Body Composition

Assessment of body composition in terms of lean body mass, fatty mass, and water content

Your body has something to tell you.

Body composition is measured with bioelectrical impedance analysis. It is a quick and easy method to carry out and does not involve any discomfort. Bioelectrical impedance analysis allows for the assessment of the distribution of body mass, water content and the patient’s nutritional state. This type of assessment is useful not only for customising a nutritional plan, but also for monitoring the state of health of those affected by conditions such as obesity, diabetes and heart and respiratory problems.

Parameters

Fat mass

This is composed of essential fat and any adipose tissue.

Lean mass

This represents all fat free mass, which includes all metabolically active cell mass such as skeletal muscle (approximately 40%), non-skeletal muscle, lean tissues and organs (about 35%) and the skeleton (about 10%).

Body water

This is the overall water content.

Visceral fat

This is the fat that accumulates in the abdominal cavity and surrounds vital organs in the torso (abdomen). Research shows that even if your weight and BMI remain constant, the distribution of fat changes as a result of the ageing process and is more likely to accumulate in the torso area, especially after menopause. A healthy level of visceral fat may reduce the risk of developing certain diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.

Bone mass

This indicates bone quantity (bone minerals: calcium or other minerals).

Basal metabolic rate

This is the minimum energy level needed in the body at rest to function effectively, including the respiratory and circulatory organs, nervous system, liver, kidney and other organs. Even while sleeping, we burn calories.

Metabolic age

This is a value calculated by comparing an individual’s basal metabolic rate with the average basal metabolic rate of their age.
