiotics, laser surgery, and even tissue grafts may be necessary to combat this painful condition. If left unchecked, periodontitis may even lead to heart problems due to infection.
Chronic Kidney Disease in the Elderly: Symptoms & Treatment devotes five paragraphs to one of the most common life-ending diseases for seniors. Renal disease and kidney failure are often very difficult to notice in early stages, making preventive treatment key in combating the disease. The article notes that high cholesterol and blood pressure may place people at greater risk for the condition. Symptoms include sudden weight loss and skin tone changes, among others. Exercise and medication can slow the onset of the disease, but, ultimately, a kidney transplant will be necessary for all individuals with renal disease, with dialysis prolonging patients' lives until they find a donor.
TopMedicalAlertCompanies.com spokesman MaryAnn Berg commented on the articles, “Although we are not trained medical professionals, writing about these conditions can provide our site's visitors with valuable medical information that can encourage them to seek professional treatment for themselves or their loved ones. We hope that these topics prove of great interest to seniors, as we certainly care for the elderly people all over the world suffering from any of these conditions.”
