Example text

If the skinfold remains depressed, edema may be present. Standardized age- and gender-based equations are used for triceps skinfold and mid-arm measurements to estimate body composition (5,8). The major problem with skinfold measurement is that it is inaccurate and difficult to reproduce. Also, this measurement is difficult to perform in clinical situations. Therefore, skinfold measurement is not routinely used in clinical practice. 4. 1. Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis BIA is a reliable method for estimating body composition.

Population-based reference standards are available for both healthy adults and children (3,4). 1. Height/Stature Measurement of stature is critical because reported heights from patients are usually grossly overestimated (5). Height is best measured directly using a stadiometer mounted on a wall. Measuring bars on beam balance scales are not accurate. The individual must be able to stand upright. Infants, toddlers, and adults must be able to lay flat to measure recumbent length. When they are unable to do so, special measures must be used that provide an indirect estimate of height.

Patients may be depressed and embarrassed, negatively impacting their social life (10,11). 3. Gout Prevalence of reported gout is estimated at up to 3% of the population (35). Gout is more prevalent in men than women (18,19) with an age of onset after 40 years (18,35,36). Women are more likely to develop gout later in life (after menopause) than men, and the upper extremities are more often affected (35,37). A purine metabolism disorder, high serum uric acid levels, and monosodium uric acid crystal deposition in and around the joints characterize gout (18,35,36).
