Association between ratio indexes of body composition phenotypes and metabolic risk in Italian adults

The ratio between fat mass (FM) and fat‐free mass (FFM) has been used to discriminate individual differences in body composition and improve prediction of metabolic risk. Here, we evaluated whether the use of a visceral adipose tissue‐to‐fat‐free mass index (VAT: FFMI) ratio was a better predictor of metabolic risk than a fat mass index to fat‐free mass index (FMI: FFMI) ratio. This is a cross‐sectional study including 3441 adult participants (age range 18–81; men/women: 977/2464). FM and FFM were measured by bioelectrical …
