Major chronic health conditions among

older Chinese adults are common.
Example:
Wu et al. (2013) conducted a study to estimate the prevalence of eight common chronic health conditions among older adults in China. They used data from the SAGE-China Wave 1, which included 13,157 people aged 50-plus years. Chronic medical conditions included angina, arthritis, asthma, stroke, diabetes, depression, chronic lung disease, and hypertension.
They concluded, “Findings from this study indicated that major chronic conditions were common, so prevention and early intervention targeting adults aged 50 years and older should be prioritized” (Wu et al. 2013, e74176).
