For these reasons it is their frailty that is the limiting factor for most (otherwise healthy) very old persons. This weakness of old age is characterized by diminished muscle power, slowed reflexes, impaired mobility and balance, and reduced stamina. The result is falls, fractures, reduced daily phys- ical activity, and loss of independence. , damage to joints), but also by lack of movement, leading to a vicious circle. Aging of the immune system (immunosenescence) contributes to the aging process.

Even with mild hypothermia and/ or low ambient temperature the perfusion of skin and limbs is markedly reduced, with intermittent and brief increases (Lewis reaction: about every 20 min at a skin temperature < 10 °C). None the less, frostbite may occur: 1st degree (at first pallor and loss of sensation; swelling and pain after rewarming); 2nd degree (blister formation after 12 – 24 h followed later by healing); 3rd degree (after days and weeks: extensive tissue necrosis with healing by scar). info A.

It is freed from its binding to salivary proteins in the lumen of the small intestine; ◆ Competition for cobalamine and splitting of IF from bacteria (blind-loop syndrome; → p. , at the site of absorption of cobalamine (→ p. ); ◆ Defective transcobalamine II (TCII), which is responsible for cobalamine transport in plasma and for its uptake into cells. Because of the great store of cobalamine in the liver, the symptoms of cobalamine deficiency (pernicious anemia, neurological abnormalities) occur only after years of blocked supply.
