• BIA-assessed cellular hydration and muscle performance in youth, adults, and older adults

    9 monthes ago - By Clinical Nutrition

    Alterations in body hydration can have an impact on muscle performance, with consequences not only at a sporting level, but on overall health and daily functional competence. Given that the estimation of body water from BIA is based on prediction equations involving assumptions on tissue hydration and body geometry, it is unclear if phase angle , which is not influenced by assumptions, is a better marker of muscle performance than the BIA estimated parameters of body water. Therefore, the aims of this investigation were to analyze the relationships of BIA-estimated body water compartments...
