Apart from a good medical and health insurance, any adult who crosses the age of 35 should invest in:
• Blood pressure monitor
• Blood sugar monitor
• Weighing scales
• Body fat scales
• A good book on diets, nutrition and exercise
These four instruments and the book are vital to monitor your health. You do not have to check yourself on a daily basis. Initially once a month will do. Once you cross the age of 40, then twice a month will suffice. Of course, if have high or low blood pressure or your blood sugar levels are abnormal or the scales begin to indicate you are putting on weight; you need to be more active in monitoring your health as well as taking corrective action.
When you find that you have put on some weight, one of the questions that arise is, just how obese are you? The body fat monitor and scale is the perfect instrument to answer that question. A good body fat scale can be bought for under $100 and it is better to buy branded body fat scales instead of cheap, poorly engineered Chinese imitations.
How does a body fat scale work?
The body fat scale works almost on the same principle as the blood glucose monitors i.e. electrical resistance. In the case of the body fat scale, a tiny electrical current is passed through the part of your body being tested. The reading on the body fat scale is directly proportional to the resistance faced by the electrical current (called Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis). If your body fat is more, the electrical resistance is higher and therefore the Body Fat Measurement scale will indicate a higher value and vice-versa. It is a simple and very effective technique for measuring the quantum of body fat.
If your body fat scale begins to indicate that you are adding fat, all the red flags should go up. Body fat is the trigger for all diseases and medical complications. Coronary heart disease, diabetes, kidney and liver disease, etc. are all connected directly or indirectly to your body fat. The body fat monitor scale is therefore vital to warn you of the first step towards obesity and disease. Based on the body fat scale information, if timely remedial measures are taken (good diet and exercise), your health will soon be back on track.
Many people believe that the weighing scale is just as good. We disagree. The body fat weight scale merely indicates the weight of the person. A young adult who might still be growing and therefore increasing in weight, does not indicate poor health. A person’s weight is just one of the factors determining health. The body fat analyzer scale gives you the other indicator of health – quantum of body fat. Together they give a clearer picture. In any case, how much money are we talking about? Is your health worth less than $100 – we think not.
Body fat scales can be purchased online as well as at any medical supply, drug store or super market. A good body fat scale will add value to your health data.
