Hydration of the fat-free body mass in children and adults: implications for body composition assessment.

Abstract

Previous studies have shown that children have a higher aqueous fraction of the fat-free body mass (FFM) than young adults. In older adults, methodological differences among studies limit evaluation of potential age-related differences in the water content of the FFM (W/FFM). Therefore, we determined W/FFM in 28 healthy white prepubescent children (age = 5… (More)
