Brief Summary:
Assess the relationship between body composition, metabolism, and dietary needs in people with spinal cord injury compared to their healthy controls that are age and sex matched.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Spinal Cord Injuries Dietary Habits Diagnostic Test: Resting Metabolic Rate Diagnostic Test: Body Composition Behavioral: Dietary Assessment

Detailed Description:
This study will quantify body composition and resting metabolic rate and then compare these parameters to results from a nutritional analysis. Participants will have two study visits that include physical exam, blood draws, resting metabolic rate, Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) scan, and dietary assessments.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Spinal Cord Injury Group
Body Composition, Resting Metabolic Rate, and dietary assessment
Diagnostic Test: Resting Metabolic Rate
30 minute test to determine daily caloric needs

Diagnostic Test: Body Composition
Total Body DXA scan to determine fat mass, fat-free mass, and percent body fat

Behavioral: Dietary Assessment
Self administered dietary logs

Healthy Controls
Body Composition, Resting Metabolic Rate, and dietary assessment
Diagnostic Test: Resting Metabolic Rate
30 minute test to determine daily caloric needs

Diagnostic Test: Body Composition
Total Body DXA scan to determine fat mass, fat-free mass, and percent body fat

Behavioral: Dietary Assessment
Self administered dietary logs




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Body fat [ Time Frame: Week 2 ]
  2. Fat Free Mass [ Time Frame: Week 2 ]
    lbs

  3. Fat Mass [ Time Frame: Week 2 ]
    lbs

  4. Resting Metabolic Rate [ Time Frame: Week 2 ]
  5. Dietary Assessment Using Self-Reported Diary Questionaire [ Time Frame: Week 2 ]
    Dietary information will be collected from the participants using a self-reported food frequency diary questionnaire. The diary will log food, amount eaten, how it was prepared, and brand name of participant food intake at breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner.
