Height adjustment in assessing dual energy x-ray absorptiometry measurements of bone mass and density in children.
CONTEXT In children, bone mineral content (BMC) and bone mineral density (BMD) measurements by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) are affected by height status. No consensus exists on how toExpand

Weight and Metabolic Outcomes After 2 Years on a Low- Carbohydrate Versus Low-Fat Diet:
Previous studies have demonstrated that low-carbohydrate diets achieve greater short-term (6 months) weight loss than low-fat diets. Longer-term (1 to 2 years) data have been inconsistent. WeightExpand
