Objectives: To determine the association between sarcopenia and renal function in patients with chronic kidney disease at the National Geriatric Hospital. Methods: A cross-sectional study included of 180 chronic kidney disease outpatients aged 60 and over who were diagnosed and treatedat National Geriatric Hospital. Sarcopenia was indentified according to National Institutes of Health criteria FNIH. Results: The average age of subjects was 72 ± 8.7 with 65 males and 115 females. The majority of patients in the stage 2 of chronic kidney disease accounted for 50%. The prevalence of sarcopenia was 20.6%. There was a statistically significant association between stage of chronic kidney disease and sarcopenia (p <0.05). Conclusion: The prevalence of sarcopenia in older in-patients with chronic kidney disease at National Geriatric Hospital was rather high, stage of chronic kidney disease was related to sarcopenia.
