Apart from the expected differences in Body fat% and body mass, there were no significant group differences for BMI, waist circumference and abdominal skinfold (p>0.

Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate the association between anthropometric indicators of general and central body fat (BMI, WC, WHtR, CI, triceps skinfold, subscapular skinfold, suprailiac skinfold) with [VO.
Body weight and height were measured in duplicate, while circumferences and skinfold thickness were obtained in triplicate.

Anthropometry: Body mass and height were recorded, along with 6 skinfold measurements (triceps, subscapular, supra-iliac, abdominal, anterior thigh and medial calf) using skinfold calipers (HSB-BI, British Indicators LTD, West Sussex, UK).
The proband, a 43-year-old female, was born with CALMs and developed skinfold freckling at the age of 5 years.
We examined both indirect (BMI, skinfold thicknesses, and waist circumference) and direct (DXA fat mass, total fat-free mass, and trunk fat mass indexes) adiposity measures to better understand the exposure-outcome association, reduce the likelihood of outcome misclassification, and improve our ability to compare our findings to those from previous studies.
The body fat can be determined in the following ways: by measuring the thickness of skinfolds and subcutaneous fat with calipers, since the BFP can be calculated due to the interaction between the specific gravity of the body and skinfold thickness in the specific places (above the biceps, triceps, below the blades and above the pelvis on the right side); by bioelectrical impedance analysis; electrical impedance, or opposition to the flow of an electric current through body tissues, which can then be used to estimate total body water, fat-free body mass, and body fat.
