Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is a commonly used method for estimating body composition, and in particular body fat. Body composition is a more significant indicator of health that just body weight.
High Cholesterol & Obesity:
What most people call high cholesterol is a condition in which three important fats found in your bloodstream go out of balance:
- levels of LDL cholesterol, also called "bad cholesterol", are too high
- levels of triglycerides are too high
- levels of HDL cholesterol, also called "good cholesterol" are too low
People who are overweight or obese are more likely to have high cholesterol.
