Frailty is a complex subject, and all aspects of frailty are intertwined. This article identifies and discusses the individual aspects of frailty. These aspects, including sarcopenia, nutrition, obesity, relative strength, inflammatory markers, osteopenia and osteoporosis, aerobic capacity, absolute strength, balance, and prevention of frailty, must be reunited, albeit in varying combinations, if the effects of frailty on women are to be understood and treated. This article does not exhaust the topic, but covers what the authors consider to be the major issues.
