With the global increase in aging populations, a current and future key challenge is to improve health expectancy. It is well established that normal aging is associated with a loss of muscle mass (sarcopenia), with concomitant loss of muscle function and increased risk of falls, reduced ability to perform daily tasks and subsequent reduced quality of life. Therefore, a balanced and optimal protein–energy homeostasis is recognized as a major dietary-related determinant of healthy ageing. Current research suggests that both balanced diet and regular physical activity play key roles in maintenance of functional health and promotion of healthy ageing.
We are pleased to open the call for manuscript submission to Geriatrics focusing on these important issues in the areas of nutrition, physical activity and ageing.
