Brook et al correlated lean body mass with total body water in prepubescent children. The author is from the Institute of Child Health in London.
Age of subjects: 1 to 11 years
Lean body mass was calculated from body density, which was calculated from skinfold thickness at 4 sites.
total body water in liters =
= (0.64 * (lean body mass in kg)) + 0.89
lean body mass in kg =
= ((total body water) - 0.89) / 0.64 =
= (1.56 * (total body water)) - 1.39
