Key MethodIndividual total body water volumes for 458 adult males and 265 adult females obtained from dilution studies, together with their height, weight, and age have been selected from the literature. These values were used to derive total body water prediction equations for adults of any age. The equations that gave the best fit were for males: formula (see text) and for females: formula (see text). Numerous other linear regression equations to predict total body water from anthropometric…Expand

Body composition in the elderly: Total body water and anthropometry
TLDR
A negative correlation was found for dynamometry with age, being significant for women, and a simple model is proposed for use in epidemiological and field studies where other more sophisticated methods can not be applied.
Estimation of body composition from total body potassium [40K] counts among college women
Abstract The body composition of 58 college women was determined by whole body 40 K count; skinfold measurements at four sites; creatinine equivalence and from prediction equation of body water. Lean
Total body water adjustment of mean alcohol intakes.
TLDR
This report supports the standard use of TBW-adjusted alcohol intakes in analyses of samples with both genders and/or a wide age range.
Total body water and peak alcohol concentration: a comparative study of young, middle-age, and older females.
TLDR
The results suggest, however, that this effect cannot be fully explained by the notion that older persons have a smaller body water volume, and evidence is offered to demonstrate that percent body fat is not a determinant of the blood alcohol level an individual will attain.
The calculation of blood ethanol concentrations in males and females
TLDR
Drinking experiments revealed a clearly higher congruence of calculated and measured blood ethanol concentrations when rFI or rMI were used instead of rigid distribution factors, i.e. 0.6 for women and 0.7 for men with or without the assumption of a 10% so-called resorption deficit.
Prediction of total body water and fatness from anthropometry: Importance of skinfold measurements
TLDR
By including skinfold measurements, a single prediction equation for TBW was valid for males and females across different population samples, and had better R2 and smaller SEE than those using any combination of variables, weight, height, age, and sex.
GFR normalized to total body water allows comparisons across genders and body sizes.
TLDR
GFR adjusted for TBW by the regression method exhibited less dependence on gender, height, and weight compared with the other physiologic variables and should replace the current practice of normalizing GFR to 1.73 m(2) of body-surface area.
Linear Regression Models for Total Body Water Measurement Based on Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis
This work proposes new linear regression models for total body water (TBW) measurements for both male and female human being based on bioelectrical impedance analysis. In this research total 2817
New gender-specific formulae for estimating extracellular fluid volume from height and weight in adults
TLDR
GFR/ECV and GFR/eECV showed correlations with each other that were almost identical between men and women and eECV used for measuring GFR from a single blood sample should be gender-specific.
Total body water data for white adults 18 to 64 years of age: the Fels Longitudinal Study.
TLDR
Mixed longitudinal data indicate that TBW volume maintains a reasonable degree of stability in men and women through a large portion of adulthood and are recommended as current reference data for healthy adults.

Relationship between total body water and surface area in normal and obese subjects
TLDR
The predicted total body water was found to be very closely related to the predicted surface area giving correlation coefficients (r) for males and females of 0·997 and 0·985 respectively.
TOTAL BODY WATER CONTENT IN NORMAL AND GROSSLY OBESE WOMEN
TLDR
The overweight women, with two exceptions, had total body water values in the expected range, which indicated that they were accumulating fat, not water.
Influence of muscular development, obesity, and age on the fat-free mass of adults.
TLDR
The density and the potassium content of the FFM appear to decline with obesity and aging, and muscular development is associated with a decrease in the density but an increase in the potassium Content of theFFM.
Body fat assessed from total body density and its estimation from skinfold thickness: measurements on 481 men and women aged from 16 to 72 years.
TLDR
Measurement of body density or of total body K or oftotal body water allows a calculation of the relative proportion of these two compartments in the body and therefore also of the total fat content.

In the United States it has been estimated that between 10 and 20 percent of all adolescent children are obese (Cheek 1968; Hampton et al. 1966). In order to determine the extent of obesity in an

TLDR
It was found that the lean body mass could be predicted from the height and weight, and formulae for both males and females have been produced with multiple correlation coefficients (r) of 0·96 and 0·83 respectively.
ANTHROPOMETRIC EVALUATION OF BODY COMPOSITION THROUGHOUT LIFE

TLDR
The matter of the value of anthropometric techniques which can be executed rapidly and accurately with instruments as simple as the tape measure and anthropometer in revealing certain aspects of body configuration is brought up.
CHANGES IN BODY COMPOSITION WITH AGE *
TLDR
A formulation utilizing both body water content and densitometric measurement* answers this difficulty to some extent by enabling correction for abnormal hydration but continues to assume a constant density for fat-free body solids.
Total body water and lean body mass estimated by ethanol dilution.
TLDR
The ETH method compares favorably with the HTO, it has the advantage that it is nonradioactive and can be repeated daily if necessary, and the correlation between the two methods was highly significant.
Red‐Cell Volume and Total Body Water
TLDR
This study established a mcthod of detecting small charigcs in red-cell volume and investigated the discrepancy between Huff and Fellcr (1956) and Muldowncy (1957), which found only slight improvement in correlation when red-cc11 volume was related to lean-body mass instead of to body weight.
