Gerocomia 07-29

Obesity is the cause of many diseases and can increase the risk of diabetes, hypertension, gout, coronary heart disease and other diseases. In people's eyes, it seems a good thing for the elderly to become thinner. But in fact, this is not the case. The sudden weight loss of the elderly may indicate that some diseases have occurred in the body.

So, what are the signs of diseases that are "old and thin"?

The old man suddenly loses weight, beware! Be careful is a sign of these diseases!

1. Diabetes. Polydipsia, polyuria, polyphagia, and weight loss are typical symptoms of diabetic patients. The reason why diabetic patients have symptoms such as weight loss and low weight is mainly due to the relative or absolute lack of insulin secretion. When insulin secretion is insufficient, you can not make full use of grape sugar, then the body will break down fat tissue in the human body as a direct source of energy.

2. Malignant tumors. Most cancer patients will have obvious characteristics of weight loss, which is mainly caused by the fact that the consumption of nutrients is greater than the intake, and the body's heat energy "cannot make ends meet". The proliferation of cancer cells needs to consume a lot of nutrients, such as protein, and because protein can only be ingested from muscle lipoproteins, many cancer patients will have muscle atrophy in addition to weight loss.

3. Hyperthyroidism. Senile hyperthyroidism is an endocrine disease that the elderly often suffer from. Hyperthyroidism is a wasting disease. Thyroid hormone can promote the oxidation of sugar and protein in the body, regulate the vagus nerve, and promote bowel movements. In addition, the indigestible food will cause patients with hyperthyroidism to experience increased bowel movements and thin body.

4. Depression. Geriatric depression is a very common depression. In recent years, aging has accelerated, and senile depression has become more common. In addition to symptoms such as insomnia, emotional restlessness, and limited thinking, elderly depression patients may also experience symptoms such as decreased appetite and reduced eating, which can lead to weight loss and weight loss.
