Background and aim Although respiratory muscle strength is known to decrease with age, the relationship between pulmonary function and sarcopenia remains to be examined. The present study aimed to determine the relationship between peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) and skeletal muscle mass/sarcopenia in community-dwelling older adults. Methods We utilized data from 427 older adults (age 74.4±5.3 years, men/women 157/270) who had participated in the 2015 Otassha Kenshin, a longitudinal study that excluded participants …
