Creatinine/(cystatin C× body weight) ratio is associated with skeletal muscle mass index

We have previously reported that the creatinine (Cre) to cystatin C (CysC) ratio is associated with height-adjusted skeletal muscle mass index (SMI). However, weight-adjusted SMI is reported to be a more useful marker of insulin sensitivity than height-adjusted SMI. Thus, we hypothesized that the creatinine to (cystatin C× body weight [BW]) relationship (Cre/[CysC× BW]) might be associated with weight-adjusted SMI. In this cross-sectional study of 169 males and 132 females, a body composition analyzer was used and the weight-adjusted …
