Sarkopenie, übersetzt die Fleischarmut (griech. sárka = Fleisch, penia = Mangel, Armut), meint den altersbedingten und normalen Verlust an Skelettmuskelmasse, sofern keine Erkrankung oder eine strenge Diät als Ursachen vorliegen. Bei einem über der Alters- und Geschlechtsnorm liegenden Verlust der Muskelmasse kommt es jedoch zu einem deutlichen Verlust der Funktionskapazität des Herzkreislauf- und Stoffwechselsystems, was sich im Alltag in einer Abnahme der Kraftfähigkeit und Reduzierung der Gehgeschwindigkeit äußern kann.
