Assessment and management of older people with sarcopenia
Assessment and management of older people with sarcopenia
Sarcopenia, the loss of skeletal muscle mass and function with age, is common in older people. It is associated with increased morbidity and mortality, and a greater risk of admission to hospital and care homes. This article identifies the risk factors and consequences of sarcopenia, and describes how nurses and GPs can recognise patients at particular risk of developing the condition. Evidence for the management of sarcopenia is discussed with regard to lifestyle and potential future therapeutic developments

Abstract

Sarcopenia, the loss of skeletal muscle mass and function with age, is common in older people. It is associated with increased morbidity and mortality, and a greater risk of admission to hospital and care homes. This article identifies the risk factors and consequences of sarcopenia, and describes how nurses and GPs can recognise patients at particular risk of developing the condition. Evidence for the management of sarcopenia is discussed with regard to lifestyle and potential future therapeutic developments
