Nutrition status mediates the association between cognitive decline and sarcopenia

A path analysis using the SEM framework. Note. This framework shows that the estimate coefficient of cognitive decline to sarcopenia was 0.02, having a positive influence. The estimate coefficient of cognitive decline to nutrition status was -0.26, having a negative influence. The estimate coefficient of nutrition status to sarcopenia was -0.29, having a negative influence. Age, gender and ethnic groups have different estimate coefficient to the cognitive decline. nutrition status and sarcopenia. P value of all the pathway shown in framework were significant.
