Body composition assessment using bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) in a wide cohort of patients affected with mild to severe obesity

Date:

2021

Authors:

Brunani A., Perna S., Soranna D., Rondanelli M., Zambon A., Bertoli S., Vinci C., Capodaglio P., Lukaski H. e Cancello R.

Journal:

Clinical Nutrition

Topic:

This huge observational study including over 8,000 bioimpedance measurements on as many obese subjects, turns out to be the largest Italian study on body composition in obese subjects.
Thanks to this landmark study, new norms have been defined on specific bioelectrical parameters for subjects with BMI> 30, setting the basis for the development of new equations adapted for patients suffering from obesity. The prevalence of low muscle condition has been analyzed and new ways of interpreting body composition data trough bioimpedance analysis in severe obese patients have been discussed.

Phase angle: a possible biomarker to quantify inflammation in subjects with obesity and 25 (OH) D deficiency.

Date:

2019

Authors:

Barrea L., Muscogiuri G., Laudisio D., Di Somma C., Salzano C., Pugliese G., Savastano S.

Journal:

Nutrients

Topic:

Phase angle (PhA) is a predictor of inflammation status in patients with low level of 25-Hydroxi-vitamin D and enables to stratify obese patients at risk that could take advantage from an accurate supplementation.

Comparison of the Effect of Different Resistance Training Frequencies on Phase Angle and Handgrip Strength in Obese Women: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Date:

2020

Authors:

Toselli S., Badicu G., Bragonzoni L., Spiga F., Mazzuca P., Campa F.

Journal:

International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health

Topic:

BIVA analysis enables evaluation of the efficacy of resistance training programmes. Physical exercise carried out three times a week favours a more significant improvement in body composition parameters such as Phase Angle (PhA) and the handgrip strength test than the same programme performed once a week.
