Abstract Nearly all biological or physiological functions are in some way related to one or other aspects of morphology. The morphometric variables of human body can be measured by the fundamental techniques of anthropometry. To be more specific, biological anthropology is substantially enriched due to the contribution relating to application of anthropometry made by a number of scientific workers in the areas such as, anthropometry and growth, anthropometry and nutrition, anthropometry and… 

Anthropometric - Hormonal Correlation: An Overview

It was found that gonadotropins, luteinizing hormone (LH), and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) have significantly negative correlation with breadth measurements such as, biacromial breadth, chest breadth, waist breadth, pelvic breadth, bicondylar breadth and circumference measurements (as, upper arm circumference, hand circumference and thigh circumference).

Discriminant analysis of pubertal maturation in young males based on anthropometric characteristics

The anthropometric variables showed a high correlation with the classification of pubertal maturation, demonstrating a high predictive level among them, indicating the possibility of developing a predictive equation for Pubertal stages.

Discriminant model possibility of occurrence pubertal uterine bleeding in girls depending on the characteristics of the structure and size of the body

An accurate and highly informative model of the possibility of pubertal uterine bleeding in a general population of girls aged from 14 to 18 years, and as broken down into groups 14-15 and 16-18 years is built.

Impact of supplementation of drumstick and amaranth leaves powder on nutritional status of postmenopausal women

Significant change in food intake and anthropometric parameters indicated that consumption of DLP and ALP helps in improvement of nutritional status among postmenopusal women.

Contribuição das características antropométricas na predição dos estádios de maturação puberal de jovens do sexo masculino

As caracteristicas antropometricas apresentaram diferencas significativas entre os momentos dos estadios maturacionais, sendo encontradas, de forma representativa, sete variaveis that melhor predizem osEstadios de maturacao sexual.

A review on sizing systems for readymade garments in India and different types of body shapes of females

This review paper shows the unavailability of a correct and standardized sizing system for readymade garments in India. Every brand in India follows their own sizing chart which is based on the



Anthropometric-hormonal correlation patterns in fertile and post-menopausal women from Austria.

The most striking result is the change in direction of correlations between metric traits and oestrogen, gonadotrophin, prolactin and gestagen levels between both proband groups, which is probably due to changes in sex-hormone concentrations in women after menopause.

Anthropometric-hormonal correlation patterns in San and Kavango males from Namibia.

While the breadth measurements in all samples show relatively consistent correlations to both absolute hormones and hormone ratios, the correlations to the other body measurements and individual factor scores turn out to be less stable.

Fat distribution in young women: Associations and interactions with behavioural, physical and psychological factors

Abstract Abstract The combined influence of waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) and body mass index (BMI) was assessed on a measure of weight and body-image concerns in a group of 167 young women. Due to rather

Physical activity, genetic, and nutritional considerations in childhood weight management.

To achieve long-standing control of overweight, one should combine changes in eating and activity patterns, using behavior modification techniques, and the onus is also on society to reduce incentives for a sedentary lifestyle and over-consumption of food.

Regional distribution of body fat, plasma lipoproteins, and cardiovascular disease.

Although body fat distribution is now considered as a more significant risk factor for CVD and related death rate than obesity per se, further research is clearly needed to identify the determinants of bodyfat distribution and the causal mechanisms involved in the metabolic alterations.

Change in estradiol and follicle-stimulating hormone across the early menopausal transition: effects of ethnicity and age.

It is concluded that serum E2 levels decrease and FSH concentrations increase with increasing age in midlife women, that ethnic Differences in E2 over time differ from ethnic differences in FSH and suggest ethnic differencesIn the pituitary-ovarian relationship, and that the effect of BMI on E2 and F SH concentrations varies by menopausal status.

Familial resemblance in fatness and fat distribution

The pattern of correlations, which generally includes no spousal resemblance but significant parent–offspring and sibling correlations, suggests the role of genes in explaining at least part of the heritability.

Global adiposity rather than abnormal regional fat distribution characterizes women with polycystic ovary syndrome.

PCOS cases and BMI/fat mass-matched control women are indistinguishable with respect to distribution of fat within visceral, abdominal sc, and gluteofemoral sc depots, despite significant differences in insulin resistance between these two groups.

Extrahepatic portal vein obstruction in children: anthropometry, growth hormone, and insulin-like growth factor I.

Anthropometric and preliminary hormonal evaluation suggest resistance to the action of growth hormone as a possible mechanism in the presence of growth retardation in prepubertal patients.

Blood lipids in young distance runners.

The results indicate that the development of blood lipids in young distance runners is similar to youth in the general population, in contrast to observations in adult endurance athletes, youngdistance runners did not possess a superior blood lipid profile except for HDL-C in the younger age groups.
