Background/Aims: It is not known whether sarcopenia is associated with levels of kidney function in community-dwelling adults. Methods: Subjects were adult Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey participants in whom bioimpedance was performed (n = 13,770). Class I sarcopenia was defined as a skeletal mass index of 1–2 standard deviations below and class II sarcopenia as <2 standard deviations below young adult values. Results: A monotonic association existed between increasing…

Evaluation of Sarcopenia in Renal Transplant Recipients
TLDR
Handgrip, basal metabolic rate, free fat mass, and total body water were significantly lower in patients with sarcopenia in comparison with those without sarc Openia, which may develop at an earlier age in RTR.
Evaluation of physical activity in sarcopenic conditions of kidney transplantation recipients
TLDR
The data indicate that physical activity is restricted under presarcopenia and sarcopenia after kidney transplantation, which may become more crucial to improve the kidney survival and lifetime prognosis of the kidney transplant recipients.
Association between Sarcopenia and Dipstick Proteinuria in the Elderly Population: The Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys 2009–2011
TLDR
Sarcopenia increased the proteinuria risk in elderly participants without CKD, even after adjustment for obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome, regardless of comorbidities.
Sarcopenia is an independent predictor of hospitalization in chronic kidney disease outpatients
TLDR
Sarc Openia and presarcopenia, which were defined using the ASM/wt index and handgrip strength, predicted a poorer, hospitalization-free survival in CKD patients.
Sarcopenia in chronic kidney disease: what have we learned so far?
TLDR
Differences in conceptual definition of sarcopenia in the elderly and in CKD are discussed, as well as etiology of sarc Openia, prevalence, outcome, and interventions that attempted to reverse the loss of muscle mass, strength and mobility in CKd and ESKD patients are described.
Prevalence of sarcopenia in community-dwelling older adults using the updated EWGSOP2 definition according to kidney function and albuminuria
TLDR
Sarcopenia is common among community-dwelling older adults, especially among those with more advanced CKD categories, with prevalence estimates differing slightly depending on the equation used for the estimation of glomerular filtration rate; as well as amongst those with higher albuminuria categories.

Epidemiology of sarcopenia among the elderly in New Mexico.
TLDR
Some of the first estimates of the extent of the public health problem posed by sarcopenia are provided, independent of ethnicity, age, morbidity, obesity, income, and health behaviors.
Prevalence of sarcopenia and predictors of skeletal muscle mass in healthy, older men and women.
TLDR
Sarcopenia is common in adults over the age of 65 years and increases with age in women and men and interventions to target nutrition, strength training, and testosterone replacement therapy should be further investigated for their role in preventing muscle loss with age.
Renal insufficiency and subsequent death resulting from cardiovascular disease in the United States.
TLDR
This study indicates that, in a representative sample of the United States general population, renal insufficiency is independently associated with increased cardiovascular disease-related and all-cause mortality rates.
Mild renal insufficiency is associated with increased cardiovascular mortality: The Hoorn Study.
TLDR
Mild to moderate loss of renal function is strongly associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular mortality and does not appear to involve common risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes or hyperhomocysteinemia.
Prevalence of chronic kidney disease and decreased kidney function in the adult US population: Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.
TLDR
CKD is common and warrants improved detection and classification using standardized criteria to improve outcomes, and CCr estimates showed a steeper decline with age and were lower in non-Hispanic blacks.
Skeletal muscle cutpoints associated with elevated physical disability risk in older men and women.
TLDR
Future applications of these cutpoints include the comparison of morbidity risk in older persons with normal muscle mass and those with sarcopenia, the determination and comparison of sarc Openia prevalences, and the estimation of health-care costs attributable to sarcopenian disease.
Chronic kidney disease awareness, prevalence, and trends among U.S. adults, 1999 to 2000.
TLDR
Overall CKD prevalence was similar in both surveys (9% using ACR > 30 mg/g for persistent microalbuminuria; 11% in 1988 to 1994 and 12% in 1999 to 2000 using gender-specific ACR cutoffs) and awareness in the U.S. population is low.
Skeletal muscle strength as a predictor of all-cause mortality in healthy men.
TLDR
Survival analysis examined the impact of grip strength and rate of change in strength on all-cause mortality over 40 years and found that in men <60 years, rate of loss of strength was more important than the actual levels, which persisted when muscle mass was considered.
Low vitamin D and high parathyroid hormone levels as determinants of loss of muscle strength and muscle mass (sarcopenia): the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam.
TLDR
The results of this prospective, population-based study show that lower 25-OHD and higher PTH levels increase the risk of sarcopenia in older men and women.
