*Handgrip strength was expressed as kilogram. Dietary protein intake status was classified as low (<0.8 g/kg body weight/day), moderate (0.8-1.2 g/kg/d), and high (>1.2 g/kg/d) protein intake. Adjustment for age, smoking status, alcohol consumption, physical activity level, household income, body mass index, daily total energy intake, histories of diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, cardio- and cerebrovascular diseases, or any cancer, and laboratory tests including serum creatinine, high sensitivity C-reactive protein levels, and lipid profiles.
