Figure 1 Statistical analysis for each correlation. Total fat weight (FWDXA) obtained by DXA strongly correlates with BMI. BMI – body mass index; DXA – dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry; FWDXA – total fat weight obtained by DXA; LMWDXA – limb muscle weight obtained by DXA; r – correlation coefficient.
