In the May issue of the Journals of Gerontology: Series A, our article on natural course of frailty components has been published. First author Sari Stenholm analyzed data from two cohort studies: the Italian InCHIANTI study and the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam. The frailty phenotype was used, and data with follow-up from 9 to 15 years were analyzed. The findings in both studies were quite consistent: exhaustion was already present 9 years before the onset of frailty, while weight loss is a late symptom of fraily, as it emerged at the onset of frailty.
