Dengyan Lei


Sarcopenia is also known as skeletal muscular dystrophy, which has a great relationship with aging. The core symptoms are further reduction of skeletal muscle mass and significant decline of strength. As the name implies, sarcopenia mainly occurs in the elderly, which often has a huge negative impact on the health of older people. Therefore, this paper makes an in-depth study of the cases of actual senile sarcopenia, so as to better analyze the risk factors of patients with such diseases and how to carry out effective TCM nursing.
