BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Skeletal muscle mass represents about 30-40 per cent of the total body weight, and has important roles in function and metabolism. Although newer methods of measuring muscle mass are accurate and sophisticated, there is a need for methods that can be used in low resource settings. Existing methods of predicting muscle mass are based on mid upper arm circumference (MUAC) measurements, sometimes corrected for triceps skinfold fat. The present study was undertaken to develop… CONTINUE READING
