I want to determine my body fat percentage.
Every hospital here in Bangkok offers me the InBody method, which is based on Bio Electrical Impedance and highly sensitive to my hydration levels in the measurements. According to some, measuring my circumference will give me a reading that is of comparable accuracy and significantly cheaper.
Bod Pods or other systems using Air Displacement Plethysmography are nowhere to be found in Bangkok.
I'd much rather use Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA, previously DEXA), a technology used for bone density readings but increasingly used for body composition readings. Hospitals here do have these machines, but seem unaware of this alternative use for them.
So I'm wondering ... what kind of data does such a machine produce? Are they standard readouts that even a non-expert could interpret, would a physician used to InBody readings be able to interpret the results, or would it need to be someone who is used to using the DXA machines for body composition readings?
