CONTEXT The relationship between functional disability and reproductive hormones and whether it is mediated by muscle mass and strength in older men are unclear. OBJECTIVES The objective of the study was to identify the relationships between hormones and change in functional disability over a 2-year follow-up and to examine whether muscle mass and strength explain any of the observed relationships. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS A total of 1318 men aged 70 years and older from the… CONTINUE READING
