Health and Quality of Life After Age 60: 16

Sarcopenia is a condition characterized by the progressive loss of muscle mass and strength associated with aging. The word derives from the Greek “sarx” (flesh) and “penia” (loss). Therefore, sarcopenia literally means “loss of flesh.”

Impacts of Sarcopenia on Health:

  1. Reduction in Quality of Life: Due to decreased mobility and autonomy.
  2. Increased Risk of Falls: Due to postural instability and muscle weakness.
  3. Metabolic Health: Associated with insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.
  4. Cardiovascular Complications.
  5. Mortality.

Origins of Sarcopenia:

  1. Natural Aging: Loss of muscle fibers.
  2. Sedentary Lifestyle: Lack of physical activity.
  3. Hormonal Changes.
  4. Chronic Diseases: Such as COPD.
  5. Chronic Inflammation.


  1. Muscle Mass Assessment: Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA), Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA), Computed Tomography (CT).
  2. Muscle Strength Assessment: Handgrip Dynamometry and Knee Extension Strength Test.
  3. Physical Performance Assessment: Gait Speed Test, Chair Stand Test, and Balance Test.


  1. Routine Exercises.
  2. Adequate Nutrition and Supplementation: Amino acids and vitamin D.
  3. Treatment of Underlying Diseases: Management of medical conditions that may contribute to muscle loss.

Sarcopenia is part of aging, but with appropriate actions, it is possible to mitigate its effects and improve health and quality of life after the age of 60.
