Decreased muscle mass - Vitality Hormone Clinic

What is decreased muscle mass?

Decreased muscle mass, known medically as sarcopenia, is a common condition characterized by loss of skeletal muscle tissue, leading to reduced strength, mobility, and quality of life. As we age, most adults lose approx. 3-8% of muscle mass per decade after age 30. This can eventually progress into severe muscle atrophy if left unchecked.

Some key signs of decreased muscle mass include:

Fortunately, sarcopenia can be slowed, stopped, or even reversed through proper nutrition and strength training. Experts recommend "progressive resistance training" 2-3x per week along with increased protein intake to rebuild muscle. Even into old age, studies show it's never too late to gain back lost muscle through simple lifestyle interventions.

"Patients ask me all the time - can I rebuild the muscle I've already lost? Absolutely! With today's modern therapies, significant muscle recovery at any age is achievable" ~ Dr. Smith, Vitality Hormone Clinic
