Differences in skeletal and muscle mass with aging in Black and White women (source: Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab, 2000, 278(6), E1153-1157) [8]. Change with age in total body potassium (TBK) in black and white women, adjusted to mean height and weight for each race. For blacks, TBK = 0.11057 − 0.00016409 × Age (P < 0.0424). For whites, TBK = 0.11841 − 0.00047214 × Age (P < 0.0001). b) Total body calcium (TBCa) plotted against age in black and white women by use of a quadratic model, adjusted to mean height for each race. For blacks, TBCa = 0.70415 + 0.0065622 × Age − 0.00010433 × Age2 (P < 0.0001). For whites, TBCa = 0.66308 + 0.0065622 × Age − 0.00010433 × Age2 (P < 0.0001)
