The Doctors: Lost Muscle Mass & Strength Decline
By the time you’re 70, you could lose up to 1/4 of your muscle! Patricia, a 58-year-old woman, shared with The Doctors that she was an incredibly active woman until she suffered a back injury years ago. She was barely able to walk and struggled just to cook because it hurt to be on her feet for more than 15 minutes at a time. Because of that, she lost muscle mass, and while she’s slowly recovering, she doesn’t have much of an appetite. She was hoping for advice on getting strength and muscle back.
