Is a condition characterized by progressive loss of muscle mass and muscle weakness associated with aging.
It often starts to appear after the age of 50, though it can begin to appear in some people as early as age 40. Sarcopenia can have a significant impact on a person’s ability to perform daily activities, such as lifting heavy objects or walking for extended periods of time.
It can also increase the risk of falls and other health problems related to physical inactivity. While there is no cure for sarcopenia, steps can be taken to delay or prevent muscle loss and improve strength and functional capacity.
These steps include regular physical exercise, a healthy diet, and protein supplementation.
