8)). Furthermore, we found that most of the significant ethnic differences in measures of overweight, obesity, and body fatness disappeared after controlling for SM (Wang 2002). However, to our knowledge, none of the current widely used obesity references have provided a practical approach to address this issue. Previously we have proposed a populationbased approach for adjusting maturity difference between the study and reference populations (Wang and Adair 2001). We illustrated the approach using the WHO/NCHS (National Center for Health Statistics) reference and data collected in three populations.
Sex differences in total fat mass and its body distribution are apparent even long before puberty starts (Daniels et al. 1997). The amount of fat mass in girls is usually higher than in boys at all ages (Daniels et al. 1997; Rodríguez et al. 2004b). These body composition differences related to sex support the concept that population standard growth curves must be constructed separately for both sexes. Furthermore, sexual maturation is related to adiposity measures and the association varies by sex (Wang 2002), and it has been argued that sexual maturation status should be considered when assessing young people’s nutritional status including obesity (Wang and Adair 2001; WHO 1995).
Features of the twocompartment model are influenced by age and maturation (Butte et al. 2000). It has been demonstrated that the proportion of FM to FFM changes throughout childhood and adolescence, and the changes in boys are different from those in girls (Maynard et al. 2001). Early growth is a consequence of cellular hypertrophy and hyperplasia. Throughout infancy, childhood and adolescence, there is a change in the chemical composition of FFM as defined in terms of total body water (TBW), extracellular water, cellular water, osseous minerals, non-osseous minerals, carbohydrates and total body potassium (TBK).
