    Anthropometric Correlates and Prediction of Body Fat Measured by Bioelectric Impedance Analysis among Women
    Author(s): Raimi TH* and Oluwayemi IO

    Context: Obesity may be defined based on percentage body fat. Because of the difficulty in measuring body fat in routine clinical practice, a number of surrogates such as body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), and waist-to-height ratio (WHtR) have been proposed. Aims: To determine the correlation between obesity indices and body fat, and the predictive ability of these indices to identify percentage body fat among women. Settings and Design: Cross-sectional. Methods and Material: Seventy nine women who participated in health screening were included in the study. BMI, WC, and WHtR of the participants were determined by standard protocols. Percentage body fat and visceral fat were measured by bioelectrical impedance analysis. Statistical analysis: Pearson correlation betwe.. Read More»
