Diet
If you feel you need help controlling your weight, you may want to consider speaking to a dietitian. You may either want to lose weight to try and improve your health and decrease your chances of developing conditions like diabetes or heart problems. Alternatively, you may want to maintain or try to increase you weight. Either way make sure to keep an eye on any nutrient deficiencies like calcium or vitamin D to prevent osteoporosis and check your blood sugar every year in case of diabetes.

Consider the differences of aging as a hemophilia patient
Older people are often told to take an aspirin each day to help prevent blood clots, however, patients with hemophilia should not. Erectile dysfunction is also a common condition as you  ge and you may need to speak to a doctor about medication. Do be aware however that if you have hemophilia, ED treatments have been known to cause nosebleeds.

These are just some factors that differ from the “regular” problems you should look out for as you grow older. Look to those who usually help you with your treatment so they can help you deal with age-related issues as they come your way.
