χ2: Chi-square. *: Significant difference compared to baseline (P ≤ 0.05). HIV-M: men, HIV-W: women. Cut-off points for detecting sarcopenia using the ASM index - 7.26 kg/m2 for men and 5.45 kg/m2 for women Cut-off points related to moderate and high risk of disability from sarcopenia using the SMM index - for men: 8.51-10.75 kg/m2 and ≤8.50 kg/m2, respectively; for women: 5.76-6.75 kg/m2 and ≤5.75 kg/m2, respectively.
