    • Análise de diferentes métodos de diagnóstico da sarcopenia em comparação ao padrão ouro 

      Viviani, Isabela de Castro [UNIFESP] (Universidade Federal de São Paulo (UNIFESP), 2019-12-03)
      Resumo: A sarcopenia impacta diretamente na qualidade de vida dos idosos. Sua detecção pode advir de suspeita clínica ou pelo resultado do SARC-F. Quando o resultado é positivo, a força muscular é avaliada pelo teste de ...
    • Assessment of body composition by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry, skinfold thickness and creatinine kinetics in chronic kidney disease patients 

      Avesani, Carla Maria [UNIFESP]; Draibe, Sergio Antonio [UNIFESP]; Kamimura, Maria Ayako [UNIFESP]; Cendoroglo Neto, Miguel [UNIFESP]; Pedrosa, Alessandra [UNIFESP]; Lazaretti-Castro, Marise [UNIFESP]; Cuppari, Lilian [UNIFESP] (Oxford Univ Press, 2004-09-01)
      Background. Finding a method that can be routinely used to assess body composition with minimum error is still a challenge for those who work with chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. This study aimed to compare the value ...
    • Avaliação da composição corporal em adolescentes obesos: o uso de dois diferentes métodos 

      Mello, Marco Tulio de [UNIFESP]; Dâmaso, Ana Raimunda [UNIFESP]; Antunes, Hanna Karen Moreira [UNIFESP]; Siqueira, Kãli O. [UNIFESP]; Lazaretti-Castro, Marise [UNIFESP]; Bertolino, Sheila V. [UNIFESP]; Stella, Sérgio Garcia [UNIFESP]; Tufik, Sergio [UNIFESP] (Sociedade Brasileira de Medicina do Exercício e do Esporte, 2005-10-01)
      Plethysmography is an easy and quickly method for the determination of the body composition that uses the inverse relation between pressure and volume. The objective of the present study was to compare the values obtained ...
    • Bone mineralization in Turner syndrome: a transverse study of the determinant factors in 58 patients 

      Costa, AMG; Lemos-Marini, SHV; Baptista, MTM; Morcillo, A. M.; Maciel-Guerra, A. T.; Guerra, G. (Springer, 2002-01-01)
      Turner syndrome (TS) is characterized by the presence of an X chromosome and total or partial loss of the second sex chromosome, short stature, hypergonadotrophic hypogonadism, and a variable dysmorphic picture. Delayed ...
    • Classical congenital adrenal hyperplasia due to 21-hydroxylase deficiency: a cross-sectional study of factors involved in bone mineral density 

      Freire, Patricia Oliveira de Almeida; Lemos-Marini, Sofia Helena Valente de; Maciel-Guerra, Andrea Trevas; Morcillo, André Moreno; Baptista, Maria Teresa Matias; Mello, Maricilda Palandi de; Guerra Junior, Gil (Springer, 2003-01-01)
      Glucocorticoids are essential in the treatment of patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH). the opposite actions of glucocorticoids and androgens in bone mass achievement justify a study of bone mineral density ...
    • Clinical value of anthropometric estimates of leg lean volume in nutritionally depleted and non-depleted patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease 

      Villaca, Debora Strose [UNIFESP]; Lerario, Maria Cristina [UNIFESP]; dal Corso, Simone [UNIFESP]; Napolis, Lara [UNIFESP]; Pereira de Albuquerque, Andre Luiz [UNIFESP]; Lazaretti-Castro, Marize [UNIFESP]; Sachs, Anita [UNIFESP]; Nery, Luiz Eduardo [UNIFESP]; Neder, Jose Alberto [UNIFESP] (Cambridge Univ Press, 2008-08-01)
      This study aimed to investigate the clinical usefulness of an anthropometrically based method for estimating leg lean volume (LLV) in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who presented or not with ...
    • Peak VO2 correction for fat-free mass estimated by anthropometry and DEXA 

      Neder, José Alberto [UNIFESP]; Lerario, Maria Cristina [UNIFESP]; Lazaretti-Castro, Marise [UNIFESP]; Sachs, Anita [UNIFESP]; Nery, Luiz Eduardo [UNIFESP] (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2001-11-01)
      Purpose: Anthopometric (ANTHRO) and dual-energy x-ray absorptiometric (DEXA) estimates of total body and leg fat-free masses (FFM) were obtained in 77 randomly selected sedentary men and women, aged 20-80: intermethod ...
    • Relationship between bone mineral density, leptin and insulin concentration in Brazilian obese adolescents 

      Prado, Wagner Luiz do; Piano, Aline de [UNIFESP]; Lazaretti-Castro, Marise [UNIFESP]; Mello, Marco Tulio de [UNIFESP]; Stella, Sérgio Garcia; Tufik, Sergio [UNIFESP]; Nascimento, Claudia Maria da Penha Oller do [UNIFESP]; Oyama, Lila Missae [UNIFESP]; Lofrano-Prado, Mara Cristina [UNIFESP]; Tock, Lian [UNIFESP]; Caranti, Danielle Arisa [UNIFESP]; Dâmaso, Ana Raimunda [UNIFESP] (Springer, 2009-09-01)
      Despite the epidemic of adolescent obesity, the effect of obesity and hormones on bone mineral accrual during growth is poorly understood. Studies using dual-energy X-ray to examine the effect of obesity on bone mass in ...
