Metabolic Dysregulation in Frailty
Metabolic regulation involves the life-sustaining chemical reactions that occur within a living creature on and within the cellular level. When these complex, intertwined biological chemical reactions are no longer well-supported, then accelerated aging may begin to occur in the organism. This process interferes with cellular homeostasis and energy for physiological functions, and can result in metabolic dysregulation, which may present as symptomatic hallmarks of frailty over time: declining weight, declining strength, and declining energy.
