Authors: Gyorgy Baffy

Abstract

Sarcopenia is defined as a generalized and progressive loss of skeletal muscle mass, strength and function (1). Sarcopenia, while initially described in the aging general population, affects many patients with various chronic diseases in all age groups. Diminished muscle volume and performance is associated with lower endurance, frailty, disability, and poor disease outcomes.
