Professional Body Analysis with TANİTA
It is an accurate, precise and scientific body analysis made by measuring 18 Resistance and 18 Reactance Values and 36 impedance values in 6 different regions for Total and Segmental Body Analysis.
It gives information about weight, BMI, fat ratio and weight, muscle ratio and weight, fluid ratio and weight, bone mineral weight, metabolic age and speed, ideal weight and obesity degree, and can be a guide for treatments when reaching the ideal weight.
About Reported Values
Weight: It is the body weight and indicates the sum of the structural elements such as Total Body Water, Protein, Minerals and Body Fat Weight.
BMI (Body Mass Index): It is a calculation process and Reference Ranges are available for the value obtained as a result of this calculation. In the Report samples created as a result of the analysis, you can find the appropriate Reference Values and Differences from the Reference Values by Age and Gender. Briefly, the calculation is made as BMI = Body weight (kg) / (Height (mt) x Height (mt)).
Fat Rate (%) and Weight (kg): Fats are the most important source of energy for our body. Having more than normal fat tissue, which is indispensable for our body's metabolism, can determine the presence of a disease state. Our body needs a certain amount of fat to stay active and healthy. oils; It undertakes tasks such as supporting our joints, protecting our organs, controlling our body temperature, meeting the energy need to be used in case of starvation. The fat ratio in
our body should not be too little or too much, it should be in ideal dimensions and as much as necessary. In the Report samples created as a result of the analysis, you can find the Reference Values for the Fat Ratio (%) and Weight (kg) suitable for the Age and Gender of the analyzed person and their Differences from the Reference Values.
Fluid Ratio (%) and Weight (kg): Approximately 50-70% of the weight of an adult human consists of Body Fluid. This rate varies depending on age and gender. Body fluid, which reaches the highest level in newborns and the lowest levels with age, should be well followed in weight control programs. In the Report samples created as a result of the analysis, you can find the Reference Values for the Fluid Ratio (%) and Weight (kg) suitable for the Age and Gender of the analyzed person and their Differences from the Reference Values.
Total Body Fluid is retained as Intracellular Water (ICW) and Extracellular Water (ECW). Particularly, the ratio of Extracellular Water (ECW) to Total Fluid is important, and when this ratio exceeds certain values, it can be observed that conditions characterized as edema or roughly called water collection occur. Our studies show that this rate is between 38-43%, and if it is above 45%, further examinations may be requested. Edema can occur for different reasons. Stress, fatigue,
excessive alcohol and caffeine consumption, sudden weight changes, injuries such as crashes and falls, long journeys, insomnia, high fever or diseases can affect the amount of this fluid. For this reason, it is important for our health to follow this ratio.
Muscle Weight: Muscles, along with our bones and joints, support our range of motion. It has functions such as the formation of body shape, substance transport and heat production. Total Muscle Amount is given in the Report samples created as a result of the analysis.
Soft Muscle Tissue: The Amount of Soft Muscle Tissue is given in the Report samples created as a result of the analysis. The difference from Total Muscle Amount reflects the amount of fluid and protein in the muscle.
Skeletal Muscles: These are the muscles in the striated muscle group, located around the skeleton, that provide movement and that we move voluntarily. About 80% of our muscles are fluid. This situation varies according to age, height, gender, weight, ethnicity, etc. During dehydration periods, fluid loss is experienced in weight control programs. Therefore, although this loss may be seen as muscle loss in your reports in the first few months of the weight control program, this loss should not be considered as muscle loss, because this loss may result from a loss of fluid structure rather than protein in the muscle.
Bone Mineral Weight: Bone structure consists of organic matter, liquid and mineral structure, this value can give information about the mineral mass in the bone structure.
Segmental Body Composition Analysis: (For devices capable of segmental measurement) A total of five regions are mentioned, namely Right-Left Arms and Legs and Trunk. It helps us to see Body Fat Ratio (%) and Weight (kg), Lean Body Weight (kg) (also called Fat Free Mass, Lean Body Mass, Lean Weight, Non-Fat Mass) and Muscle Weight (kg) locally. This analysis can be done especially for regional evaluation, exercise planning and analysis of body balance structure.
Metabolism Age: It refers to the age that is formed by evaluating the BMI, weight, fluid and fat status with a special algorithm over reference values and that corresponds to this structure.
Basal Metabolic Rate: It is expressed in 2 different units of measurement, kcal and kg. It is expressed as the amount of energy that the body needs daily in a still-resting state without including the activity. It can also be expressed as BMR, RMR, BMH.
BMR/Weight: It is a very effective parameter to understand the Basal Metabolic Rate. To describe this score, let's assume that the metabolic rates of a male subject and a female subject are 2100 Kcal for male subject and 1350 Kcal for female subject. The appearance is that the metabolic rate of the male is much higher than that of the female, but this parameter shows us the real value. Male subject is 98kg and BMR 2100. BMR/Weight = 21.43 while female subject is 49 kg and BMR 1350. BMR/Weight = 27.55
Thus, the BMR score per kilo can actually show that the Metabolic Rate of the female subject is quite higher than male subject’s MR. This score is expected to increase as weight is lost when compared to previous analyzes of the individual in the weight control program.
Ideal Weight: BMI reference values used to assess weight are given as age-appropriate and intermittent values. In the report, the ideal weight is given as the "Ideal Weight Range", which should be calculated by calculating the lower value and the weight corresponding to the upper value for the BMI of the relevant person, and also the ideal lower and upper values; The Most Ideal Weight = (lower value + upper value)/2 calculation is given as the most ideal value.
Obesity Degree: It expresses your distance from the most ideally calculated weight as %. For example, if your Current Weight is 83.4kg, your Ideal Weight Range will be between 59.17kg – 73.96kg. Your most ideal will be given as 66.57kg. Therefore, the Obesity Degree will be 28.10%. This value can be seen as a positive value in case of excess weight and as a negative value when it is missing.
Mineral Amount: In addition to our bones in our skeletal system, there is also a mineral structure in hair, teeth, etc. The report gives you the current Mineral Amount and Ideal Mineral Amount Reference Values in kg and %.
Protein Amount: The report gives you the current Protein Amount and Ideal Protein Amount Reference Values in kg and %.
Lubrication Ratio around Internal Organs: This ratio contains a numerical classification between 1 and 59 developed in parallel with scientific studies with devices. The value between 1 and 15 is considered as the normal range, starting from 1 to the most ideal and up to 15. Values above it fall outside the ideal values criteria and it can be seen that the higher the numerical value, the more it moves away from the ideal values.
Body Density: The calculation method obtained from Brozek's Body Density studies is used. This value roughly shows how many kg the 1lt of the person analyzed is. With a very rough description, it can be said that some people with low body density (fat people) cannot easily sink in the sea or stay on the water surface more easily without sinking. Therefore, if the body density is due to the muscular body structure, this value can be considered high or vice versa. The report gives you current Body Density and Baseline Values.
Muscle Score: An increase in muscle score and benchmarks may indicate an increase in muscle mass.
Fluid Score: An increase in fluid score and benchmarks may indicate an increase in fluid mass.
Fat Score: An increase in fat score and benchmarks may indicate an increase in fat mass.
BMI Score: An increase in BMI score and benchmarks may indicate an increase in weight.
BMR Score: An increase in BMR score and benchmarks may indicate an increase in Basal Metabolic Rate relative to weight.
Metabolic Age Score: The increase in Metabolic Age Score and comparisons may indicate an increase in weight.
