“…Hand grip strength (HGS), which reflects overall muscle strength, is a cost-effective, reliable, quick, and easy measure of many diseases [ 1 , 2 ]. HGS is closely associated with cardiovascular mortality [ 1 3 ], all-cause mortality [ 4 ], visual impairment and diabetic retinopathy [ 5 ], alexithymia [ 6 ], myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome [ 7 ], nonalcoholic fatty liver disease [ 8 ], osteoporosis [ 9 ], and arthritis [ 10 22 ].
