PWM: Treatment Assessment (2007)

Treatment Assessment

Treatment Assessment may include a number of topics associated with or supporting childhood overweight treatment.

Although the ADA recommends measuring resting energy expenditure when possible, the work group recommends using the equations from the 2005 US Institutes of Medicine "Dietary Reference Intakes for Energy, Carbohydrate, Fiber, Fat, Fatty Acids, Cholesterol, Protein, and Amino Acids (Macronutrients)," when predictive equations are used.

Other assessment topics will be added as available.
