Correlates, predictors, reference ranges and agreement between percent body fat measured using bioelectric impedance analysis and skinfold-thickness measurements in young nigerian adults

Background: Establishment of population specific normative databases for body composition is important in determining clinically useful cut-points for definition of excessive body fat or obesity for preventive or treatment programmes. This study provides the correlates, predictors, reference ranges and agreement

Bioelectric impedance analysis versus prediction equations for percent body fat in healthy nigerian adults: correlation or conflict

Background and objective: There is dearth of studies on the validation of equations for predicting Percent Body Fat (PBF) in sub-Saharan Africa. This study compared Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) estimated PBF and PBF predicted from equations. Materials and Methods: 1,350
