Excess fat and fat-free mass have been extensively described in obese children, whereas few data about bone mineral content (BMC) variations are available in children. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) allows a direct and accurate measurement of three body compartments (fat, lean, and BMC), subdivided into three regions (arms, trunk, and legs). The aim of our study was to evaluate the influence of body compartments on total BMC (TBMC) and regional BMC (RBMC) in obese and normal-weight… CONTINUE READING
