SARCOPENIA – THE IGNORED EPIDEMIC
Sarcopenia – defined as an age related loss of muscle mass and function – is a major public health threat. Millions of people have sarcopenia – both YOUNG and old! – and it impacts every aspect of your life, from increased risk of disease to being unable to simply function in ever day life. It’s THAT important!
Although loss of bone mass (osteoporosis) has been on the radar of main stream medicine for decades, sarcopenia is now starting to get the attention it should, by researchers and the medical profession in general. In this latest BrinkZone Radio, you will learn what sarcopenia is, what the major causes are, and how it’s prevented and or treated, with my guest, Dr. Lopez.
