This is important as proteins assist in maintaining lean body mass. My measured fat is 31.8 lb and my fat percent is 26.2%. Using the Garrow and Webster equation, I got 31.4 lb and 25% for measured fat and fat percent, respectively, which are both close estimations to my result. My result demonstrates that my fat percent is higher than normal (18-23%). Since I did not exceed the 30%, definition of obesity, this suggests that my fat percentage fall in the range of people who are overweight.
For the average American who doesn’t walk around with a scale that is set to measure in kilograms and a meter stick, it would be quite hard to determine if someone on the street was overweight, by definition. This BMI scale is also flawed because Olympic athletes who have accumulated lots of muscle weight are often calculated to be overweight or obese according to this scale.
If too much weight is gained, serious health side-effects may follow. A large number of medical conditions have been associated with obesity. Health consequences are categorised as being the result of either increased fat mass (osteoarthritis, obstructive sleep apnea, social stigma) or increased number of fat cells (diabetes, some forms of cancer, cardiovascular disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease). There are alterations in the bodys response to insulin (insulin resistance), a proinflammatory state and an increased tendency to thrombosis (prothrombotic
Dr. Maxwell is 5’10” with a weight of 165 pounds. After calculation, we can conclude that Dr. Maxwell’s BMI is 24 which falls in the “normal” range.1 In order to obtain this, we use the “Body Mass Index.”2 Aside from figuring out Dr. Maxwell’s BMI, it is also important to understand where Dr. Maxwell should be in terms of his weight. In order to determine this, we turn to “the Hamwi equation”.2 Upon calculation, we discover that Dr. Maxwell is ninety-nine percent of his ideal body weight which is 166 pounds. Finding the percentage ideal body weight was
We need to keep on mind that even though rehabilitation services research that includes Hispanics has been performed, there is still some controversy around it that might alter results. Wilson (2010) states that the difference between race and ethnicity definitions, and that both concepts may be used interchangeably and incorrectly. It also means that Hispanics might be inclined into selecting more than one race to classify themselves (Wilson, 2010). Wilson and Senices (2005) reported that 92% of Latinos have a tendency of classifying themselves as whites, when receiving any type of vocational or rehabilitation services. Several studies have been performed on vocational rehabilitation recipients, but it is most focused towards Caucasian populations.
For this experiment the hypothesis was that as body mass index goes up cardiovascular fitness will decrease. He based our hypothesis on the fact that if a person has a higher body mass index that would generally mean that the person would not be in the best physical shape. Taking that into consideration, a person with a heavier physical shape will have bad physical health. The heart is something that correlates directly to physical health, which is what makes me believe us believe that someone with a high body mass index will have low cardiovascular fitness. When you have low cardiovascular fitness the heart has to put more effort into working, which is the scenario that we used to generate our hypothesis.
These patients were subjected to anthropometric measurements namely waist hip ratio, weight height, skin fold thickness and Lipid profile was done. Results: Both the groups were matched for age, sex and risk factors other than the one studied, namely smoking, alcoholism, diabetes, hypertension, family H/o. There is no statistical difference is noted between the two groups in age, sex, smoking, alcoholism, Hypertension, Diabetes, Family H/o. In all these parameters compared between these groups the P value is more than 0.05 which is statistically insignificant. Conclusion: BMI does not properly define obesity and the risk of cardiovascular events.
This difference in thickness causes a biconcave disk-shaped appearance in sagittal and coronal cross-sections. The relative length of the ulna must be considered when assessing the average thickness of the TFC. A short ulna (minus variant) is accompanied by a relatively thick TFC, and a long ulna (plus variant) by a relatively thin TFC.4 The blood supply of the TFCC originates from the ulnar artery (UA)(through the radiocarpal branches) and the anterior interosseous artery through the dorsal (DAIA)and palmar branches(PAIA). These vessels only peripheraly penetrate 10% to 40% of the TFCC, and the central and radial portions are avascular. This pattern of supply has direct implications to the healing potential following injury of the TFC and the radioulnar ligaments, with peripheral ulnar-sided detachments demonstrating a superior healing capacity following repair when compared with radial sided detachments.
Although the Fat Acceptance Movement might have initiated for a good purpose, it has taken it to a negative extreme level. Being Overweight became the new normal through the acceptance of it. The fat Acceptance Movement leads to negative outcomes, encourages an unhealthy lifestyle, offends low weight individuals and affects the views of health in young
Body mass index is a diagnostic tool used in ascertaining the prevalence of obesity, overweight and thinness in a human population (Cole and Lobstein, 2012). It is also widely used as a predominant indicator for the amount of body fat (Pasco et al., 2014), which is supported by Gallagher et al., (1996) as a representative of body adiposity. Body mass index is often used as a diagnostic tool to evaluate obesity and overweight based on weight and height as anthropometric factors (Murguia-Romero et al., 2012). Moreover, WHO (2004), described it as a tool for estimating the underweight, overweight and obesity in a human population. Body mass index measurement was introduced by Lambert Adolphe Jacques Quetelet (1842) to explain the connection between body weight and stature in humans, until recently, researchers were able to discover the usefulness of body mass index in estimating body fats (Deurenberg et al., 1991).
The most reliable body composition measurements would be body mass index and waist to hip ratio because it can be reproduced easily between individuals with small amounts of error since the body composition measurement is decisive numbers (weight, height, waist circumference and hip circumference). While the skinfold measurement would be the least reliable of the three measurements because the reliability would depend on the skill of the evaluator and whether the evaluator can separate adipose tissue from muscle accurately. On the other hand, the skinfold test would be the most valid within the body composition measurements since body composition is used to determine percentage of fat and muscle within an individual. Therefore, the skin fold measurements are used to determine body fat percentage while body mass index is used to create definitions of overweight and obesity. Also, waist to hip ratio would not be as valid because it is used to correlate with an increase in heart attack, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, and gallbladder disease compared to measuring body
RDI values suggest that around 1000mg of calcium should be consumed per day. This diet provides an average of 371.53mg per day, less than 50% of the recommended amount [refer to Graph 1], meaning the intake of calcium is significantly lacking. Insufficient intake of calcium could lead to the reabsorption of skeletal calcium, leading to osteoporosis in the long term (MelinePlus, 2015). Sodium is required in the diet to assist in the contraction and relaxation of muscle, and work with potassium to control fluids entering and leaving cells. RDI values suggest that 460-920mg should be consumed per day.
First of all, today, racial prejudice still exists, but it’s not what it was decades ago; Racism has since declined (Observer). Racism spikes concern to many Americans than it did decades ago (Agiesta, 2015). Researchers, John Dovidio and Samuel Gaertner, have researched today’s racism. From decades of surveying many White Americans, John Dovidio & Samuel Gaertner study found the following: When individuals associate themselves with interracial contact, their feelings about the African American community started to change (Observer). A good example of this notion is seen in young White Americans; the news article titled, Race and Reality in America: Five key findings mentions, mentions that “Younger whites are about as likely as older whites
To exemplify, I write “To exemplify, McElroy exploits that the public healthcare system offers more funding to females although males have a higher likelihood to death due to, as the American Journal of Public Health states, “social factors as an important contributing cause” (“Ending Male Bashing Would Improve Male/Female Relations”). It is unethical to withdraw medical help to a whole gender due to their social factors, especially when modern psychology has proven that males live five years less than females (Myers 154). Additionally, the funds aren’t even equivalent and males are not only victimized due to lower funds, but also the fact that their odds of death are higher and there is less being provided for them” (6). I evidently integrate Wendy McElroy’s statement on males receiving less healthcare and textbook evidence of males having shorter lives with my claim that males are victims to gender inequality. Integrating other ideas into my Argumentative Essay allows my argument to grow stronger because supporting ideas make an argument much more
