  • Android
  • DEXA exams provide both total body and up to 14 regional (trunk, individual arms & legs, android, gynoid, etc.) results. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, it has been found that as females age, bear children and approach menopause, this distribution shifts towards the android pattern of fat distribution resulting in a 42.1% increase in android body fat distribution in postmenstrual women. (wikipedia.org)
  • Android fat develops as a back-up source of energy when the male body is experiencing an imbalance, whereas gynoid fat develops after puberty, in order to better prepare the body for supporting a potential infant. (wikipedia.org)
  • Alpha-receptors are predominately in the lower body thus more abundant in gynoid patterns and Beta-receptors are predominantly in the upper body and so more abundant in android patterns. (wikipedia.org)
  • Differences in body fat distribution are found to be associated with high blood pressure, high triglyceride, lower high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels and high fasting and post-oral glucose insulin levels The android, or male pattern, fat distribution has been associated with a higher incidence of coronary artery disease, in addition to an increase in resistance to insulin in both obese children and adolescents. (wikipedia.org)
  • Android body fat distribution is related to high cardiovascular disease and mortality rate. (wikipedia.org)
  • obesity

  • If a person has a high BMI, they are likely to have a high proportion of body fat, especially if their BMI falls in the obesity category. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • Several research investigations have indicated the importance of measuring fat deposition in different body compartments, in order to gain a fuller understanding of the genetic factors that contribute to obesity, obesity-related disorders, such as dyslipidemia, and thereby to a fuller understanding of obesity associated cardio-metabolic disorders, with relevance to the relationship between body composition and energy expenditure. (mendeley.com)
  • This pattern may lead to an "apple-shaped" body or central obesity, and is more common in males than in females. (wikipedia.org)
  • fatty
  • Ketone bodies are short-chain derivatives of fatty acids, which, since they can cross the blood-brain barrier, can be used by the brain as an alternative metabolic fuel. (wikipedia.org)
  • Fatty acids can be used directly as an energy source by most tissues in the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • After 2 or 3 days of fasting, the liver begins to synthesize ketone bodies from precursors obtained from fatty acid breakdown. (wikipedia.org)
  • human
  • The lean (non-fat) components of the human body have an overall density of 1.1 grams/ml. (wikipedia.org)
  • Human body composition. (springer.com)
  • In terms of cell type, the body contains hundreds of different types of cells, but notably, the largest number of cells contained in a human body (though not the largest mass of cells) are not human cells, but bacteria residing in the normal human gastrointestinal tract. (wikipedia.org)
  • Almost 99% of the mass of the human body is made up of six elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus. (wikipedia.org)
  • All of the mass of the trace elements put together (less than 10 grams for a human body) do not add up to the body mass of magnesium, the least common of the 11 non-trace elements. (wikipedia.org)
  • Not all elements which are found in the human body in trace quantities play a role in life. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] The average 70 kg (150 lb) adult human body contains approximately 7027700000000000000♠7×1027 atoms and contains at least detectable traces of 60 chemical elements. (wikipedia.org)
  • The adult human body averages ~53% water. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because of water content, the human body contains more oxygen by mass than any other element, but more hydrogen by atom-fraction than any element. (wikipedia.org)
  • Of the remaining 34, it is not known how many occur in the human body. (wikipedia.org)
  • After the human body reaches around 2,100 m (7,000 feet) above sea level, the saturation of oxyhemoglobin begins to decrease rapidly. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, the human body has both short-term and long-term adaptations to altitude that allow it to partially compensate for the lack of oxygen. (wikipedia.org)
  • mountaineers refer to the altitudes above 8,000 metres (26,000 ft) as the "death zone", where it is generally believed that no human body can acclimatize. (wikipedia.org)
  • The human body can perform best at sea level, where the atmospheric pressure is 101,325 Pa or 1013.25 millibars (or 1 atm, by definition). (wikipedia.org)
  • In the death zone, the human body cannot acclimatize. (wikipedia.org)
  • Nine proteinogenic amino acids are called "essential" for humans because they cannot be produced from other compounds by the human body and so must be taken in as food. (wikipedia.org)
  • nutritional
  • The in vivo evaluation of body composition is essential in many clinical investigations, in order to accurately describe and monitor the nutritional status of a range of medical conditions and physiological processes, including sick and malnourished patients, pregnant women, breastfeeding women and the elderly, as well as in patients with cancer, osteoporosis and many other diseases.

  • steps
  • Why track your steps when you can track what your body is made of? (tomtom.com)
  • TomTom Touch makes other trackers old news because as well as tracking steps, sleep and heart rate, it tracks your body composition. (tomtom.com)
  • excess
  • Another 1 MOhm resistor is connected as a feedback resistor that protects the body from excess current from the output of the op amp. (instructables.com)
  • glycogen
  • Specifically, the body burns fat after first exhausting the contents of the digestive tract along with glycogen reserves stored in liver cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • density
  • And, as explained above, the overall body density (Db) is easily calculated from body mass and body volume. (wikipedia.org)
  • The estimation of body fatness from body density (by means of underwater weighing) was accepted as the "gold standard" for many decades. (wikipedia.org)
  • But these claims are somewhat dubious since the scanning algorithms are validated against body composition assessments based on fractional density from underwater weighing. (wikipedia.org)
  • total
  • Total body fat content in a group of professional football players. (springer.com)
  • The purpose of the study is to investigate the relationship between sarcopenia and body composition and osteoporosis in cohorts of three different races with a total of 17,891 subjects. (nih.gov)
  • About 25% of total body glucose consumption occurs in the brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • joints
  • It is vital for structural support and is found in muscles, tendons, and joints, as well as throughout the entire body. (wikipedia.org)
  • different body
  • The spatial and temporal dimension, where and when, may influence the physiological relevance and the pathological implications of the fat composition of different body compartments, and, as such, is a new element to be considered when assessing body composition. (mendeley.com)
  • amount
  • In the elderly the amount of body fat and a central pattern of fat distribution correlate negatively with lung function, whereas the amount of fat-free mass correlates positively with lung function. (springer.com)
