Abstract

Research suggests that poor nutrition is an underlying cause of sarcopenia and frailty, and that dietary interventions may prevent or treat age-related loss of muscle mass and strength. In February 2018, the International Conference on Frailty and Sarcopenia Research Task Force explored the current status of research on nutritional interventions for sarcopenia as well as gaps in knowledge, including whether nutritional supplements must be combined with physical activity, and the role of nutritional intervention in sarcopenic obese individuals. The lack of consistency across trials in terms of target populations, assessments, health-care settings, control groups, and choice of outcomes has made it difficult to draw meaningful conclusions from recent studies. The Task Force recommended large randomized controlled trials in heterogeneous, real-world populations to enable sub-group analysis. The field also needs to reach consensus on what outcomes are most meaningful and what represents clinically meaningful change.
