  • OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of low-energy diet-induced weight loss on lower-extremity muscle mass and knee muscle strength in obese patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA), and the associations of these effects. METHODS We studied 159 obese patients with knee OA and available data from body composition analysis that had been performed using dual x-ray absorptiometry scanning and isometric muscle strength testing of the knee in extension and in flexion. The data had been obtained as… CONTINUE READING
