Children undergoing ALL treatment at UNOP Guatemala who are under the age of 18 years.
- Association of BMI and Body Composition [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months after treatment ]Body composition will be measured by DEXA.
- Association of TSFT and Body Composition [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months after treatment ]Body composition will be measured by DEXA.
- Association of MUAC and Body Composition [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months after treatment ]Body composition will be measured by DEXA.
- Body Composition [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months after treatment ]Aim to establish normative values of body composition (measured by DEXA) in children residing in an LMIC by examine healthy siblings of children under treatment at UNOP.
- Habitual Activity Estimation Scale [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months after treatment ]Percentage of time awake will be documented in each of 4 activity categories: inactive (lying down), somewhat inactive (SI, sitting down), somewhat active (SA, walking) and very active (VA, those activities that make subject "breathe hard and sweat"). The use of wake-up and bedtimes as well as meal times and durations allow the calculation of the total number of hours per day spent in each of the 4 categories.
