thickness (SFT) was measured by a single trained doctor using Harpenden Caliper from carefully marked sites on triceps, biceps, and subscapular, chest, thigh, and abdomen and suprailiac areas on the non-dominant side.
The quantitative reading by the measurement of the skin fold
thickness with Vernier Caliper is practiced by a minority of veterinarians, not always systematically applied.
5-18 as an index to measure %BF while skin fold
method was used in the present study.
thickness also increases as the BMI increases.
Among the female adolescents, having a hypertensive father was a risk factor for higher triceps skin fold
The following demographic data were obtained on each subject: date of birth, sex, height, weight, date of diagnosis of diabetes, number of injections per day, use or not of a lifted skin fold
(pinch-up) for injecting, needle length, perpendicular or angled approach to injection, most common site of injection and whether or not they practised site rotation.
The assessment tools used to evaluate the nutritional status in patients were: serum albumin and cholesterol level, mid arm circumference, triceps skin fold
thickness subscapular skin fold
thickness and body mass index (BMI).
One key finding is accentuation of erythema in skin folds
, especially in the form of perineal desquamation, he said.
Girls with both conditions had a mean suprailiac skin fold
thickness of 29.
He was accused of taking inaccurate skin fold
measurements on cattle during two visits he made to a farm in April 2009 to undertake TB testing.
The Pearson product moment correlation coefficient was also used to find out the relationship between body weight (BMI) and percent body fat scores obtained from skin fold
thickness, body circumference measurements and BIA.
Each subject's body weight, fat and non-fat mass, skin fold
thickness, and waist/hip/thigh circumferences were measured.
