  1. Fulltext. Growth and body composition of periurban Guatemalan children in relation to zinc status : a cross-sectional study.

    Article - En anglais


    In a study of periurban Guatemalan school-children (89 males, 73 females) aged 81.5+-7.0 mo (x+-SD), height, weight, arm circumference, and triceps-skinfold-thickness (TSF) measurements were examined in relation to plasma and hair zinc concentrations, plasma and red blood cell alkaline phosphatase activities, recognition thresholds for salt (RTS), delayed-cutaneous hypersensitivity response to seven recall skin-test antigens, and cognitive measures.

    Children were stunted [median height-for-age (HA) Z score -1.49] but not wasted [median weight-for-height (WH) Z score 0.20], with median midarm muscle area (MAMA) and midarm-fat area (MAFA) Z scores of -0.57 and -0.35, respectively.
