What is body composition?

Body composition is used to describe the percentages of fat, bone, water, and muscle in human bodies. Two people of same sex and body weight may look completely different from each other because they have a different body composition.

Body composition and growth are key components of health in both individuals and populations. The ongoing epidemic of obesity in children and adults has highlighted the importance of understanding body fat levels for short-term and long-term health. However, other components of body composition also influence health outcomes, and its measurement is increasingly valuable in clinical practice.

Why do you need to differentiate between muscle and fat?

Health practitioners universally agree that too much fat is a serious health risk. Problems such as hypertension, elevated blood lipids (fats and cholesterol), diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, respiratory dysfunction, gallbladder disease, and a myriad of other health problems are all related to obesity.  The ongoing epidemic of obesity in children and adults has highlighted the importance of knowing a person’s body fat for short-term and long-term health. An important part of understanding a user’s health is differentiating between what is healthy and what is not, especially when it comes to fat.  It’s common to assume that having as little fat as possible is healthy. However, being thin does not automatically reduce one’s health risk. Being thin refers to weighing less than the recommended values in age-height-weight tables. Leanness, however, refers to the muscle, bone, and fat composition of one’s body weight. Being lean intrinsically indicates greater muscle mass development than thin.

45 Second Tests

Quickly measure fat mass, muscle mass, and body water levels in less than a minute. No dunking. No pinching. No discomfort. Simply stand on the device and hold the hand electrodes.

Explore the InBody 570 Result Sheet

Each InBody Test will print out a full-page results sheet detailing the muscle, fat, and water values of the user. The InBody 570 provides you with lean mass and fat values in each segment of the body to give you proper assessment of body composition.

Segmental Fat and Lean Mass Analysis

Identify how many pounds of lean mass are in each body segment. This can be used to determine how specific diets and exercises are affecting the body composition.

Injury Identification

Identify and track inflammation, swelling and even joint injuries with ECW/TBW Analysis. Monitor these changes over time in the Body Composition History chart.

Complications of visceral fat

Visceral fat can start causing health problems immediately. It can increase insulin resistance, even if you’ve never had diabetes or prediabetes. Research has found that this may be because a retinol-binding protein that increases insulin resistance is secreted by this type of fat. Visceral fat can also raise blood pressure quickly.  Most importantly, carrying excess visceral fat increases your risk for developing several serious long-term, life-threatening medical conditions. 

These include:

heart attacks and heart disease

type 2 diabetes

stroke

breast cancer

colorectal cancer

Alzheimer’s disease
