Equations for classifying overweight in children: a comparison

Equations for classifying overweight in children: a comparison

International Journal of Body Composition Research 4(2): 87-93

The aim of this study was to compare percent fat mass and hence, classification of overweight calculated from 3 prediction equations with that measured using isotope dilution as a reference. Body composition data were collected from 113 normal, healthy, children in Australia Deuterium dilution was used to measure total body water and impedance was measured using a hand-to-foot bioelectrical impedance device.
