The specialist especially talked about patients with sarcopenia. It is called age-related atrophic degenerative change in skeletal muscles. People with this condition gradually lose muscle mass and strength.
“In addition to effective regular physical activity, rational nutrition is also important in sarcopenia patients. An important role is given to the correction of protein intake. According to several expert groups, the daily protein intake level in healthy elderly people should be at least 1.0-1.2 g/kg body weight. It is recommended to increase protein intake to 1.0-1.5 g/kg body weight per day in patients with preserved kidney function (glomerular filtration rate or frailty syndrome with GFR not lower than 30 ml/min/1.73 m²).
