  • Managing Disease-Related Lean Body Mass Loss through Clinical and Nutrition Interventions

    Friday, December 4, 2015 | 8:30 AM - 6:00 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by Abbott Nutrition Health Institute the Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science at the New York Academy of Sciences

    Adequate lean body mass plays a vital role in overall health. A reduction in lean body mass and strength affect mortality and quality of life and can increase time to recover and length of hospital stays. Recovering lean body mass which has been lost is difficult; however, comprehensive healthcare that emphasizes early diagnosis and treatments for lean body mass loss may play key mitigation roles. Clinicians have an opportunity to be agents of change in taking research to practice to treat age- and disease-related loss of lean body mass through innovative clinical and nutrition interventions.
