    In old age

    Examples of common coexisting diseases in old age:

    "At old age" would be wrong, right?

    Thanks.

    Yes.
    But note:
    "This injury would be more serious at an older age [than that of the current patient]". Not "in an older age".
    "You're unfortunate to have these coexisting illness at such a young age". Not "in such a young age".
