We investigated the relationships between BMR, fat-free mass (FFM) and fat mass in pregnancy. BMR was measured by indirect calorimetry and body composition was assessed by densitometry in seventeen non-pregnant women (79.9 (SD 26.3, range 50.5-151.4) kg) and sixteen pregnant women (75.7 (SD 20.6, range 54.5-115.9) kg). The pregnant women were evaluated during weeks 31-35 of gestation. Multiple regression analysis of BMR with FFM and fat mass in the non-pregnant women showed that FFM was a… CONTINUE READING
