BMD For Fat Analysis
What is BMD For Fat Analysis?
The body mineral density test or BMD test is useful for checking the bone health of patients. Doctors suggest this test to measure the fat to bone mineral density and its relation with increasing fat amount. This central dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry or DXA testing is a common choice for patients.
Doctors also use BMD to check for broken bone risk, check osteoporosis content and the effectiveness of a treatment. The test is generally painless. In most cases, this test helps identify the bone density amount in fingers, lower, arm, heel, or wrist. Women under 60 years of age are mostly advised to get this test. BMD and Hydrostatic weighing are equally important for body fat density measurement.
