Some of them I take in the morning, some of them in the afternoon or early afternoon and then a few at night when I am ready to go to bed…my basic problems are diabetes and heart…and high blood pressure of course. What else? Arthritis. I elevate my legs to take care of the arthritis in the knees because they tell me that it is the changing weather…I try to watch my diet…the single thing that bothers me the most is my diminished capacity to do things that I particularly enjoy doing—a lot now depends on my wife…I think the primary concern I have got is weight management.

Mortality and hospitalization Although the simplest proxy for degree of morbidity is age (with older age associated with more multimorbidity), having more coexisting chronic conditions is associated with higher rates of mortality that is independent of age. Within populations of people with multimorbidity, mortality is higher among subgroups characterized by certain chronic conditions such as congestive heart failure, cancer, chronic lung disease, and advanced hepatic and renal diseases. Although more multimorbidity is clearly associated with lower socio-economic status that is associated with mortality, it is unclear whether the association between morbidity and mortality is greater in groups characterized by low socio-economic status.
