Default Aging Dwarf

Hello

My dwarf Loki is 17 months old and it's not something I want to think of, but what is the life expectancy for these little creatures? I lost my Syrian at only 16 months old (unknown cause) and my little Loki has just come off a months course of antibiotics again for discoloured urine. Thankfully touch wood everything seems to have settled down.
I remember reading something about less protein for older hamsters, do people change their diets or just give high protein treats less often. Loki loves his mealworms and green veg, should I start to lesson these and if so, how much is suitable?

Thanks guys.
