We aimed to evaluate sarcopenia in patients with PD.
METHODS: One hundred non-demented PD patients, and 95 healthy subjects were included in the study. Avarage-Muscle mass, weight, bone mass, fat mass, basal metabolism rate (BMR), body mass index (BMI) of PD and control groups were measured using bioimpedance analysis.
RESULTS: There were statistically significant difference in average muscle mass of men and women in PD and control groups, 29,83±2,13kg/m2 and 31,96±1,66kg/m2,(p=0,000), and 25,43±2,16kg/m2 and 26,82±1,69kg/m2(p=0,002), respectively. There were statistically significant difference between weight, fat mass, bone mass, BMR and BMI in men in PD and control groups, 76,47±11,71 and 82,64±11,08 (p=0,005); 18,32±6,13 and 21,55±7,84 (p=0,01); 2,91±0,37 and 3,04±0,27 (p=0,03); 1679±236 and 1775±179 (p=0,01); 27,40±3,58 and 28,88±3,52 (p=0,02), respectively. In women there were statistically significant difference between weight and BMR in PD and control groups, 70,30±13,72 and 77,54±17,22 (p=0,04) and 1374±194 and 1482±244 (p=0,03); respectively. In PD group there was no significant correlation between average muscle mass and duration of the disease (r=0.96,p=0.349).
CONCLUSIONS: Our study indicates that…
