BACKGROUND The objectives of this study were to develop a regression model for predicting fat-free mass (FFM) in a population of healthy Taiwanese individuals using standing foot-to-foot bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) and to test the model's performance in predicting FFM with different body fat percentages (BF%). METHODS We used dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) to measure the FFM of 554 healthy Asian subjects (age, 16-75 y; body mass index, 15.8-43.1 kg/m(2)). We also evaluated… CONTINUE READING
