The Healthcare Costs of Sarcopenia in the United States
Objectives: To estimate the healthcare costs of sarcopenia in the United States and to examine the effect that a reduced sarcopenia prevalence would have on healthcare expenditures.
Skeletal muscle cutpoints associated with elevated physical disability risk in older men and women.
The purpose of this study was to determine skeletal muscle cutpoints for identifying elevated physical disability risk in older adults. Subjects included 4,449 older (> or = 60 years) participantsExpand
A randomized controlled trial of resistance exercise training to improve glycemic control in older adults with type 2 diabetes.
OBJECTIVE To determine the efficacy of high-intensity progressive resistance training (PRT) on glycemic control in older adults with type 2 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We performed aExpand
Aging of skeletal muscle: a 12-yr longitudinal study.
The present study examines age-related changes in skeletal muscle size and function after 12 yr. Twelve healthy sedentary men were studied in 1985-86 (T1) and nine (initial mean age 65.4 +/- 4.2 yr)Expand
Longitudinal muscle strength changes in older adults: influence of muscle mass, physical activity, and health.
The longitudinal changes in isokinetic strength of knee and elbow extensors and flexors, muscle mass, physical activity, and health were examined in 120 subjects initially 46 to 78 years old.Expand
Sarcopenia: current concepts.
Sarcopenia, the loss of muscle mass and strength with age, is becoming recognized as a major cause of disability and morbidity in the elderly population. Sarcopenia is part of normal aging and doesExpand
Skeletal muscle fiber quality in older men and women.
Whole muscle strength and cross-sectional area (WMCSA), and contractile properties of chemically skinned segments from single fibers of the quadriceps were studied in 7 young men (YM, 36.5 +/- 3. 0Expand
Sarcopenia with limited mobility: an international consensus.
A consensus conference convened by the Society of Sarcopenia, Cachexia and Wasting Disorders has concluded that "Sarcopenia, ie, reduced muscle mass, with limited mobility" should be considered anExpand
Strength training improves muscle quality and insulin sensitivity in Hispanic older adults with type 2 diabetes
Hispanics are at increased risk of morbidity and mortality due to their high prevalence of diabetes and poor glycemic control. Strength training is the most effective lifestyle intervention toExpand
Two independent alleles at 6q23 associated with risk of rheumatoid arthritis
To identify susceptibility alleles associated with rheumatoid arthritis, we genotyped 397 individuals with rheumatoid arthritis for 116,204 SNPs and carried out an association analysis in comparisonExpand
