- The effect of obesity combined with low muscle strength on decline in mobility in older persons: results from the InCHIANTI studyS Stenholm
Longitudinal Studies Section, Clinical Research Branch, National Institute on Aging, Baltimore, MD 21225, USA
Int J Obes (Lond) 33:635-44. 2009..We examined whether obese persons with low muscle strength experience significantly greater declines in walking speed and mobility than persons with only obesity or low muscle strength...
- Joint association of obesity and metabolic syndrome with incident mobility limitation in older men and women--results from the Health, Aging, and Body Composition StudySari Stenholm
Longitudinal Studies Section, Clinical Research Branch, National Institute on Aging, Harbor Hospital, 3001 South Hanover Street, Baltimore, MD 21225, USA
J Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci 65:84-92. 2010..Although both obesity and the metabolic syndrome (MetS) are known risk factors for decline in physical function, the joint association of obesity and metabolic alterations with risk of incident mobility limitation is unknown...
- Adipocytokines and the metabolic syndrome among older persons with and without obesity: the InCHIANTI studySari Stenholm
Clinical Research Branch, National Institute on Aging, 3001 S Hanover Street, Baltimore, MD 21225, USA
Clin Endocrinol (Oxf) 73:55-65. 2010..The purpose of this study was to: (1) examine the role of adipocytokines in the association between obesity and the MetS and (2) to determine whether the association is different in obese and non-obese persons...
- Secular trends in body weight in older men born between 1877 and 1941: the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of AgingSari Stenholm
National Institute on Aging, Clinical Research Branch, Harbor Hospital, 3001 S Hanover Street, Baltimore, MD 21225, USA
J Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci 65:105-10. 2010..However, it is not known whether higher body weight is maintained in the very old and in the years prior to death. The present study examines whether there are secular trends in body weight in old age among three birth cohorts...
- Anabolic and catabolic biomarkers as predictors of muscle strength decline: the InCHIANTI studySari Stenholm
National Institute on Aging, Clinical Research Branch, Longitudinal Studies Section, Baltimore, Maryland 21225, USA
Rejuvenation Res 13:3-11. 2010..This study aims to examine whether high levels of multiple catabolic and low levels of multiple anabolic biomarkers predict accelerated decline of muscle strength...
