Essential Tremor (ET) is an uncontrollable shaking in a part of the upper body. It is more common in the elderly and symptoms worsen with age.

 

  • Gait change
  • Hair usually becomes thinner and grayer.
  • Hearts are less efficient in old age with a resulting loss of stamina. In addition, atherosclerosis can constrict blood flow
  • Less efficient immune function
  • Skin loses elasticity, becomes drier, and more lined and wrinkled.
  • Taste buds diminish
  • Voice. In old age, vocal cords weaken and vibrate more slowly. This results in a weakened, breathy voice that is sometimes called an “old person’s voice.
