In both sexes, MCV, MCH, ESR, CRP,AST, ALT, gamma GTP, ALP, BUN, total cholesterol were significantly higher in the elderly than in the controls. And lymphocyte count(%), total bilirubin, direct bilirubin, total protein, albumin, T3 were significantly lower in the elderly than in the controls(P<0.05). Hemoglobin, Hct, platelet count, T4 were significantly lower only in the male elderly, and eosinophil count(%), creatinine were significantly higher only in the female elderly(P<0.05).
