Epidemiology of sarcopenia among the elderly in New Mexico.
Muscle mass decreases with age, leading to "sarcopenia," or low relative muscle mass, in elderly people. Sarcopenia is believed to be associated with metabolic, physiologic, and functionalExpand

Longitudinal Studies on the Rate of Decline in Renal Function with Age
Serial creatinine clearances (5 to 14 studies) were obtained for 446 normal volunteers in the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging followed between 1958 and 1981. When those subjects with possibleExpand

Changes in Renal Function with Aging
SummaryThe most important clinical renal function to monitor with aging is the glomerular filtration rate (creatinine clearance). Most decisions on drug dosage can be based on this information aloneExpand

Association between blood pressure and the rate of decline in renal function with age.
A significant negative correlation (P less than 0.0001) exists between the mean blood pressure (MBP) and the rate of decline in creatinine clearance with time in years (BCr) in 446 subjects in theExpand

Osmolar renal concentrating ability in healthy young men and hospitalized patients without renal disease.
RENAL concentrating ability in response to an antidiuretic stimulus presumably is limited by a maximum urine osmotic pressure or osmotic urine-plasma gradient or ratio. Hence, the determination ofExpand
