A recent study- the results of which have been published in the journal Clinical Interventions in Aging-
has found that Sarcopenia and obesity(independently, but especially when occurring together)
can heighten the risk of cognitive function impairments later in life.
Based on the study's findings,
Dr. Galvin and his colleagues are particularly concerned that a mix of Sarcopenia and excess body fat in older adults
could become a serious public health issue, so they believe that any significant changes in body mass composition should be closely monitored to prevent negative health outcomes.
