BACKGROUND Sarcopenia is associated with disability, morbidity, and mortality. Lower birth weight is associated with reduced muscle mass and strength in older people, suggesting that developmental influences are important in sarcopenia. However, underlying mechanisms are unknown. Our objective was to determine whether low birth weight is associated with altered skeletal muscle morphology in older men. METHODS Ninety-nine men with historical records of birth weight (≤3.18 kg and ≥3.63 kg… CONTINUE READING
