Objective Metabolically healthy individuals are known to be resistant to cardiovascular disease development. However, a considerable fraction of those individuals shows deteriorated metabolic health over time. Although skeletal muscle is the primary insulin‐responsive target organ, a longitudinal investigation of the skeletal muscle mass in relation to the development of metabolically unhealthy phenotype has not been performed. We aimed to evaluate whether greater skeletal muscle mass is an independent protective factor …
