14 These formulae require skinfold thickness
measured at multiple sites, to account for the differences in the distribution of bilateral fat at different areas of the body.
measurement provides a good estimate of body fat mass in people with normal weight and normal distribution of fat mass, because it reflects the subcutaneous adipose tissue.
There was also no significant relationship between dietary salt intake (g/day and excretion sodium) and DP (habits, meals and sweets and cheese) with %BF estimated by subscapular and tricipital skinfold thickness
Last, we fitted linear regression models with generalized estimating equations (GEEs) for repeated outcome measures to examine longitudinal relationships of PFAS concentrations with BMI, hip and waist circumference, and skinfold thickness
From Figure 1, it is evident that there is considerable lack of agreement between the skinfold thickness
as determined by the two methods for all skinfold sites as well as the sum of skinfold sites.
In conclusion, it was found that obese children had higher hsCRP levels and blood cell counts than normal-weight children, and that hsCRP levels were associated with greater body circumferences and skinfold thickness
, and a moderate relationship with leukocyte and platelet counts.
Length: Hospitalization Time; BMI: Body Mass Index; AC: arm circumference; AMC: arm muscle circumference; TST: triceps skinfold thickness
Comparison of maximum aerobic power, maximum anaerobic power, and skinfold thickness
of elite and nonelite junior wrestlers.
34 Additionally skinfold thickness
determines nutritional status and assesses disorders and/or diseases related to malnutrition and obesity.
Validation of skinfold thickness
and hand-hand impedance measurements for estimation of body fat percentage among Singaporean Chinese, Malay and Indian subjects.
The values for mean biceps skinfold thickness
were significantly higher for participants consuming low, moderate and extreme levels of ethanol compared to those with high ethanol intake.
2007) used multivariable regression to identify that mothers with greater gestational weight gain had three year old children with more adiposity when measured by Body Mass Index (BMI) and skinfold thickness
