According tomedia reports, since ancient Greece, doctors and philosophers have been debating whether aging is a disease or a natural process, and many authors of Hippocratic Corpus argue that physical aging leads to weakness, disability and death. Therefore, aging is considered to be an incurable disease. But Roman physician Gallen says that while disease is an unhealthy state of the human body, it is not the same as aging, which is a common phenomenon, so aging is a natural process, not a disease. Today’s dicon interpretation of aging still exists and is the central framework for people to explain the concept of aging and to come up with solutions.

Unlike the authors of the Gallen and Hippocratic collections, modern scientists have discovered some of the biological mechanisms that lead to aging, in which cell aging theory provides important insights into the interpretation of dicon. When cells enter the aging phase (aging), a series of inflammatory factors and enzymes are released to break down the tissue in which the cells are located, causing the immune cells to reach the aging cells and kill them, but if the process fails, the senescent cells accumulate, gradually changing the tissuethey they are in, causing the body to make degenerative changes. These changes are closely related to aging in the body.
Cell aging is common in every tissue of the body and runs throughout a person’s life, and when senescent cells accumulate on the skin, wrinkles are considered a “natural change”, however, when aging cells accumulate in the heart and blood vessels, leading to calcification of blood vessels, we call them “cardiovascular disease.” In fact, this is a wrong logic and classification, cell aging does not directly affect complex pathology and disease.
Why do wrinkles are natural?
Aging changes and wrinkles are an occasional coding classification problem, so an international team of researchers recommends changing the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Diseases (ICD), which first emerged in the 19th century and is regularly updated. It provides code for classifying and reporting medical diagnoses and procedures, and is key to understanding the causes of disease and death around the world.
This classification system derives from the sub-groups of the definition of pathology and disease, and the dicon of “aging is a natural process” and “Aging is a disease” means that the changes in aging are random, that they are incomplete and inaccurate, and that the two views overlap.
These latest recommendations are intended to demonstrate that the pathology and diseases of the International Classification of Diseases are closely linked to ageing and to ensure that the associated effects of degenerative changes are taken into account. This will indicate that all age-related pathology involves disease and confusion in body tissue, but this has not occurred so far, for example: a genetic code associated with age-related muscle consumption (hypomycism), but no genetic code can cover aging and debilitating organs.
As a result, the classification and assessment of an aging “disease” based on the severity of organ damage cannot be classified and treated to another disease, and due to the lack of classification and phased observation, researchers will not be able to record physical changes in pathological aging, meaning that treatment needs may be overlooked, such as organ aging, atrophy and calcification. These conditions were not assessed as serious losses.
Current anti-aging treatments include diet and exercise, while several medications can also be taken to prevent and reverse aging, but under the current World Health Organization’s International Classification of Diseases standards, opportunities to address these issues may be missed.
This is a particular concern because the first drugs for the main mechanism of aging are in clinical trials, and the researchers recommend a classification of human tissue aging to facilitate a detailed classification of the disease status of all tissues, organs and glands.
In addition, the researchers proposed a complete phased observation system similar to that of tumor applications, which aims to ensure that pathology in all elderly patients is identified, documented and treated where possible.
