If she doesn't appear to be suffering and the other fish aren't picking on her, there is no reason to put her down. It sounds as if she is getting old and maybe dealing with a degenerative condition.

No, unfortunately there is nothing to help her. She will progressively get worse until she can't swim properly anymore... that would be the time to consider putting her down.

Until she looks like she is having difficulty in swimming, or a hard time getting enough food.
