Muscle Atrophy at High Altitude

Stress described as uncomfortable condition which can affect at any age and gender. One of the environmental stresses encounter by people ascending at high altitude is hypobaric hypoxia. High altitude associated hypobaric hypoxia disturbs various physiological and metabolic systems in the body in which one of the adverse effects is muscle atrophy. Hence, the present mini review presents an insight for mechanism involved in muscle protein loss and understanding of these pathways further provide the probable therapeutic interventions against high altitude associated muscle atrophy.
