Abstract

Aging and type 2 diabetes (T2DM) are associated with an increased risk of sarcopenia. Diagnosis of sarcopenia is commonly done using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) in specialized settings. Another available method for assessing body composition is direct segmental multi-frequency bioelectrical impedance analysis (DSMF-BIA). Here, we examine the accuracy of a DSMF-BIA (InBody-770) for assessing body composition in older adults with T2DM when compared to DXA.
