muscle loss

According to Dr Carol Tan, a geriatrician from The Good Life Co-operative at Mount Alvernia Hospital, “While muscle loss occurs naturally with ageing, it can be more severe or accelerated in people who do not exercise or eat a balanced diet to build and repair their muscles.”

Reduced strength, endurance and physiological function, an increased vulnerability to stress and falls, and health issues such as disability and memory problems are some of the characteristics of Frailty.
