Visceral fat accumulation and prevalence of sarcopenia, low skeletal muscle mass, and weak grip strength. The subjects were divided into two groups: visceral fat accumulation (−) group and visceral fat accumulation (+) group. Visceral fat accumulation was defined as eVFA ≥ 100 cm2. p value by Fischer’s exact test. SMI skeletal muscle index = appendicular skeletal muscle mass/height2 (kg/m2). Definition of sarcopenia, low skeletal muscle mass and weak grip strength are described in “Methods” section. NS not significant
