Healthy Ageing: Is It Inevitable That You Lose Muscle As You Age?

The human body changes physiologically as you age, and that includes your muscles. But why do some older adults tend to lose muscle strength, while others don’t? And how can we maintain good muscle health as we age? On this episode of Healthy Ageing, consultant geriatrician Dr Terence Ong weighs in on why we should talk about sarcopenia and whether it is inevitable that we will lose our muscles as we age.
