BACKGROUND Body composition in children is generally measured by 2-component (2C) models, which are subject to error arising from variation in fat-free mass (FFM) composition. The 4-component (4C) model, which divides body weight into fat, water, mineral, and protein, can overcome these limitations. OBJECTIVE The aims of our study were to 1) describe 4C model data for children aged 8-12 y; 2) evaluate interindividual variability in the hydration, bone mineral content, and density of FFM; 3… CONTINUE READING
