  • We compared 24-month body fat changes among postmenopausal women previously prescribed 300 versus 150 minutes/week of exercise in a year-long exercise intervention trial. (hindawi.com)
  • Researchers were blinded to randomization group when measuring body fat. (hindawi.com)
  • No statistically significant difference was found in total body fat at 24 months between the two groups. (hindawi.com)
  • Prescribing 300 versus 150 minutes/week of exercise to inactive postmenopausal women resulted in some long-term greater decreases in measures of body composition but no overall differences in total body fat loss. (hindawi.com)
  • In postmenopausal women, higher BMI is associated with an increased risk of invasive breast cancer [ 4 ] in part because, after menopause, body fat becomes the primary source of endogenous estrogens and other biomarkers of breast cancer risk [ 5 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • Subcutaneous fat can be measured using body fat calipers, which provide a rough estimate of total body adiposity. (scienceblog.com)
  • There is much discussion on the effectiveness of body fat calipers. (scienceblog.com)
  • The tool is considered to be the most popular tool to assess body fat. (scienceblog.com)
  • Further, CrPic supplementation significantly attenuated body weight gain and visceral fat accumulation compared with the placebo group. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Insulin resistance and body fat distribution. (nih.gov)
  • Since 1977, plastic surgeons have used blunt-tipped hollow cannulas, connected to a closed suction system, to tunnel and remove 'target' fat with the aim to improve the body contours and desired proportions. (modernghana.com)
  • Further, both lean and body fat mass were predictors of osteocalcin. (scielo.br)
  • The half-lives of substances such as DDE, the major metabolite of DDT, and some PCB congeners are of the order of 5-10 years, and because of their presence in almost all animal fat consumed with the diet, the concentrations in the human body tend to increase with age because rates of intake exceed those of metabolism and excretion [ 10 ].

  • Measurements of bioavailable and free testosterone, more reliable indexes of biologically active testosterone, were examined for their associations with markers of insulin resistance and body fat measures in 221 middle-aged nondiabetic men. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • In multivariate analysis, bioavailable or free testosterone was significantly and inversely associated with insulin, C-peptide, and HOMA-IR, but this was not independent of total body or abdominal fat. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • SHBG was a significant determinant of insulin, C-peptide, and HOMA-IR, independent of body fat. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • CONCLUSIONS -The inverse association between testosterone and insulin resistance, independent of SHBG, was mediated through body fat. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Increased body fat is associated with reduced rates of insulin-mediated glucose disposal ( 13 ). (diabetesjournals.org)
  • The researchers targeted adolescence because this is a period when adult distribution of body fat is established. (healthcanal.com)
  • They found that in early puberty, there was no difference in body weight, total body fat, subcutaneous or intra-abdominal fat between those teens who were exposed to smoke in the womb and those who were not. (healthcanal.com)
  • Previous studies have shown a relationship between in-utero exposure to cigarette smoke and total body fat. (healthcanal.com)
  • In the late 1980s and early 1990s insightful and powerful imaging techniques were discovered that would further help advance the understanding of the health risks associated with body fat accumulation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Acquired generalized lipodystrophy (also known as "Lawrence syndrome," and "Lawrence-Seip syndrome", abbreviation: AGL) is a rare skin condition that appears during childhood or adolescence, characterized by fat loss affecting large areas of the body, particularly the face, arms, and legs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Subcutaneous fat loss in AGL patients are visible in all parts of the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • The abdominal muscles can be worked out by practicing disciplines of general body strength such as Pilates, yoga, T'ai chi, and jogging among others. (wikipedia.org)
  • Tensing of the rectus abdominis causes the muscle to expand between each tendinous intersection, resulting in the characteristic six or eight pack observed in individuals with low body fat. (wikipedia.org)
  • Relative weight and body mass index (BMI) are nearly identical and are reasonable estimates of body fatness as measured by percentage body fat. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, BMI does not account for the wide variation in body fat distribution, and may not correspond to the same degree of fatness or associated health risk in different individuals and populations. (wikipedia.org)
  • Body mass index or BMI is a simple and widely used method for estimating body fat mass. (wikipedia.org)
  • BMI is an accurate reflection of body fat percentage in the majority of the adult population. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, their mean body fat percentage, 14%, is well within what's considered a healthy range. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, accurate measurement of body fat percentage is much more difficult than measurement of BMI. (wikipedia.org)
  • In those with a BMI under 35, intra-abdominal body fat is related to negative health outcomes independent of total body fat. (wikipedia.org)
  • Drug injection is a method of introducing a drug into the bloodstream via a hollow hypodermic needle and a syringe, which is pierced through the skin into the body (usually intravenous, but also intramuscular or subcutaneous). (wikipedia.org)
  • adipocyte
  • because it possesses a robust blood supply, there is a low risk of tissue necrosis, either of the flap or of the adipocyte fat, and the reconstructed breast can tolerate oncologic radiotherapy. (wikipedia.org)
  • serum
  • It is at present uncertain whether POPs distribute equally to all fat compartments, including fat in serum. (hindawi.com)
  • Most studies have shown relatively little difference in the fatty acid composition of the various fat stores including fat in serum [ 2 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • 4 ] reported that visceral fat thickness was positively correlated to levels of palmitic and saturate fatty acids in serum, but negatively correlated with levels of linoleic and polyunsaturated fatty acids. (hindawi.com)
  • superficial fat
  • The deeper fat layers are suctioned first, before the superficial fat layers. (modernghana.com)
  • It's typically around 10 mm thick (compared to 20 mm thick superficial fat), or 20 mm thick in young athletes such as handball players. (wikipedia.org)
  • examination
  • No preparation is normally necessary for this examination, but if a complementary study of abdominal veins is also required, the patient will be asked to fast for 12 hours beforehand. (wikipedia.org)
