Falls, fractures, and physical frailty are major geriatric outcomes interconnected by known risk factors. More recently, terms such as “sarcopenic obesity” and “sarco-osteoporosis” have highlighted the links between age-related metabolic changes affecting bone, muscle, and fat. The relationships are multi-factorial with interplay between physical activity, micronutrient availability, and genetic contributions. Learning Objective: (1) describeon cutting-edge research highlighting implications for new intervention targets and clinical management.
