Rare Aging Diseases

Aging is a combination of degenerative changes that happen in living beings that do not have the capacity to constantly recover. Age is a main risk factor for most collective neurodegenerative diseases.  The most widely recognized rare condition that involves in Aging is Progeria, an extremely rare autosomal dominant genetic disorder in which symptoms approaching characteristics of aging are revealed at a very early age. Progeria is one of several progeroid syndromes. Those born with progeria typically live to their teenager to early twenties. It is a genetic condition that happens as a new mutation, and is hardly inherited, as carriers generally do not live to reproduce. Studies have demonstrated that 37.5% had conventional life expectancy, 25.7% potentially lethal during childbirth or before 5 years of age, 36.8% reduced life expectancy.
