Sarcopenia, a progressive and generalized skeletal muscle disorder that involves the accelerated loss of muscle mass and function, affects between 10-40% of adults over the age of 70. Support the growing number of elderly people with mobility conditions, like sarcopenia, by offering optimized medical nutrition solutions.
Preserving muscle health and decreasing the risk of muscle loss is becoming increasingly relevant as the number of sarcopenia and cancer cachexia cases rise worldwide. This whitepaper outlines the emerging role of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA in supporting individuals experiencing muscle loss as the result of aging or disease.
To support those at high risk of disease-related malnutrition and facilitate improved holistic care, medical nutrition is fundamental. Improving the accessibility of tailored nutritional solutions starts with healthcare professionals, responsible for malnutrition screening and the prescription of specialized medical nutrition solutions. To explore risks and opportunities to providing the best nutritional care to patients, DSM initiated a global survey assessing the attitudes and behaviors of healthcare professionals towards the screening and management of disease-related malnutrition.
