摘要

Aging is featured by the complex interrelationship among body composition, frailty status, and physical performance. The main aim of this study was to evaluate the association among serum insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), body composition, and physical function among community-dwelling middle-aged and elderly population in Taiwan. We conducted a cross-sectional study by using the data of I-Lan Longitudinal Aging Study, which recruited a total of 1833 community-dwelling people aged more than 50 years. Data of lean body mass (LBM), appendicular skeletal muscle mass (ASM), total fat mass (TFM), bone mineral density (BMD) of L-spine/hip, handgrip strength, walking speed, International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ), Charlson comorbidity index (CCI), serum levels of growth hormone, IGF-1, albumin, total cholesterol, triglyceride, blood urea nitrogen, and creatinine were retrieved for analysis. The mean age of participants was 63.9 ± 9.2 years, and 47.5% were men. The serum IGF-1 level was 140.7 ± 57.6 ng/mL in men and 131.4 ± 54.5 ng/mL in women. The estimated rates of IGF-1 decline with age were 1.88 ng/mL·year in men and 2.13 ng/mL·year in women. The prevalence of frailty was 6.8% and that of prefrailty was 40.4%. After adjusting for age, albumin, IPAQ, and CCI in multiple linear regression models, LogIGF-1 was positively correlated with LBM, ASM, ASM index, height, BMD, and handgrip strength, and was inversely correlated with weakness in both genders. In men, the LogIGF-1 level was positively correlated with weight, body mass index (BMI), waist circumference, and TFM. Higher serum IGF-1 was independently associated with more muscle mass, higher BMD, and better handgrip performance in both genders. The positive association of IGF-1 with BMI, weight, TFM, and waist circumference was found in men only. Further longitudinal study to evaluate the effect of serum IGF-1 on frailty incidence is needed for its causal-effect relationship.
