Evaluating the contribution of differences in lean mass compartments for resting energy expenditure in African American and Caucasian American children.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Resting energy expenditure (REE), adjusted for total lean mass (LM), is lower in African American (AA) than Caucasian American (CA) children. Some adult studies suggest that AA-CA differences in lean mass compartments explain this REE difference. Similar data are limited in children. OBJECTIVE To evaluate differences in compartment-specific… (More)
