Aims null Sarcopenia, one of the primary diseases of the older adult population, is a condition characterized by loss of skeletal muscle mass, strength and functionality. Due to its considerable economic impact, preventive interventions for sarcopenia play an important role in the older adult population. Urine includes many indicators of physiology and pathophysiology. Urine analysis is used to diagnose many different diseases. The goal of this cohort study was to examine the relationship betwee...

AIM The number of therapeutic endoscopic procedures in elderly individuals keeps increasing and this population has a high risk of adverse events related to sedation and general anesthesia. However, there is a paucity on data about the efficacy and safety of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in this population. METHODS In total, 417 consecutive ERCP procedures were performed in 362 patients between September 2018 and January 2020. Of these, 59 patients (74 sessions) were aged...

Aim null Serum fibroblast growth factor (FGF)-19 and FGF-21 levels have been reported to be associated with muscle hemostasis. This study aims to explore the relationship between the levels of these markers and sarcopenia. null Methods null In our single-center, cross-sectional study, patients over 65 years old presenting to the geriatric outpatient clinic were included. Patients with secondary sarcopenia were excluded. The Strength-Assistance with walking-Rising from a chair-Climbing stairs and...

AIM Diseases and bed rest may result in decreased muscle size and function. While exercise is recommended as a countermeasure, there are times when diseases or injuries make it difficult for the patient to partake in an exercise intervention. Pharmaceutical interventions using a myostatin inhibitor, BYM338, have been investigated as a way to increase or maintain muscle function. Of interest in the present analysis was the 6-min walk test. The 6-min walk test was selected, as there is an associat...

Aims null Coffee consumption has been suggested, in animal studies, to inhibit the progression of sarcopenia, possibly through its anti-inflammatory effects; however, few studies have been carried out in humans. We aimed to examine whether coffee consumption was related to indicators of sarcopenia in a Japanese population, and whether the association was mediated by reduced inflammation. null Methods null This study was a cross-sectional design. Participants were community residents (n = 6369) a...

Aim null Several genetic loci related to lean mass have been identified in healthy individuals by genome-wide association studies; however, the contribution of these loci to body composition in type 2 diabetes remains to be investigated. Here, we aimed to clarify the genetic determinants of body composition in individuals with type 2 diabetes. null Methods null A total of 176 Japanese outpatients (70 women and 106 men) with type 2 diabetes were studied using a cross-sectional design. Body compos...

Aim null This study aimed to assess the association between physical frailty and clinical outcomes among older patients hospitalized for pneumonia. null Methods null This study examined 852 consecutive patients hospitalized for pneumonia between October 2018 and September 2020. Patients who were null null Results null In total, 521 patients (median age, 80 years; interquartile range, 74-86 years) were included in the analyses, and were divided into the following two groups: robust group with SPP...
AIM As the number of frail and disabled older people increases in Japan, systems are needed to detect efficiently the populations at high risk in need of care and to allow early intervention. We investigated cut-off values for those physical functioning assessments adopted by AWGS 2019 associated with new or worsening long-term care insurance (LTCI) certification. METHODS We recruited 497 outpatients from our locomotive syndrome-frailty clinic. After excluding patients who had undergone orthoped...
