Table 5 Results of the GEE analysis of handgrip strength asymmetry change and Mini-Mental State Examination scores

From: Association between change in handgrip strength and cognitive function in Korean adults: a longitudinal panel study

  1. *All variables in Table 2 were included in the GEE model. Handgrip strength asymmetry was calculated by subtracting lower handgrip strength from higher handgrip strength. The change of handgrip strength asymmetry between 2 years were grouped into Same/Increased and Decreased
