SAC Position Paper – Diet and Lifestyle Measures to Counterbalance Age-related Sarcopenia

Sarcopenia is part of the natural process of ageing. It happens to all of us. How soon it occurs, and to what extent, depends on a number of factors. The good news is a number of these factors are within our control.
Age-related sarcopenia is the loss of lean muscle mass, strength and/or muscle function associated with advancing age. Between the ages of 40 and 80 years around 30 to 50% of muscle mass can be lost. After the age of 50, muscle function is estimated to be reduced by 1 to 2% each year, and as much as 3% a year after the age of 60.
