This article is from BMC Geriatrics, volume 14.AbstractBackground: Body composition changes with ageing can influence the adiponectin concentration. However, the component of body composition that is associated with adiponectin concentrations in older adults remains unclear. Methods: There were 152 males and 168 females aged 65 years or older that participated in the 2010 Hallym Aging Study (HAS). Body composition (assessed by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry; DXA), anthropometric parameters and adiponectin were obtained from all participants. Multivariate linear regression models assessed the association of body fat percentage, regional muscle and bone mineral contents of body composition and waist-height ratio with adiponectin concentration. Age, albumin, testosterone concentration and metabolic parameters were considered as confounding factors. Results: In correlation analysis, age was positively associated with adiponectin in males (P
