Low skeletal muscle mass (LMM) is a criterion to define both sarcopenia and malnutrition. Muscle mass varies with gender, height, weight or fat mass, and many indices of adjusted-muscle mass have been proposed. We aimed to find reference cut-off points of the skeletal muscle mass index (SMMI) adjusted for weight and body mass index (BMI) in Turkish population.
