Welcome to Bupa's health hub of information on ageing.

Illnesses and treatment related to ageing

Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. Osteoarthritis is uncommon in people under the age of 40 but becomes more common with age. The majority of people with this condition are over 65 years.


Glaucoma affects 1 in 100 people over the age of 40, and becomes more common with increasing age. Glaucoma can lead to blindness, but if it's detected and treated early, this can usually be prevented.
