What can a doctor use to determine a patient’s body fat percentage?
An instrument called a caliper is used to measure the thickness of fat at one or more sites on the body. Measuring skin-fold thickness gives a reasonable estimate of body fat composition, especially if measurements are taken from several sites.
Which of the following describes a mesomorph body type?
According to Sheldon, people with a mesomorph body type tend to have a medium frame. They may develop muscles easily and have more muscle than fat on their bodies. Mesomorphs are typically strong and solid, not overweight or underweight. Their bodies may be described as rectangular in shape with an upright posture.
What measurement can physicians use to assess an adults risk for high LDL cholesterol?
Direct LDL cholesterol testing, which does not require a fasting sample measurement, is now available; however, calculated LDL cholesterol (total cholesterol minus HDL cholesterol minus triglycerides, divided by 5) is the validated measurement used in trials for risk assessment and treatment decisions.
What method can a physician use to evaluate the status of a patient’s body composition?
A physician can use body composition to evaluate a patient’s overall health. Doctors can find a patient’s composition by using a Seca medical body composition analyzer, a device that measures the patient’s fat mass, fat-free mass, body water, and skeletal muscle mass using six analytical methods.
How do you know if you’re an ectomorph or mesomorph?
Ectomorph: You tend to be long limbed and not particularly muscular; can be skinny without necessarily having lean body composition. Mesomorph: You find it relatively easy to build muscle mass, are medium boned, and generally proportionally built.

Which describes an endomorph body type?

|Total Cholesterol||Less than 200 mg/dL (5.18 mmol/L)||200-239 mg/dL (5.18 to 6.18 mmol/L)|
|Fasting Triglycerides||Less than 150 mg/dL (1.70 mmol/L)||150-199 mg/dL(1.7-2.2 mmol/L)|
|Non-HDL Cholesterol||Less than 130 mg/dL (3.37 mmol/L)||160-189 mg/dL (4.15-4.90 mmol/L)|
What diseases are associated with high cholesterol?
