Frailty, characterized by reduced physical activity capacity, slow gait speed, unintentional weight loss, muscle weakness, and exhaustion is a major health concern in the aging population, increasing the risk for disability, institutionalization, and death. A recent study of nearly 2,000 Spanish adults 60+ years old examined the relationship between added sugars from habitual diet and frailty risk. Different results were seen for added sugars from processed foods (e.g. sugar-sweetened beverages and pastries) vs. foods with natural sugars like fruits, vegetables, and milk.
