Anthropometric study


Specialty of Nutrition & Dietetics

 
The anthropometric survey is made up a series of tests or data showing individual aspects of their body condition and the composition of your body, helping to reveal your overall health, especially in nutritional value. These tests help to detect problems such as overweight or malnutrition and serve to adjust the diets to the personal needs of each individual, especially in the diets. The study is based on weight, height, body mass index (BMI), your bone complexion (waist circumference, hip and arm) and bioelectrical impedance analysis (try to find out the whole body mass to estimate fat mass and body fat percentage). All this information is complemented by the valuation of the daily energy needs of the subject, depending on their age, sex, daily activities and sports.
