BACKGROUND Findings regarding dietary acid-base balance and muscle loss were mainly reported in Caucasian populations and seldom documented in Chinese population with different dietary habits. This prospective study examined such association in 3,122 Chinese community-dwelling older people aged 65 and over in Hong Kong. METHODS Baseline dietary intakes were assessed using a validated food frequency questionnaire. Estimated net endogenous acid production (NEAP) was calculated using Frassetto's… CONTINUE READING
