Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Older Mexican American adults experiencing pain are at risk of developing frailty

(NIH/National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities) Researchers funded by NIH have found that older Mexican Americans who suffer from pain were 1.7 times likelier to become frail, compared to study participants who did not report pain. The study published in The Journal of Pain by researchers at UTMB - Galveston, looked at pain as a predictor of frailty in older Mexican American adults in a follow-up period of 18 years. All participants were non-frail at the start of the study.
