How do we evaluate malnutrition in children?

  1. Many types of digestive disorders can result in malnutrition and growth retardation. To meet the malnutrition criteria in 105.08A, we need documentation of a digestive disorder with associated chronic nutritional deficiency despite prescribed treatment.
  2. We evaluate the growth retardation criteria in 105.08B by using the most recent growth charts by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
    1. If you have not attained age 2, we use weight-for-length measurements to assess whether your impairment meets the requirement of 105.08B1. CDC weight-for-length charts are age- and gender-specific.
    2. If you are a child age 2 or older, we use BMI-for-age measurements to assess whether your impairment meets the requirement of 105.08B2. BMI is the ratio of your weight to the square of your height. BMI-for-age is plotted on the CDC’s gender-specific growth charts.
    3. We calculate BMI using inches and pounds, meters and kilograms, or centimeters and kilograms. We must have measurements of your weight and height without shoes for these calculations.
    4. We calculate BMI using one of the following formulas:

English Formula

BMI = (Weight in Pounds ÷[(Height in Inches) x (Height in Inches)] ) x 703

Metric Formula

BMI = Weight in Kilograms ÷[(Height in Meters) x (Height in Meters)]
or
BMI = (Weight in Kilograms ÷[(Height in Centimeters) x (Height in Centimeters)] ) x 10,000
