Changes in body composition in adolescents with anorexia nervosa. Comparison of bioelectrical impedance analysis and total body potassium
Wotton, M.J., Trocki, O., Thomas, B.J., Hammond, P., Shepherd, R.W., Lewindon, P.J., Wilcox, J., Murphy, A.J., & Cleghorn, G.J. (2000) Changes in body composition in adolescents with anorexia nervosa. Comparison of bioelectrical impedance analysis and total body potassium. Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, 904, pp. 418-419.
Patients with anorexia nervosa (AN) have low body weight, depleted fat stores, and reduced muscle mass. Both total body potassium (TBK) and bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) have been used to measure the body composition of these patients.1–4 Whereas TBK accurately measures body cell mass, the metabolically active compartment of the body, whole body potassium counters are expensive and not readily available. The purpose of this study was to investigate the potential of multiple frequency BIA (MFBIA) to monitor changes in body compartments in patients with AN.
