Résumé
Introduction: Growth is a central process in paediatrics. Weight and height evaluation are therefore routine exams for every child but in some situation, particularly inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), a wider evaluation of nutritional status needs to be performed. The assessment of body composition is essential in order to maintain acceptable growth using the following techniques: Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA), bio-impedance-analysis (BIA) and anthropometric measurements (skinfold thickness skin), the latter being most easily available and most cost effective. Objectives: To assess the accuracy of skinfold equations in estimating percentage body fat (%BF) in children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), compared with assessment of body fat dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA). Methods: Twenty-one patients (11 females, 10 males; mean age: 14.3 years, range 12 - 16 years) with IBD (Crohn's disease n = 15, ulcerative colitis n = 6)). Estimated%BF was computed using 6 established equations based on the triceps, biceps, subscapular and suprailiac skinfolds (Deurenberg, Weststrate, Slaughter, Durnin & Rahaman, Johnston, Brook) and compared to DEXA. Concordance analysis was performed using Lin's concordance correlation and the Bland-Altman limits of agreement method. Results: Durnin & Rahaman's equation shows a higher Lin's concordance coefficient with a small difference amongst raw values for skinfolds and DEXA compared to the other equations. Correlation coefficient between mean and difference is close to zero with a non-significant Bradley-Blackwood test. Conclusion: Body composition in paediatric IBD patients using the Durnin & Rahaman skinfold-equation adequately reflects values obtained by DEXA.
