Moore et al reported equations for predicting intracellular water as the percent of total body water in adults.
Patient selection: males from 20 to 84 years of age, females from 20 to 74 years of age
(2) age in years
intracellular water as percent of total body water for a male =
= 62.3 – (0.1556 * (age in years))
intracellular water as percent of total body water for a female =
= 55.3 – (0.0697 * (age in years))
