This study investigated the use of bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) as a means of assessing body composition in patients with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS). Segmental, multifrequency BIA was performed on 30 patients with PWS (16 males and 14 females; mean age: 8.1±3.9 years; age range: 2.9–19.6 years) using eight tactile electrodes. No patient had received growth hormone treatment prior to baseline measurements. Standard deviation scores for height, weight, and body mass index were–0.96±1.29, 2.28±2.66, and …
