Abstract

Background: Frailty as a result of decreased in age-related physiological systems that causes change in health status vulnerabilities that can be triggered by minor stressor events. One of the factors related to frailty is body mass index (BMI).

Objective: We aimed to examine the correlation between BMI and frailty of elderly men in Pemecutan Village, West Denpasar District.

Methods: A cross-sectional analytic study was conducted in Busung Yeh Kangin and Busung Yeh Kauh Banjar, Pemecutan Village, West Denpasar District. Data were collected after informed consent had been obtained through interview methods, grip strength, walking speed and anthropometric measurements. Interviews, anthropometry and frailty was assessed by Frailty Phenotype Fried. The Spearman correlation test was used to determine the bivariate relationship.

Result: A total of 62 elderly men subjects with mean age of 69.26±7.11 years old. Frailty syndrome occurred in 50% subjects (n=32). There was no correlation between BMI and frailty in this study (r = 0.07; p = 0.5).

Conclusion: There was no correlation between BMI and frailty in this study. This shows frailty is not related with poor BMI.
