Data-Driven Body Composition Data for Assessing Underlying Health Risks

According to Qian Ping, a pharmacist at Well Pharmacy, by assessing InBody parameters related to body fat such as Percent Body Fat (PBF) and Visceral Fat Level, it helps to identify obesity problems and assess risks of obesity-related diseases such as diabetes and heart diseases. Furthermore, Qian Ping also highlighted the usefulness of muscle related InBody parameters such as Skeletal Muscle Mass (SMM) and Segmental Lean Analysis in assessing muscle mass and identifying potential muscle imbalances.

And that’s not all as Qian Ping also emphasized the practicality of Skeletal Muscle Mass Index (SMI) to screen for risks of sarcopenia, an age-related condition characterized by the decline in skeletal muscle mass and strength. However, it’s essential to acknowledge that sarcopenia risks can transcend age boundaries and affect younger individuals with low muscle mass, sedentary lifestyles, or specific medical conditions. Recognizing the importance of early detection, Qian Ping is utilizing SMI as a proactive tool to identify individuals at risk of sarcopenia early on in order to provide them with appropriate interventions to prevent further muscle loss.
