Post a reply: classification and interpretation of MUAC among old children and adolescent

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

Good afternoon, We are carrying out a survey in Bangladesh and we are facing an issue regarding the analysis of MUAC among children above 5 years and adolescents. We collect the age (considered as accurate) but not the physiologic data. As far as we know there is no national reference or classification for these populations in Bangladesh. I read in the forum that we could establish a mean value from our sample and exclude the extreme values. But how shall we interpret then MUAC that fall under/above the mean value? Are there any new findings on MUAC interpretation in these populations? Thanks in advance, Anaïs.
