Loss of muscle mass

What is loss of muscle mass?

Loss of muscle mass, known as muscle atrophy, occurs when muscle fibers shrink and strength declines due to inactivity or aging. This leads to the loss of skeletal muscle tissue.

Common causes include lack of physical activity, poor nutrition, illnesses, injuries, and getting older. As we age, muscle strength, mass and function can decline - this is called age-related muscle loss or sarcopenia. It's a common condition that can start in your 30s and progresses in your 40s and beyond.
