Abstract

In the last eight years the use of muscle function tests as indices of nutrition status has become increasingly popular. Indeed, malnourished patients often present symptoms of muscle weakness and fatigue accompanied by ponderal loss. During poor nutritional intake, skeletal muscle mass is reduced as it represents the chief source of glycogenetic amino acids. These changes are also accompanied by biochemical and body compositional alterations. In the light of the present literature, there seems to be a need for normal values corrected for age, particularly for those age groups above 60. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of age on muscle function and to obtain normal values for different age groups.
