  1. ASMI Appendicular skeletal muscle index, MM Muscle mass, NMM Normal muscle mass, LMM Low muscle mass
  2. Model 1: no covariates were adjusted
  3. Model 2: gender, age and race were adjusted
  4. Model 3: gender, age, race, BMI, hypertension, diabetes, white blood cell count, hemoglobin, total calcium, phosphorus, uric acid, total cholesterol, triglycerides and 25[OH]D were adjusted
