Muscle mass loss estimated by using mixed-effect models analysis adjusted for age according to the investigated risk factors: (A) leisure physical activity (dotted line: ≥15 h/wk, solid line: <15 h/wk), (B) apparent free testosterone concentration (dotted line: ≥75 pmol/L, solid line: <75 pmol/L ), (C) parathyroid hormone concentration (dotted line: <45 pg/mL, solid line: ≥45 pg/mL), (D) diabetes (dotted line: nondiabetics, solid line: diabetics).

Predictive Parameters of Accelerated Muscle Loss in Men—MINOS Study
