Abstract

Objective

Identify the association between low physical performance and quality of life in older adults.

Methods
Cross-sectional analysis of the FraDySMex cohort study (Frailty, Daphnia and Sarcopenia in Mexican Adults). The physical performance was evaluated by Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB), and the quality of life through the Visual Analogue Scale of the EuroQol-5D for the Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQOL). In addition, other variables such as socio-demographic, comorbidity, cognitive status, depressive symptoms, anxiety, frailty, and functional dependence were evaluated.

Results

624 adults were included, 79.13% (CI 95% 75.72–82.26) women, aged 71.1±9.5 years. The prevalence of low physical performance frequency was 32.47% (CI 95% 28.88–36.31) and low HRQOL of 28.57% (CI 95% 25.05–32.29). The low physical performance was associated with a low HRQOL (OR= 2.09; CI 95% 1.35-3.23; p=.001), adjusted for age, sex, comorbidity index, cognitive, anxiety, and depressive symptoms in the logistic regression.

Conclusion

The low physical performance is associated with a low quality of life in older people.
