Age Typical Associations between Skeletal Muscle Mass and Bone Mass among Healthy Women

Age Typical Associations between Skeletal Muscle Mass and Bone Mass among Healthy Women

Human body composition changes through the process of ageing. Beside a well documented increase in fat mass, bone mass and muscle mass decline progressively, resulting in pathologically deceased skeletal muscle mass, i.e. sarcopenia and osteoporosis, in the worst case. Both reduced bone density and reduced muscle mass have dramatic consequences, such as impaired functional performance, increased risk of falls, and consequently, an increased risk of fragility fractures.
