Osteosarcopenic obesity (OSO) is a condition associated with adverse outcomes in older adults. Since it is a condition which includes three tissues (obesity, sarcopenia and osteopenia/osteoporosis), it requires simultaneous and multidisciplinary clinical interventions to revert it. Until this moment, there have been published review articles only focused on nutrition or physical activity. However, we believe that assembling the existing evidence on potential treatments (nutritional intervention with micro- and macronutrients), physical activity, farmacological treatment for osteopenia/osteoporosis, possible farmacological treatment for sarcopenia, and, finally, psychological interventions focused on the treatment of psychiatric comorbidities (such as anxiety or depression) will help healthcare providers to improve the body composition of older adults.
