Sarcopenia

Sarcopenia
Sarcopenia
Sarcopenia is a condition which is characterized by loss of muscle mass, muscle strength and muscle functional impairment with ageing. The definition of sarcopenia has been through various permutations, however, an enormous recent breakthrough is the inclusion of the condition in the ICD-10 classification of diseases. This chapter will cover the background issues regarding definition before describing the epidemiology of the disease according to human and environmental factors. It will then provide a practical guide for the assessment of sarcopenia in a clinical setting and finish with advice on present treatment and the exciting frontiers of future therapies.

Abstract

Sarcopenia is a condition which is characterized by loss of muscle mass, muscle strength and muscle functional impairment with ageing. The definition of sarcopenia has been through various permutations, however, an enormous recent breakthrough is the inclusion of the condition in the ICD-10 classification of diseases. This chapter will cover the background issues regarding definition before describing the epidemiology of the disease according to human and environmental factors. It will then provide a practical guide for the assessment of sarcopenia in a clinical setting and finish with advice on present treatment and the exciting frontiers of future therapies.
