      Hello samsam, sarcopenia (the loss of muscle mass + muscle strength) is caused by lots of factors; insufficient protein intake may be just one of them…

      However, if I can show that how much protein we eat and how we eat it can impact on the progression of this condition, it may help with the formulation of advice/recommendations to slow its progression
