dc.description.abstractMid upper arm circumference [‎MUAC]‎ is recognized as an effective means of screening for poor nutritional status in adults. The efficacy of calf circumference [‎CC]‎ as a screening tool, however, is not well reported. We studied 2000 healthy women [‎age range: 15-49 years]‎ in Mashed, Islamic Republic of Iran, to assess anthropometric measurements at reproductive age and the usefulness of MUAC and CC for estimating body mass index [‎BMI]‎ and screening of women at nutritional risk. We found a strong correlation between MUAC and CC with weight and BMI, suggesting that MUAC and CC can be used to estimate BMI and detect nutritional disordersEN
