Abstract

As the life expectancy increases, sarcopenia grows in large proportions, the diagnosis and identification of individuals with sarcopenia at early stages permit the development of treatment plans and approaches that include lifestyle modification, Diet control, and physical exercises. In Romania, sarcopenia is a field of study which has been studied on a very small scale, possible ways to improve the healthcare levels of this disease and reach other countries require a better knowledge and understanding of the disease. Very few kinds of literature studied the prevalence of sarcopenia in geriatric patients. The goal of the literature is to evaluate the linkage between sarcopenia and osteoporosis by the use of CT examination and SARC-F Questionnaire in patients of sixty-two years old. Prompt diagnosis and proper management of sarcopenia and osteoporosis guarantees an improved assessment of the overall health of geriatric patients and further improves their quality of life and successful aging.
