The human body is composed of components such as water, protein, inorganic salts, and body fat. These maintain the balance of body composition and ensure a healthy state. To accurately determine the presence of diseases such as obesity and malnutrition, it is necessary to know the content of the body's components. Some hospitals have introduced children's body composition analyzer machines, which use the eight-electrode BIA analysis method to perform accurate detection on data such as the height, weight, body fat percentage, muscle mass, waist to hip ratio, protein, inorganic salts, total body water, and visceral fat area of pre-school children, comprehensively evaluating their nutritional status, and providing timely guidance and correction of nutritional deficiencies.
Growth and development are basic characteristics and important life phenomena of children. The body weight consists of bones, muscles, fat, water, and inorganic substances. Body weight can reflect the recent nutritional status of children, and it is a sensitive index of children's growth and development, which is influenced by factors such as health, nutrition, and the addition of complementary foods.
Protein accounts for about 20% of the body weight. Long-term lack of protein can cause symptoms such as stunted growth, emaciation, anemia, decreased resistance, and non-healing wounds. Excessive intake of protein will be decomposed and excreted outside the body, wasting protein and increasing the burden on the body.
Fat is the "fuel depot" of the body. Foods containing fats include beans, plant oils, dairy products, eggs, fish, and meat. Excessive intake of fat may lead to obesity and bring a series of negative effects, but it is not advisable to blindly lose weight.
Bone minerals are essential materials for constructing human body tissues and play an important role in regulating human metabolism, reflecting the strength of bones and teeth, and are related to diseases such as back and leg pain.
Water is an indispensable substance in the human body, accounting for about 60%-70% of body weight. During exercise, due to the acceleration of organ and tissue activity and sweating, more water needs to be consumed. Children need an average of 600-800ml of water per day, and the principle of supplementing water is "small amounts more often".
The decrease in the content of inorganic salts and protein or the increase in fat content in childhood are related to the increased risk of chronic diseases in adulthood. The reduction of inorganic salts is related to the increased risk of osteoporosis, and the increase in fat content is related to the increased risk of obesity and cardiovascular events.
Therefore, using children's body composition analyzer machines to detect the body composition of children, analyze the body types, protein, body fat, skeletal muscles, water, and BMI of overweight, normal, and underweight children through five indicators, and then master the distribution of various indicators of children's bodies. The analysis, detection, and nutritional assessment of children's body composition can enable the understanding of the current nutritional and growth status of children, actively intervene according to the situation to improve future health status, and at the same time, it is convenient to operate, without radiation or other harmful effects on human health. Children are easy to accept and cooperate with.
The body composition analysis displays the measurement results of body water, protein, inorganic salts, and body fat, as well as the standard range. Body composition analyzer machines assess the left and right balance of the upper and lower body, focusing not on the amount of muscles or fat, but on whether they are balanced.
