Sarcopenia

Sarcopenia is the progressive loss of skeletal muscle that comes with aging. Sarcopenia is thought to play a major role in the increased frailty and functional impairment that comes with age. Experts are beginning to develop a better understanding of the condition, leading to hope for therapies to treat it.
