Synopsis: 
Involutional changes occur in bone mineral density during the process of ageing. Body mass index has a great influence on bone mineral density.

ABSTRACT

Background: The ageing process causes changes in the bone structure, in bone mineral density, and musculoskeletal disorders.

Aims: The purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare involutive changes in bone structure that occur in relation to age in men and women through the study of bone mineral density at the Ward’s triangle and trabecular volume.

An Evaluation of the Diagnostic Utility of Anthropometric and Body Composition cut-off Values in Assessing Elevated Fasting Blood Sugar and Blood Pressure

Issue: 
Pages: 
253–8
Synopsis: 
In this study, the ability of various anthropometric and body composition measurements in predicting fasting blood sugar and blood pressure measured in a group of public service employees was evaluated. The results suggest similar predictive abilities among the various cut-off values.

ABSTRACT

Objective: High blood pressure and diabetes mellitus account for over 50% of annual visits to health facilities in Trinidad and Tobago. This study investigates the ability of various absolute and relative body composition variables to predict elevated fasting blood sugar (FBS) and blood pressure (BP).
