[Validity of 5 bioelectric impedance equations for the estimation of lean body mass in women].
Minerva Endocrinol. 1991 Jan-Mar; 16(1):37-41.ME

Abstract

Fat free mass (FFM) predicted by five bioelectrical impedance (BIA) available formulae (Segal et al., Lukaski et al., Kushner et al., Deurenberg et al., manufacturer's predictive equation) was compared with densitometrically-determined FFM (as a reference method) in two groups of young women with different anthropometric characteristics. In the farmers (very short and light individuals), none of the studied formulae was able to accurately predict FFM: this latter was overestimated in subjects with low and underestimated in those with high FFM. In the other group (INCAP employees), only values predicted by Lukaski formula were in perfect agreement with FFM, showing no bias depending on FFM changes. In conclusion, the available BIA formulae seem to be specific for population from which they were derived and could not be used on samples from other populations if not cross-validated.
