Listing 105.08 uses Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) growth charts
to determine the severity of a child's malnutrition. The severity criterion in listing
105.08B2 considers the child's body mass index (BMI) and is met when the child's BMI-for-age
is less than the third percentile on the most recent CDC growth chart.
The tables in subsections DI 24550.002C and DI 24550.002D provide the third percentile data for BMI-for-age for males and females from age
2 to the attainment of age 18.
