RESUMO:

Introduction: Self-rated Health (SRH) is one of the most used outcome measures in social epidemiology, public health research and clinical practice, and has been associated with morbidity and mortality in different populations. Physical performance measures are largely determined by physiological functions that typically decrease with age. Some evidence shows that SRH is associated with objective measures of physical performance; however, studies investigating association in low- and middle-income settings are rare, especially for middle-aged populations. Objective: To verify the relationship between SRH and physical performance measures, through tests that assess upper and lower limb strength in middle-aged and elderly women in a low-income setting of Brazil. Methods: This is a cross-sectional study of 571 middle-aged women (40-59 years old) and elderly women (60-80 years old) living in the municipalities of Parnamirim and Santa Cruz, Rio Grande do Norte. Participants who reported their health status as "excellent," "very good," or "good" were allocated to the "SRH good" group, and those who reported their health as "fair" or "poor" composed the group "SRH poor". The physical performance evaluation consisted of 5 tests: handgrip strength, knee extension strength, one-legged balance with eyes open and closed, and chair stand test. The relationship between SRH and physical performance for middle-aged and older women was assessed by multiple linear regression adjusted for covariates (age, education, family income, BMI, physical activity, comorbidities, menopausal status, and reproductive history). Results: Middle-aged women from the “SRH good” group presented better average physical performance, with a stronger handgrip strength (β= 1.927, p<0.001), stronger knee extension strength (β= 2.714, p=0.001), greater one-legged balance with eyes open (β= 2.730, p= 0.001) and closed (β= 1.366, p= 0.037), and they were faster in the chair stand test (β= -0.766, p= 0.003) than those who reported health as "poor." For older women, only the knee extension strength test was significantly different in relation to the SRH, since women from the “SRH good” group were significantly stronger (β= 3.465, p= 0.007).
