body cell mass

body cell mass

The sum total of functional cells within an organism, the maintenance of which is a parameter of interest in critically ill patients. Measurement of fat-free mass, bone mineral and extracellular water by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry and multifrequency bioimpedance allows a reasonably accurate estimation of body cell mass at the bedside.

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate body composition parameters, including fat-free mass (FFM), appendicular skeletal muscle mass (ASMM), relative skeletal muscle mass (RSM) index, body cell mass (BCM), BCM index, total body potassium (TBK), fat mass, percentage fat mass (FM), and their differences between age groups and to evaluate the frequency of sarcopenia in healthy older subjects.
1) It results from the gradual depletion of host body cell mass (bcm), with loss of adipose tissue and skeletal muscle mass that may reach as high as 80%.
In GDH obese subjects body mass index (BMI), waist circumference, waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), fat mass (FM), and resistance (R) were higher while reactance (Xc), phase angle, body cell mass (BCM), IGF-I, or IGF-I z-scores were lower than in normal responders (p<0.

And yet another is low body cell mass, which leads to increased fat mass.
OBJECTIVE: To determine (1) lean and fat body compartments, reflected by fat-free mass (FFM), appendicular skeletal muscle mass (ASMM), body cell mass (BCM), total body potassium (TBK), fat mass and percentage fat mass, and their differences between age groups in healthy, physically active subjects from 18 to 94 y of age; and (2) if the rate of decrease in any one of the parameters by age might be accelerated compared to others.
