Low muscle mass can cause complications over time
Fasting without understanding its effects can lead to loss of muscle 
 
New Delhi, 22 October 2018: As per a recently published review, low muscle mass is linked to an increased risk of serious health complications and decreased survival. There is growing evidence which suggests that muscle mass should be a key factor to be considered while evaluating a person's health status. This is more so in case of people living with a chronic disease. Those with less muscle had more surgical and post-operative complications, longer hospital stays, lower physical function, poorer quality of life and overall lower survival, indicated the study.

Low muscle mass can occur at any body weight, so someone who is normal weight may appear healthy when they can in fact lack muscle. Something as simple as the firmness of a person's handshake can give a lot of insight into their overall health. It is imperative to rebuild muscle with good nutrition, including protein, and proper exercise.
