Abstract

Obesity (as defined by body mass index) has not been associated consistently with higher mortality in older adults. However, total body mass includes fat and muscle, which have different metabolic effects. This study was designed to test the hypothesis that greater muscle mass in older adults is associated with lower all-cause mortality.

Score in context

This research output has an Altmetric score of 301. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This score was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 13 February 2016.
All research outputs
#6,240
of 4,753,549 outputs
Outputs from American Journal of Medicine
#5
of 2,456 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#342
of 114,076 outputs
Outputs of similar age from American Journal of Medicine
#2
of 27 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,753,549 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 99th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,456 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean score of 7.2. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this score to the 114,076 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 27 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 92% of its contemporaries.
