Energy expenditure, physical activity, and body composition of ambulatory adults with hereditary neuromuscular disease.

Abstract

Persons with neuromuscular disease (NMD) have progressive weakness and wasting of skeletal muscle, reduced fat-free mass, and increased fat mass relative to healthy control subjects. To test the hypothesis that resting energy expenditure (REE), estimated total daily energy expenditure (TEE), and physical activity patterns are altered in ambulatory adults… (More)
