We present population data on percentage body fat (%BF) by bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) in 12 287 men and 6657 women aged 30–69 y. In addition, we examined relationships among BMI, %BF and serum lipids (total-cholesterol (TC), HDL-cholesterol (HDLC), TC/HDLC ratio, LDL-cholesterol (LDLC) and triglycerides (TG)) in order to determine whether body mass index (BMI, kg/m2) or %BF by BIA better reflected lipid metabolism. Women had larger %BF than men in all age groups. On the other hand… CONTINUE READING
