Things to note before your body composition test

  • Measure while you are fasting.
    • If you’ve already had a meal, measure your body composition two hours after your meal.
      Since food is considered to affect the weight and body composition, it can lead to errors during measurement.
  • Measure after using the bathroom.
    • Urine or feces affect your weight, but they are not the main components of body composition.
      They can also cause a biological error.
  • Measure before exercising.
    • Intense exercise or excessive movement can temporarily change your body composition.
  • Stand about 5 minutes before the measurement.
    • If you measure right after long sitting or lying down, your body moisture can go down radically and affect the measurement.
  • Measure before the sauna or bath.
    • If you sweat heavily, moisture in your body can be temporarily changed.
  • If you are a woman, do not measure at the period of menstruation.
    • Temporary increase in body water can affect the measurement.
  • Measure at 20-50 ℃.
    • The human body is the most stable at the room temperature. It can cause temporary changes in body composition, if it is too cold of hot.
  • If you repeat the measurement, compare the results after measurement under the same conditions such as the same dress, fasting, pre-exercise.
