A new study confirms the importance of measuring resting energy expenditure in a clinical setting rather than using predictive equations. The study has been published on the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition.
The usefulness of predictive equations of REE in healthy obese subjects has been analysed in this literature review published in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics from the British Dietetic Association.
The role of predicitve equations versus indirect calorimetry in patients treated for bipolar disorder has been investigated in this study published on the Official Journal of the Italian Society of Psychopathology.
A new study published on the Proceedings of the Nutrition Society focuses on energy expenditure after spinal cord injury (SCI) and how commonly used predictive equations tend to overestimate
resting metabolic rate (RMR) by 5–32 %.
