The World Health Organization has just approved ICD-10 codes for sarcopenia diagnosis, a major recognition of the importance of this condition across the continuum of care. This session will review Canadian and worldwide data on the prevalence and significance of sarcopenia, highlighting the role of nutrition with or without exercise interventions to tackle this syndrome.
