Who are the participants who will take part in the NUTRIMAL project?

We are currently looking for men and women to take part who are:

  • 65 years of age and over
  • Non-smokers
  • Have low muscle mass and/or have low strength (we will test this)

Older adults group

Unfortunately men and women are not eligible if they:

  • Regularly perform strenuous weightlifting exercise (why?)
  • Have diabetes (why?)
  • Have advanced kidney disease (why?)
  • Have a gut disease that impair their ability to properly absorb their food (why?)
  • Are on certain medications (i.e. high dose anti-inflammatories, hormone replacements or hormone suppressants) (why?)
  • Have had substantial (>3 kg) weight loss in the past 3 months (why?)
  • Have normal muscle mass and strength (why?)
