Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry measurements in children with and without visually obvious lipoatrophy | ||||
Children with lipoatrophy, N=15 | Children without lipoatrophy, N=27 | HIV-uninfected local population norms, N=34 | p-value, adjusted for age and sex (two-tailed)* | |
Limb fat versus limb lean ratio: mean with 95% confidence interval (95% CI) | 0.36 (0.25 – 0.46) | 0.62 (0.54 – 0.70) | 0.63 (0.56 – 0.70) | <0.001 |
Limb fat versus total body weight ratio: mean (95% CI) | 9.9 (8.5 – 11.4) | 13.7 (12.7 – 14.8) | 14.7 (13.7 – 15.7) | <0.001 |
Limb fat versus body mass index ratio: mean (95% CI) | 0.12 (0.10 – 0.13) | 0.15 (0.14 – 0.17) | 0.17 (0.16 – 0.19) | 0.001 |
Total limb fat, kg, mean (95% CI) | 1.7 (1.4 – 2.1) | 2.3 (2.1 – 2.6) | 2.7 (2.4 – 2.9) | 0.01 |
* p-value compares HIV-infected children with and without lipoatrophy.
