Aging is something that every guy deals with. Recognizing some of the changes you'll experience while you age will help you to prevent some problems now and help you to deal with others when they occur.
HairWhile some men will get to a ripe old age with a head of hair as full as it was during their teens, most of us will experience some hair loss: Two-thirds of men will be bald or balding by 60. The odds may not be on your side but you shouldn't worry about male pattern baldness. Unless it's a sudden result of stress or illness, male pattern baldness isn't typically associated with any medical disorders. Bald athletes and movie stars are often seen as sex symbols, and plenty of younger men opt for the clean, no-fuss look.
Bone and Muscle MassIncreased fracture risk and weakness with age aren't just concerns for women. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF), an estimated 12 million American men are at risk for osteoporosis. Although bone mineral density typically peaks at 30, you're not helpless to prevent gradual loss of bone and muscle.
Quit smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, both associated with poor bone health. Get plenty of calcium, abundant in dairy and leafy greens, as well as vitamin D, which is produced by direct contact with sunlight or found in fortified foods. A weight-training regimen, as well as any exercise in which your muscles work against gravity, is also a great way to maintain optimal bone health.
