Validity of anthropometric equations to estimate infant fat mass at birth and in early infancy

Abstract

BACKGROUND In newborns and children, body fat estimation equations are often used at different ages than the age used to develop the equations. Limited validation studies exist for newborn body fat estimation equations at birth or later in infancy. The study purpose was to validate 4 newborn fat mass (FM) estimation equations in comparison to FM measured by… (More)
