The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of sarcopenia using the skeletal muscle index (SMI) criteria in the Thai population. The secondary objective was to demonstrate factors influencing low SMI in this population. Femoral neck bone mass density (BMD) was measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (GE Lunar, Madison, WI, USA) in 435 urban and 397 rural subjects (334 men and 498 women) between 20 and 84 years of age.
