The Prevalence of Metabolically Healthy Obese Subjects Defined by BMI and Dual‐Energy X‐Ray Absorptiometry
Nearly one‐third of obese (OB) people are reported to be metabolically healthy based on BMI criteria. It is unknown whether this holds true when more accurate adiposity measurements are applied suchExpand

Body fat percentage is associated with cardiometabolic dysregulation in BMI-defined normal weight subjects.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Nearly 25% of normal weight individuals display abnormal metabolic profiles associated with obesity. As a wide range in body fat percentage (%BF) exists for BMI-defined normalExpand

Comparison of the Classification of Obesity by BMI vs. Dual‐energy X‐ray Absorptiometry in the Newfoundland Population
Although BMI is the most widely used measure of obesity, debate still exists on how accurately BMI defines obesity. In this study, adiposity status defined by BMI and dual‐energy X‐ray absorptiometryExpand

Changes in the transcriptome of abdominal subcutaneous adipose tissue in response to short-term overfeeding in lean and obese men.
BACKGROUND Obesity is caused by the excessive accumulation of adipose tissue as a result of a chronic energy surplus. Little is known regarding the molecular mechanisms involved in the response to anExpand
