Therefore, the author should especially remind the elderly friends to be particularly cautious about blood pressure, lipid-lowering and cardiovascular drugs.Pay attention to the safety of medication.
Nowadays, the use of drugs by the elderly is relatively blind, and unscientific behaviors such as abuse, miscellaneous and disorder are more common.
The elderly use more drugs, enter the old age, the tolerance to drugs has been weakened, coupled with the elderly liver and kidney dysfunction, excretion slow, more likely to produce drug side effects.
Therefore, the elderly must be careful when using drugs.

Therefore, the elderly medication should be based on moderate medicinal properties, suitable for traditional Chinese medicine nursed back to health, Western medicine first aid.
In addition, in terms of diet, the elderly in the fall may wish to eat more warm foods, such as fresh beef and mutton, drink more fish soup, bone soup, mutton soup stewed radish, etc., these foods are also more easily absorbed by the body.
