Ep. 375 AMA #9: Aging Gracefully: Avoiding Muscle Loss and Sarcopenia with Cynthia Thurlow, NP

Today, we have AMA number 9.
This episode is particularly significant to me as I discuss the recent fall and rapid decline of my father, which I believe could have been prevented.
My father was a thin and reasonably healthy man who became increasingly sedentary later in life. He grew weaker and became frailer, and a series of falls resulted in multiple brain bleeds. Despite hospitalization, he ultimately chose comfort care and passed away.
By sharing his story, I hope to inspire others to prioritize physical activity, proper nutrition, and strength training to prevent similar outcomes.
Your responses and thoughtful questions are deeply appreciated. Stay tuned for today’s AMA, focusing on preventing sarcopenia in older adults.
