Influence of age and body mass index on nerve conduction velocity in median nerve and relation among them in the healthy population of Indore region

Abstract
Background: Nerve conduction studies (NCS) deal with the method to work on the nerve conduction velocities (NCVs) which are being capable of finding nerve lesion. NCS aids in finding nerve lesion and situations where muscles get influenced by it. There are many differences in values for NCV in different nerves in relation to geographical location and other biological factors, i.e., age, sex, and body mass index (BMI). Hence, these factors should be considered during NCS as such factors differ from place to place.

Aims and Objective: The main purpose for doing this study was to find the influence of age and BMI on nerve conduction in the median nerve along with how they are correlated to each other.

Materials and Methods: Around 118 normal individuals between the ages of 20 and 60 years, without any nerve lesion, were tested at index medical college, a tertiary care center, Indore. Statistical figures were described using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences 20.0 model.

Results: Mean NCV rises early around 20–30 years and 31–40 years, following a fall with increasing age as well as BMI. It was discovered that NCV proportionally associated with rising BMI with statistically significant (P < 0.05).

Conclusion: The nerve conduction of peripheral nerves could help to evaluate peripheral nerve lesion. Age and BMI have a definitive effect on NCV. Hence, all these biological factors should be considered during interpretation of nerve conduction disorders.

Key words: Nerve Conduction Studies; Net Calorific Value; Median Nerve; Body Mass Index; Age; Sex
