  • measurement
  • The height of persons can vary over the course of a day, due to factors such as a height decrease from exercise done directly before measurement (i.e. inversely correlated), or a height increase since lying down for a significant period of time (i.e. positively correlated). (wikipedia.org)

  • The aim of this study was to use cohort data from three generations of one family to examine the relative maternal and paternal associations with offspring body mass index and how these associations compare with family height to demonstrate evidence of genetic or environmental cross-generational transmission. (ucd.ie)
  • METHODS: We compared genetic association summary statistics (effect size, p value) for BMI and height from the GIANT consortium genome-wide association study (GWAS) with genetic association summary statistics from the arcOGEN consortium osteoarthritis GWAS. (ox.ac.uk)

  • Major social inequalities in height were levelled out for Stockholm children in the 1950s, a social gap reappeared in the 1960s and small disparities still exist for boys today. (diva-portal.org)
  • To demonstrate that alternative measures are reliable predictors of height in children with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy (CP) and moderate/severe malnutrition and in healthy children. (sciencedomain.org)
  • In healthy children, knee height (KH) and lower-leg length (LLL) were similar to standing height. (sciencedomain.org)

  • Height and weight were measured in 529 Irish children aged 5 to 7 years and were self-reported by parents and grandparents. (ucd.ie)
  • NUTRITION
  • Post-exercise nutrition is an important factor in a nutrition plan for athletes as it pertains to the recovery of the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • athletes
  • Dietary protein intake for well-trained athletes should occur before, during and after physical activity as it is advantageous in gaining muscle mass and strength. (wikipedia.org)
  • results
  • RESULTS: We found significant overlap between osteoarthritis and height (p=3.3×10(-5) for signals with p≤0.05) when the GIANT and arcOGEN GWAS were compared. (ox.ac.uk)

  • A similar analysis of height showed strong familial associations from maternal and paternal lines across each generation. (ucd.ie)
  • It is similar to the body mass index, but the mass is normalized with the third power of body height rather than the second power. (wikipedia.org)

  • analysis
  • I went to an assessment yesterday that included a body composition analysis. (cyclinguk.org)
  • Associations between the weight, height, and body mass index of family members were examined with mixed models and heritability estimates computed using linear regression analysis. (ucd.ie)
  • Phenotypic information of height and BMI was accounted for in a separate analysis using osteoarthritis-free controls. (ox.ac.uk)
  • growth
  • Child anthropometrics measured by trained interviewers at ages three, five and seven years (2003-2009) were transformed to standardised scores based on 1990 British Growth Reference data from which piecewise linear models for height and BMI were jointly fitted. (diva-portal.org)
  • The corpulence index is variously defined (the first definition should be preferred due to the use of SI-units kg and m) as follows: It plays a role in assessing whether the intrauterine growth restriction of a child is symmetrical or asymmetrical. (wikipedia.org)
  • healthy
  • In 2005, Captain John Edmonson, who was then Naval Base's chief medical officer, asserted that force feeding was a last resort, used only when counseling failed, and when the detainee's body mass index fell below the healthy range. (wikipedia.org)

  • CONCLUSIONS: We found a significant excess of shared signals between both osteoarthritis and height and osteoarthritis and BMI, suggestive of a common genetic aetiology. (ox.ac.uk)
  • Across a wide variety of human traits studied, there is typically minimal shared-environment influence, considerable non-shared environment influence, and a large genetic component (mostly additive), which is on average ~50% and sometimes much higher for some traits such as height or intelligence.
