ABSTRACT

Anthropometry may not predict body cell mass and provides only limited information about nutritional status in patients. So bioelectric impedence analysis (BIA) offers a useful alternative to anthropometry because it measures multiple body compartments and provides a more detailed assessment of body composition. The present investigation was carried out at ART centre of Susheela Tiwari Hospital, Haldwani, India. 110 subjects were purposively selected from the study population. Bioelectrical impedance was used to assess body composition and determine. The female subjects showed mean values 13.79±9.64 Kg, 34.06±7.69 Kg, 20.11±2.20 kg and 5.66± 0.71degree and while male subjects showed 11.69±4.61Kg, 43.28±6.76 Kg, 24.37±3.59kg and 5.89±1.06 respectively for fat, fat free mass, body cell mass and phase angle. Distributions of female and male subjects on the basis of body fat per cent revealed that majority of subjects (58 per cent females and 55.78 per cent male) were moderately lean. Necessary intervention like supplementation and exercise should include as a part of treatment to prevent malnutrition

Keywords: HIV, ART, body cell mass, fat free mass, body fat, phase angle.
