BACKGROUND Many medical procedures routinely use body weight as a parameter for calculation. However, these measurements are not always available. In addition, the commonly used visual estimation has had high error rates. Therefore, the aim of this study was to develop a predictive equation for body weight using body circumferences. METHODS A prospective(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of low birth weight (LBW) in Chiang Mai University Hospital was high. OBJECTIVE Determined the incidence and risk factors of low birth weight infants. MATERIAL AND METHOD The present study included pregnant women between 1989 and 1990 who attended the antenatal clinics (ANC) having a gestational age less than or equal to 24(More)
BACKGROUND The measurements of body mass index (BMI) and percentage of body fat are used in many clinical situations. However, special tools are required to measure body fat. Many formulas are proposed for estimation but these use constant coefficients of age. Age spectrum might affect the predicted value of the body composition due to body component(More)
Several studies show that intrauterine nutrition restriction is associated with vascular disease. Animal studies have shown that atherosclerosis can be affected by a constrained intrauterine diet, but this relationship in humans is controversial. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between maternal intake during pregnancy and(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between body composition parameters, i.e. waist circumference, android fat mass (AFM), gynoid fat mass (GFM), android to gynoid fat mass ratio (AG ratio) and metabolic syndrome (MS) risk components in young Thai adults. METHODS This was a cross-sectional study conducted among 391 adolescents(More)
The study was designed to investigate the problem of endemic goiter and iodine supplementation in Mae Hong Son, Thailand. Routine school data still showed high goiter rates in many areas. Six such schools and five schools with declining prevalence of goiter were selected. A single examiner examined all the children. Their weight, height, body mass index,(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare body fat distribution using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) in young adult subjects with metabolic syndrome (MS) with those without MS and also to determine whether a significant association existed between total body fat mass (FM) and MS along with the effect of birth weight. METHODS This(More)
Height is an important clinical parameter. However, there were no specific measurements available for particular clinical situations. Although many anthropometric measurements were suggested, no formula was recommended in Thailand. The objective of this study was to develop a formula for height prediction with acceptable validity. Two thousand volunteers(More)
