How does aging affect my muscles?
Vonda Wright, MD, Orthopedic Surgery, answeredAccording to a survey developed by Abbott Labs and the AGS Foundation for Health in Aging, nine out of 10 people think that feeling weaker is the worst part of aging. Despite this, many people are not taking the critical steps to ensure their more than 650 muscles remain strong and healthy. Clinical research shows that starting at age 40, we begin to lose 8 percent of our muscle mass per decade. This loss rises to 15 percent by our seventh decade, which can lead to weakness, falls, low energy, and fat accumulation.
