An Overview of Frailty and Sarcopenia in Older People
Physical frailty and sarcopenia are two closely associated conditions commonly observed in older people, which are often precursors to disabilities. These two conditions are also associated with adverse health outcomes. Therefore, strategies are needed to identify, prevent and treat physical frailty and sarcopenia with the aim of improving clinical outcomes. Treatments to reverse physical frailty and sarcopenia or improve clinical outcomes should be multicomponent which integrates physical activity and nutritional care. Further research is needed to develop effective multicomponent interventions for the treatment of frailty and sarcopenia.
