Evaluation of Nutritional Biochemical Parameters in Haemodialysis Patients Over a Ten-year Period

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.117
Pages: 
213–7
Synopsis: 
This study evaluated the nutritional status of haemodialysis patients by assessing biochemical and anthropometric parameters. The prevalence of malnutrition in haemodialysis patients was evident; however, the results showed that the nutritional deterioration of these patients was mainly reflected in their biochemical parameters rather than in their anthropometric measurements.

Using Receiver Operating Characteristic Curve Analysis in Detecting Excess Adiposity in 9–13-year Old South African Children

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2012.108
Pages: 
670–3
Synopsis: 
This study confirmed that log10 SF4:BMI (subcutaneous to overall fat) at conventional cut-off points had a relatively high sensitivity and specificity in detecting excess adiposity, and therefore could be used to identify excess adiposity in South African children.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Little is known concerning the applicability of receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis in detecting excess adiposity in preadolescent South African children. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of body mass index (BMI) and skinfold thickness:BMI (subcutaneous to overall fat) in detecting excess adiposity in preadolescent urban South African school children.
