SARCOPENIA IS INCREASED IN PARKINSON'S DISEASE

 CLICK HERE FOR A PRINTABLE OR WHITE BACKGROUND VERSION OF THIS ARTICLE

Sarcopenia is the loss of muscle mass, strength and function related to ageing. Sarcopenia and frailty are found in up to one-third of the general elderly population. Both are associated with major adverse health outcomes such as nursing home placement, disability, decreased quality of life. For more information go to : Sarcopenia

In people who have Parkinson's Disease who were in care the prevalence of sarcopenia was found to be much higher, as it was 55% and only 8% in people who did not have Parkinson's Disease. Frailty was detected in 35% of people with Parkinson's Disease.

In those people with Parkinson's Disease who were not in care, 33% had sarcopenia and 22% had frailty. Both sarcopenia and frailty were significantly associated with longer disease duration of Parkinson's Disease, higher motor impairment, higher Hoehn and Yahr stages, decreased quality of life, frequency of falls, a higher non-motor symptom burden, and higher care levels. Exercise, or dietary changes, increased intake of high protein foods, or use of certain drugs can reverse sarcopenia or to prevent it from occurring. For more information go to : Sarcopenia
