Abstract

Objective To assess whether sensorimotor peripheral nerve function is associated with muscle power in community-dwelling older men. Design Longitudinal cohort study with 2.3±0.3 years of follow-up. Setting One clinical site. Participants Participants (n=372; mean age ± SD, 77.2±5.1y; 99.5% white; body mass index, 27.9±3.7kg/m2; power, 1.88±0.6W/kg) at 1 site of the Osteoporotic Fractures in Men Study (N=5994). Interventions Not applicable. Main Outcome Measures A nerve function ancillary study was performed 4.6±0.4 years after baseline. Muscle power was measured using a power rig. Peroneal motor nerve conduction amplitude, distal motor latency, and mean f-wave latency were measured. Sensory nerve function was assessed using 10-g and 1.4-g monofilaments and sural sensory nerve conduction amplitude and distal latency. Peripheral neuropathy symptoms at the leg and feet were assessed by self-report. Results After adjustments for age, height, and total body lean and fat mass, 1 SD lower motor (β=-.07, P
