While it is more prevalent in older adults, adults of all ages are affected, with an overall prevalence of 15.9% of the U.S. population. Early diagnosis and treatment are vital to preserving and improving the health of those affected. In this webinar, you will learn how to identify and manage patients with sarcopenic obesity, as well as those at risk.
