In the 2023 edition of the NCPT, the Nutrition Diagnosis term Sarcopenia was introduced.  

Sarcopenia is defined in the NCPT as a syndrome characterized by low muscle strength, low muscle mass and low physical performance, which is linked to negative clinical outcomes. Sarcopenia could be primary (ie, related to ageing) or secondary (ie, related to disease, low physical activity, and/or poor nutrition). 

eNCPT subscribers can learn more about Sarcopenia and how to use the term in documentation by logging into the site and clicking here.
