Objectives:The aims of this study were to investigate the relationship between sarcopenia, dietary intake, nutritional indices and hip bone mineral density (BMD) in the elderly, and to estimate the risk of low BMD due to specific independent predictor thresholds.Subjects and methods:Body mass index (BMI), serum albumin, energy and protein intake were studied in 352 elderly outpatients (216 women aged 73.5±5.3 years and 136 men aged 73.9±5.6 years). BMD at different hip sites and appendicular… CONTINUE READING
