Sarcopenia – What GPs Need to Know – Lecture CPD 1 Point


In this Healthed lecture, Prof Robin Daly explains that sarcopenia has only recently been formally recognized as a disease in and of itself, rather than as an aspect of other diseases.
This recognition should encourage GPs to increase their vigilance. It is common with ageing, sedentary lifestyle, metabolic and cardiovascular disease and should also be looked for in psychiatric conditions and with substance abuse. It carries inherent risks over and above these disease states.
