Ethnic differences in the association between body mass index and impedance index (Ht2/Z) in adult women and men using a leg-to-leg bioimpedance method.
BACKGROUND: Ethnic differences in the association between body mass index (BMI) and body fat suggest that body composition varies across ethnic groups. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association between impedance index - a measure of tissue resistivity - and BMI in adults of different ethnic groups (Asian Indians, West Africans and White Caucasians) living in their native countries.
