The purpose of this study was to identify the BIA (bioimpedance analysis) equation that yields the best estimate of body composition for 122 premenopausal African-American women (18-40 yr). Total body density (Db) was determined by hydrodensitometry at residual lung volume and converted to %BFHD using the Siri (31) formula, %BFHD was used to calculate… CONTINUE READING
