Sarcopenia is a major therapeutic challenge and a public healthpriority in both the US and Europe. More than two decades after theword was first used to define a distinct clinical condition, thedefinition of sarcopenia remains open for discussion,nd itsclinical relevance is still not fully understood. This bookprovides some answers. It is a valuable addition to theexisting literature, providing a one-stop shop for state-of-the-artinformation on a topic of particular relevance for geriatriciansand all those who care for the older population. Sarcopenia has serious health consequences of sarcopenia interms of frailty, disability, morbidity, and mortality. Identifyinghigh risk groups of older people is straightforward, but making adiagnosis is more difficult. Having addressed the definition ofsarcopenia the book therefore goes on to discuss current openquestions that concern the clinical management of thecondition. Chapters cover nosology, pathophysiology, clinicalidentification, and treatment: for example, is sarcopenia a normalpart of the ageing process? When does it become a disease state? Isit only a morphologic or functional abnormality, or is it anage-related disease? Epidemiological, clinical, diagnosticand therapeutic aspects of sarcopenia are covered, as well aspossible methods of prevention and treatment options. * Defines and explains the clinical relevance of sarcopenia * Covers all recent scientific evidence * Discusses treatment options * Considers ways of prevention Written by experts in the field from both the US and Europe,this book will be of practical interest to geriatricians,clinicians and professionals working in nursing homes, nutritionand sport medicine. It is also a valuable and comprehensivereference work for professionals, post-graduates and researchers onage-related diseases, disability, nutrition and geriatricmedicine.

Rezensionen
"Sarcopenia is defined as loss of muscle mass. Although addressed to gerontologists, the book is of interest to pediatricians and psychiatrists treating anorexia and chronic diseases." (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews, 1 September 2014)

"This book contains a substantial and recent bibliography, and it will provide stimulating reading for both clinicians and research workers who are seeking ways of enhancing physical function in the elderly." (Applied Physiology, Nutrition & Metabolism, 1 October 2012)
