Abstract
Elderly people constitutes a specific group of the population and the proportion of elderly in the population is increasing. This increase causes an increase in a variety of health problems such as chronic diseases. Better life at aging, requires prevention of many chronic diseases. Therefore initiatives should be planned to protect elderly population from these diseases. One of the most important prevention strategies is routine screening. Diseases that can be diagnosed at early stage in the elderly are cardiovascular diseases, cancers, bone metabolism diseases, cognitive dysfunction and nutritional problems. There are some recommended screening programs also for these diseases. The elderly admitted to health institutions should be periodically examined for these diseases. During this examination, increased problems related with aging and their solutions should be explained to elderly and their relatives. In this way, protection of these diseases should be provided and secondary events related with these diseases like disability, dependence or premature deaths can be minimized.

Key words: elderly, early diagnosis, screening



Yaşlılık Döneminde Önerilen Tarama Testleri

Özet
Yaşlı nüfus toplumun özellikli bir grubunu oluşturmakta ve nüfus içindeki payı giderek artmaktadır. Yaşlı nüfusun toplam nüfus içindeki payının artması kronik hastalıklar gibi çeşitli sağlık sorunlarının da artışını beraberinde getirmektedir. Bu durum yaşlılıkta daha iyi bir yaşam için, ilerleyen yaşla birlikte arttığı bilinen hastalıklardan korunmayı gerekli kılmaktadır. Gerekli olan en önemli korunma stratejilerinden biri erken tanı amacıyla rutin taramaların yapılmasıdır. Yaşlılarda erken tanı konulabilecek ve tarama yapılması önerilen hastalıkların başında kardiyovasküler sistem hastalıkları, kanserler, kemik metabolizma hastalıkları, bilişsel fonksiyon bozuklukları ve beslenme sorunları gelmektedir. Sağlık kuruluşlarına başvuran yaşlı bireyler bu hastalıklar açısından periyodik muayeneden geçirilmelidir. Bu muayeneler sırasında yaşlılara ve yakınlarına yaşlanmayla birlikte ortaya çıkan ve sıklığı artan sağlık sorunları ile bunlara yönelik çözümler anlatılmalıdır. Bu şekilde yaşlılık döneminde hastalıklardan korunma sağlanabilir ya da sakatlık, bağımlılık, erken ölüm gibi ikincil olaylar en aza indirilebilir.

Anahtar Kelimeler: yaşlı, erken tanı, tarama
