Risk of secondary sarcopenia in Europeans with fibromyalgia according to the EWGSOP2 guidelines: systematic review and meta-analysis.


Rodríguez-Lumbreras L, Ruiz-Cárdenas JD, Murcia-González MA


Fibromyalgia is characterized by chronic widespread pain accompanied by reduced levels of physical activity and associated comorbidities such as overweight and obesity which have been associated to sarcopenia development. The aim of this systematic review is to ascertain whether Europeans with fibromyalgia show a reduction in sarcopenia determinants compared to apparently-healthy controls and to determine the risk of sarcopenia and its possible risk factors (PROSPERO: CRD42023439839).
