With the passing of time and aging, our body presents itself with changes.
Frailty is a non specific state during which we may be vulnerable, this is due to the physiological changes our body presents with the phenomenon of aging.
These may not be related directly to any disease status, however, some elderly patients may only be frail with no known conditions. And we do not only refer to the physical components of frailty, there is also a psychological, cognitive and social alterations that may contribute to this syndrome, so a multidisciplinary action is considered. Frailty presented in the aging population may be characterized by easy tiring, reduced libido, diminished muscle mass and strength, mood changes and vulnerability to disease.
Aging is associated with a dysregulation of the immune system, with an increase in pro-inflammatory components, which maintain the body in a chronic inflammatory state. Chronic inflammatory status blocks the repair, turnover, and adaptation of many tissues, including muscles and bones. Muscular degeneration, seen in frailty, called sarcopenia, may be due to the blocking effect of inflammation in the turnover effect in muscle mass.
In general, we may say that with age, we increase our inflammatory state that could cause alterations in our system, blocking or inhibiting important processes in our regenerative capabilities.
