Previous research has found an association between low skeletal muscle
mass and insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome‚ as well as an
association between low serum creatinine and type 2 diabetes.
Serum creatinine may be a surrogate marker of muscle mass‚ which
Norwegian researchers attempted to validate in a cross–sectional study
of approximately 1‚000 morbidly obese Caucasian patients.
