“…A recent systematic review on body composition estimation in children showed excellent reproducibility for %BF assessments by BIA. The fat mass and fat-free mass estimated by BIA were strongly correlated with the reference methods in both sexes, however, BIA underestimated the fat mass in both sexes (24).…”

“…BMI is not the best indicator for assessing childhood obesity; it does not distinguish between lean and fat mass and cannot completely identify children who may suffer from health issues related to excess adipose tissue. Moreover, the BF% estimated by BIA had almost perfect reproducibility, making it an applicable research tool in studies that investigate body composition changes at different times [ 34 ]. In Belgian children with higher BF%, lower hydration (over-day osmolality) was found [ 15 ].…”

“…The research provides ambiguous data on the accuracy of BIA; depending on the publication, it is indicated that there is a tendency to overestimate [35] or underestimate [32] FM or the BF percentage. Regardless of differences in the compliance of measurements with BIA and reference methods, a high correlation between the obtained results is observed [36]. While maintaining repetitive analysis conditions, BIA is an invaluable help in monitoring changes in body composition in individual patients [37].…”
