Cancer therapies serve the purpose of curing the patient of the disease (“curative” = healing therapy) or to stop the further growth and spread of the tumor as long as possible, to relieve discomfort and to prolong the lifetime (“palliative” = alleviative) Therapy). An indispensable component of oncological care is the so-called “supportive therapy” (supportive therapy). It treats and prevents complications of cancer and survival-related but often aggressive cancer therapies.

How is lung cancer operated?

If the tumor has not exceeded a certain size and has not yet formed distant metastases, surgery is sought with the aim of completely removing the tumor tissue and the lymph nodes affected by tumor cells. The operation plays an important role especially in non-small cell lung cancer – as small cell lung cancer is often diagnosed at a later stage, then other treatments are in the foreground.

The surgical procedure is preceded by extensive research. In particular, it must be ensured that after the removal of part of the lung, the remaining lung sections are able to sufficiently take over the respiratory function. The condition for the operation is a good general condition of the patient; Severe comorbidities often rule out surgery. Furthermore, removal of the tumor should not pose a risk to neighboring vital organs such as large blood vessels or the esophagus. If the expected burdens and restrictions are too great, a different therapy strategy must be chosen.

During surgery, the tumor-bearing lung section and the adjacent lymph nodes are removed. The most common procedure is the removal of a lung lobe (lobectomy). With very large tumors the removal of an entire lung wing may be necessary (pneumectomy). In many cases, however, it is possible to avoid the removal of the entire lung through special, organ-preserving surgical techniques.

Possible side effects:

As a result of the operation, the available breathing area of the patient is reduced. However, if the lung function before surgery is sufficient, it will not be a major problem for the patient, and he will usually be able to compensate well for the loss of lung tissue. Special breathing exercises in rehabilitation also help to improve lung performance after tumor therapy. The first exercises can already be learned in the clinic under the guidance of a physiotherapist and later be continued at home. For smokers, however, they should stop smoking immediately before the operation to improve their lung function.

What happens during an irradiation?

Radiation therapy is the only therapy for non-small cell lung cancer in stages I and II when surgery is not possible and for selected patients in stage III. Otherwise, it is usually combined with chemotherapy in patients with stage III and small cell lung cancer. If cancer has secondary tumors, called metastases, in other organs such as the brain or the bones, they may also be irradiated.

The high-energy ionizing radiation, which is directed from the outside to the tumor, destroys the cancer cells. The total radiation dose is divided into several single doses, which are administered about five times a week. In the so-called hyperfractionated radiation, which can be used in lung cancer, is even twice a day at intervals of several hours, but then irradiated with lower single doses.

In addition to conventional radiotherapy, the so-called stereotactic radiotherapy is also used. Here, the disease is in a few sessions, sometimes in only one, irradiated with a high dose of radiation. This is possible because the beams are directed to the target area from different directions after computer-controlled irradiation planning. There, all the rays meet at one point and add up to the total dose, which is thus maximum at the site of the disease, while the surrounding healthy tissue is largely spared. For this reason, stereotactic radiotherapy is particularly well suited for small tumors and tumors in delicate environments, such as brain metastases.

Possible Side Effects:

Side effects of radiotherapy may be hoarseness and difficulty swallowing. The skin is also sensitive to the treatment. In combination with chemotherapy in particular, mucous membrane inflammation and fungal infections can occur in the oral cavity. A late consequence is a pneumonitis, an inflammation of the irradiated lung tissue. Overall, the severity of side effects depends on the type and intensity of the radiation used.

How does the chemotherapy work?

Chemotherapy uses cell-growth-inhibiting drugs known as cytostatics. They act primarily against fast-growing cells and thus especially against cancer cells. For the treatment of lung cancer several chemotherapeutic drugs are available, which are selected according to individual requirements.

Which medicines are used depends on various factors, including the stage of the disease, the general condition, and concomitant diseases. Usually, two or three substances are combined, with cisplatin or carboplatin as the basic drug in most cases. Commonly used cytostatic drugs in non-small cell

To assist physicians in deciding what type of treatment is more appropriate for lung cancer, there is a recognized numerical staging system that creates benchmarks. At Stage I, the cancer is small and localized in a specific area of the lung. During phases 2 and 3, cancer grows and spreads to the surrounding tissue and possibly the lymph nodes.

Stage 4 of lung cancer is when cancer has spread, or metastasized, from the lungs to other parts of the body. Typically, cancer spreads to the liver, bones, brain or adrenal glands. This is commonly known as secondary or advanced cancer. About 40% of lung cancer patients are diagnosed at stage 4, mainly because the symptoms of lung cancer could include symptoms of other diseases. In Stage 4, the cancer is not curable, but it can be treated. These are some of the symptoms that may help your doctor to diagnose stage 4 of lung cancer.

  • Breathing problems

Lung cancer patients often present with shortness of breath, wheezing, and hoarseness. It is often a persistent cough, and the patient can cough up blood. Sometimes, a chronic cough that the patient may suddenly change for some time may be natural. Because these symptoms may also affect other conditions, they are not sufficient to suggest a diagnosis of lung cancer. However, if a smoker presents with these symptoms, a diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer is likely to be considered by the doctor.

  • Pain

Patients may experience pain in various areas of the upper body, including the back, chest, arms, ribs, and hips. Deep breathing often intensifies the pain that can be felt in the tissues or bones depending on the spread of cancer. It can also be a pain when swallowing. Some people suffer from frequent headaches, which is an indication that cancer could be affecting the brain.

stage-4-of-lung-cancer

  • Weight Loss

With stage 4 lung cancer, there is often a sudden, unexplained weight loss that is often accompanied by loss of appetite and a general feeling of weakness and fatigue. If this weight loss is significant and you do not have a diet, it should be investigated.

  • “Clubbing”

The nails on the fingers and toes can bulge, and the ends of the fingers change shape. This symptom usually develops in the latter stages of lung cancer, so it is a good indicator of diagnosis.

  • Diagnosis

The diagnostic process for stage 4 lung cancer is usually some form of imaging, such as computed tomography (CAT) or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). These scans give a detailed picture of the spread of cancer as X-rays, allowing the doctor to determine the cancerous stage. A radionuclide scan can detect if cancer has spread to other organs, while a bone scan will show if the bones are affected.

The doctor may also conduct tests to determine if cancer has spread to the lymph nodes. This involves removing a tissue sample for testing under general anesthesia. This process is called medias or mediastinotomy, depending on whether the tissue is absorbed by the neck or the chest.

While all these symptoms refer to other conditions, if you experience one or more of them for two weeks or more, you should consult your doctor. Lung cancer is particularly dangerous because of it metastases to other parts of the body relatively quickly, making it one of the most life-threatening cancers there is. As with most conditions, the earlier the diagnosis, the more likely that the treatment will succeed. During treatment for stage 4 lung cancer, the condition will not heal, it can prolong life and improve quality of life, so it is important to seek medical advice as soon as possible.

Lung cancer is a malignant neoplasm in the respiratory system (lungs and bronchi). In addition to breast cancer, colon cancer and prostate cancer, it is one of the most common cancers worldwide. Unfortunately, the number of illnesses continues to increase, especially among women.

Short version:

  • Smoking causes 85% of lung cancers.
  • Lung cancer is caused by a change in the genetic material due to chronic damage.
  • Lung carcinomas can be divided into two groups.
  • Because symptoms are unrecognized or misinterpreted, lung cancer is often discovered by accident during examinations.
  • The treatment of a lung tumor depends on the type of cancer.

In Austria, around 2,500 men and almost 1,200 women suffer from bronchial carcinoma each year. Thus lung cancer is second only to prostate cancer in males and third in women after breast and colon cancer. Most cases are detected between the 55th and the 65th year of life. However, patients can be significantly younger.

The main risk factor for the development of lung cancer is cigarette smoking: Around 85% of all cases can be attributed to tobacco consumption. Hereditary predispositions or contact with other harmful substances (such as arsenic, radon or asbestos), on the other hand, play a subordinate role. 3-5% of the diseases are caused by passive smoking.

From surgery to Targeted Therapy: Depending on the type and stage, lung cancer is treated differently.

Anyone smoking a pack of cigarettes every day for over 20 years increases their lung cancer risk 30 to 40 times. By contrast, a familial accumulation only leads to a doubling or tripling of the risk.

How does lung cancer develop?

In the cells of the mucous membranes of the bronchi and in the alveoli, there is a change in the genetic material due to prolonged chronic damage (for example, chronic inflammation from cigarette smoke). After a long time, this change means that the normal control mechanisms for the growth and death of cells are no longer effective and a malignant tumor develops. At an early stage of development, this process can sometimes be reversed, such as when the damaging effects are stopped.

Basically, two groups of lung cancer are differentiated:

  1. Non-small cell lung carcinoma

The non-small cell type accounts for around three quarters of cancers of the lung. It is roughly subdivided into:

  • squamous cell carcinoma
  • the adenocarcinoma
  • the large cell carcinoma
  1. Small cell lung carcinoma

Small cell lung cancer (about 20% of the disease) spreads rapidly through the bloodstream and lymphatics, but is better for chemotherapy.

This distinction is important from a medical point of view, because the therapy is targeted accordingly.

what-are-the-symptoms-of-lungs-cancer

Which symptoms occur?

In those cases of lung cancer that are discovered at an early stage, these are generally incidental findings: pulmonary x-raying is actually done for quite different reasons, e.g. in case of release for surgical procedures or severe infections suggesting pneumonia.

The most significant problem is that the disease remains asymptomatic for a long time. Often, the typical symptoms, such as coughing, shortness of breath, fatigue or back pain, misinterpreted or ignored. Since the majority of sufferers are smokers with chronic bronchitis and often have cardiovascular problems, the symptoms are attributed to them.

A doctor’s visit is therefore often delayed for a long time. Only the appearance of blood in the sputum or severe weight loss are alarming. More than two-thirds of all cases of lung cancer are therefore diagnosed at a local or systemic (i.e., distant metastasis) stage.

Unfortunately, previous large-scale studies on the possibility of early diagnosis have not shown sufficiently satisfactory results to be meaningful to broad sections of the population. A so-called spiral computed tomography (spiral CT) with low radiation dose is therefore recommended as a preventive check only certain risk groups: chronic smokers over 50 years, especially if at the same time a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is present; in addition, in the case of lung cancer in the family or a workplace that is burdened by inhaled carcinogens (carcinogenic substances). However, the last two factors only seem relevant if the person smokes himself at the same time.

How does the doctor make a diagnosis?

If lung cancer is suspected, the patient is referred to a specialized department where a complete examination is made as soon as possible. Among other things, the stage of the disease, the type of tumor and the spread in the body is examined.

For this purpose, different examination methods such as computed tomography, ultrasound, biopsy or a PET scan are performed.

Which treatment methods are available?

The choice of treatment for lung cancer depends largely on the type of cancer and the stage of the cancer. Treatment options range from surgery to radiation and chemotherapy, to molecular biology therapy.

What is the prognosis for lung cancer?

In contrast to other types of cancer, in the case of bronchial carcinoma, there are no meaningful early detection measures or long-term successful treatment methods. Lung cancer is the only cancer in which the rate of new disease is nearly identical to that of deaths.

Taking all the cases together, current treatment methods achieve a 5-year survival rate of only 15%. However, when early-stage non-small cell lung cancer is detected, around 75 out of every 100 people treated surgically are still alive five years later.

At the same time, lung cancer is virtually the only cancer that has a prevalent and avoidable risk factor. Prevention through smoking cessation is therefore at the forefront.

Especially

Sometimes we can recognize warning signs of our body in everyday things: the otherwise super-fitting elegant loafers have to be exchanged for extra-wide health shoes from the medical supply store? The responsible swollen feet can be the first symptom of right-sided heart failure, also called right heart failure. What is right heart failure in the body and how to recognize Right Heart Failure, read now.

Symptoms of Right Heart Failure

Simply put, in right heart failure, the right half of the heart is no longer working properly. This is often the result of advanced left heart failure. If the two forms come together, it is also called global heart failure. When it comes to the chronic form, the symptoms of heart failure can go unnoticed for a long time right. Common signs of right heart failure include:

  • Rapid weight gain and swollen ankles and feet indicate water retention in the tissues. If you press your finger on the thickened area, a dent remains that can last for several minutes.
  • Caution: A thrombosis (blood clot) can also cause swelling in the leg. In contrast to this disease, in case of right heart failure, however, both legs or feet are always swollen. A thrombosis must be treated immediately.

What happens with heart failure on the right?

Right heart failure is a weak pumping of the right half of the heart, which is responsible for the transport of oxygen-poor blood to the lungs. Normally, the right half of the heart works like this:

  1. Low-oxygen blood from the upper and lower half of the body flows into the right atrium.
  2. From the right atrium, the blood enters the right ventricle.
  3. The spent blood flows from the right ventricle into the lungs, where it is enriched with oxygen. This is called “small blood circulation”.

What-Is-Right-Heart-Failure

What happens if the right half of the heart is weakened?

This is simply explained: In right heart failure, more blood flows out of the systemic circulation than the impaired, right ventricle can carry on to the lungs. There is a backlog of spent blood in front of the right atrium, which can reach into the legs or neck. Sufferers suffer from swollen legs and thickened veins. In addition, this can increase the pressure in the veins so much that the liquid components of the blood are pressed into the surrounding tissue. This causes water retention (edema) in the feet, abdomen or other parts of the body.

Heart ablation is the term used by cardiac specialists for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias in which they deliberately obliterate pathological areas of the heart muscle tissue. Catheter ablation can permanently repair certain forms of cardiac arrhythmias. Beginnings of this treatment method exist since the eighties. Since then, technology has made tremendous progress. Today, numerous cardiology departments perform the procedure.

How does a catheter ablation work?

Understanding the principle of catheter ablation requires some basic knowledge of how the heart works: the heart consists of four heart cavities, two atria, and two main chambers. The beating of the heart is generated by electrical impulses that arise at a specific location in the right atrium. From this so-called sinus node, the electrical impulses spread over the atria and the atrioventricular node (AV node) on the heart chambers and cause the contraction of the heart muscle (conduction system see also graph).

what-is-a-heart-ablation

Insert the catheter into the right atrium for ablation. The conduction system is shown in yellow

If there are additional faulty pathways or sites in the myocardial tissue that trigger further excitement, there will be episodic or persistent irregular heartbeat. This can be treated by the so-called catheter ablation. Depending on the cause of the disease, the doctors either devour the starting point of the additional heartbeats or the abnormal pathways.

When will a catheter ablation be used?

For most forms of cardiac arrhythmia, the doctor will first try to treat them with medication. If this therapy fails, catheter ablation can permanently rid the patient of his symptoms in certain types of arrhythmia:

In Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (WPW syndrome), there is a congenital pathway between the atria and the ventricles as a short circuit. About the short-circuit connection, the excitement reach the chambers prematurely. It comes to the attacking tachycardia. After catheter ablation, when the expert obliterates the extra pathway, cardiac arrhythmia has disappeared in over 95 percent of cases.

In AV node reentry tachycardia, the electrical impulses circulate in the AV node. This causes tachycardia. Catheter ablation is the treatment of choice for this common cardiac arrhythmia and is successful in more than 95 percent of cases.

In atrial tachycardia (“atrial tachycardia”), the electrical impulses do not emanate from the sinus node but from other locations in the right atrium. The chances of a successful catheter ablation are slightly lower in atrial tachycardia than in WPW syndrome and AV node reentry tachycardia.

In typical atrial flutter, there is also a circular excitement in the right atrium. As the cardiac arrhythmia can be permanently cured by the catheter ablation in 95 percent of cases, it is clearly superior to the drug therapy.

ECG

ECG curve for atrial fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation can be caused by electrical impulses from the pulmonary veins. When atrial fibrillation causes discomfort such as shortness of breath or heart failure, doctors use catheter ablation to electrically isolate the pulmonary veins. As a result, the interfering impulses should no longer reach the forecourts. The procedure lasts several hours. So far, he has been successful in seizure-related atrial fibrillation in about 70 percent of cases. For chronic atrial fibrillation, the success rate is just over 50 percent. Therefore, catheter ablation is only used when medications can not normalize the heart rhythm. Often, the patient must continue to take medication after ablation. In some cases, the catheter ablation needs to be repeated.

Although isolation of the pulmonary veins is not possible, there is still the possibility of AV node ablation. By sclerosing the AV node, the atria and chambers of the heart are completely separated electrically. The patient then needs a pacemaker. Therefore, AV node ablation is only an emergency solution.

How does a catheter ablation work?

Catheter ablation is usually performed as part of an electrophysiological examination (EPU) in the hospital. The standard procedure is radiofrequency ablation. Their principle is that the catheter tip delivers heat to the tissue with pinpoint accuracy. Other ablation procedures work with cold (cryoablation).

The inpatient admission usually takes place the day before the procedure so that the medical history can be recorded, the reconnaissance interview conducted and necessary preliminary examinations can be made.

Catheter ablation is performed like a cardiac catheter or EPU under local anesthesia. The patient is conscious. If necessary, the doctor administers painkillers and sedatives. First, the doctor examines exactly the cardiac arrhythmias and their place of origin in the EPU. Then he sets in the heart tissue on the ablation catheter targeted small scars of a few millimeters, to prevent the emergence or transmission of cardiac arrhythmia. After the sclerotherapy,

Continuous lack of blood flow to parts of the heart muscle causes heart muscle cells to die in a heart attack. A heart attack – also called myocardial infarction – is therefore life-threatening. Popularly a heart attack is considered a typical male disease. That’s not quite true, yet the myth persists stubbornly. However, it is correct that a heart attack manifests itself in men with symptoms other than women. Also, the male seems more prone to a heart attack than the female.

Which heart attack symptoms show up in men?

Typically, men notice a heart attack from a sudden onset of chest pain – more specifically, on the left side of the chest and behind the sternum. This pain is characterized by a duration of at least five minutes. Not infrequently they radiate on the arms (especially on the left), the upper abdomen, the neck, the shoulder, the jaw or the back. Often this pain is accompanied by cold sweats, shortness of breath, restlessness, and anxiety, which can range to dread. Affected are also usually very pale. Typical is also a tightness or a feeling of pressure in the chest.

Attention: If you notice these symptoms to yourself or others, contact the emergency physician immediately. In a heart attack, every moment counts. Some sufferers often want to wait and see if things get better. But that can be a devastating mistake. It also shows that patients are repressing the infarction and do not want to believe that it hits them.

These symptoms are considered classic. However, there may be other symptoms that are often not immediately associated with those suffering from a heart attack. These include pain in the superstructure as well as nausea and vomiting. As a result, those affected confuse the heart attack with gastrointestinal complaints.

It is also possible that the typical pain in the chest is completely absent and only atypical symptoms express. In some patients, the symptoms are so weak that they do not even notice them. In these cases, one speaks of a silent heart attack.

On the other hand, one can recognize heart attacks already before their occurrence by certain signs. Since they are not symptoms of the infarction per se, it is called harbingers, which occur in 50 to 70 percent of all cases. Many heart attack patients, not infrequently unnoticed, suffer from the so-called coronary heart disease, in which the coronary vessels calcify and constrict. This process causes the heart muscle in the long-term is getting worse and worse. The result is a chest tightness experienced by the patients, which occurs during excitement or physical exertion. The technical name for this chest tightness is angina pectoris. If it occurs more often, or if the seizures continue longer or become more intense, a doctor should be contacted immediately as it may be a beginning heart attack.

The treachery of a myocardial infarction, however, is that he does not announce himself in up to 50 percent of all cases. Also, infarcts can be completely “mute”. This means that those affected do not realize that they have an infarct. However, this does not mean that these heart attacks are less dangerous than those that are immediately recognized.

How do these heart attack symptoms differ from those of a woman?

While myocardial infarction symptoms are associated with myocardial infarction relatively rapidly in men, the signs are often rather nonspecific in women. For example, women often complain of upper abdominal complaints, nausea and vomiting, and shortness of breath. Only a third of all women feel the typical symptoms. In addition, the characteristic pains in the chest are often very weak or rather appear in the form of a tightness or pressure in the chest area.

In view of these rather atypical pains, a heart attack in the female sex is usually recognized much later. Statistically, women arrive at the hospital about an hour later than men. The late detection of the heart attack is also the reason that women die more frequently from a myocardial infarction than men.

heart-attack-symptoms-in-men

Why are men more affected than women?

Even if the myth is not true that a heart attack is a male disease, it should be noted that it affects men more often. Researchers suggest that sex hormones have an impact on the risk of heart attack. Because the statistics show that women are much less likely to suffer from myocardial infarction before the menopause. After the menopause, however, also increases their risk. Therefore, it is now believed that the hormone estrogen is a natural protection factor for the heart.

In short:

  • Men usually have the classic heart attack symptoms such as long-lasting chest pain, tightness or pressure in the chest and anxiety
  • Men survive a heart attack more often than women because their symptoms are more typical and they tend to be hospitalized
  • Even men may have atypical heart attack symptoms or suffer a silent heart attack
  • Men are more likely to have an infarct at a young age than

On the topic of protein powder, there’s no one particular size. Since protein can provide a number of benefits, including muscle gain and weight loss, it is best to choose a formula that aims to achieve what you want and adhere to your dietary restrictions.

The most abundant protein powder is whey protein, which gets its protein from the liquid that is normally thrown out in making cheese (or the liquid that forms on your yogurt). Although whey is a tasty protein at an affordable price, it may not work for those who are vegan or dairy-free. For those who are vegan, you can opt for formulas that use vegetables (think peas, greens, and more) to boost their protein levels. Besides these two, there are many protein options in between. The selection depends on your taste, your use, and your eating habits. From muscle building protein powder to super green meal replacement, these are the best protein powders women can buy.

For those who for one reason or another do not dare to take such drastic steps during a procedure for using special laxatives. By the way, this method is considered the most common among dieters. The reason may be that the other methods are too painful and not very pleasant. But the best laxatives for weight loss, that’s easy and clear!

 

The Statistics

After graduation experts said unanimously that in recent years, sales laxatives increased several times (to be exact, 30 percent in 10 years a lot, is not it?) And today continue to grow. Of course, there are among these people who actually use the medication for their intended use, because the wrong food, crazy rhythm of life and good ecology has disgusting service to everyone still served, but still the vast majority – those who want to lose weight by any means.

Probably everyone (and especially any girl, girl or woman) has faced it at least once, but with the added kilos problem in their lives. From this disaster, I want to get rid of it forever as soon as possible and get forgotten. In this fight, all means are good. Many believe in the miracle power of special weight loss teas. However, on having experienced this drug, having faced the following lines: extra weight going everywhere and not going, but the new extra weight is starting to add up, and moreover, they are doing it quite fast.

The reason for this blind belief in what they say in advertising. Because the people who did not really understand what was going on to record all those offered on television, firmly believe that after the second set, for example, their options will be similar to the parameters of Cindy Crawford. It is, therefore, necessary to have some clarity about how the laxative to create weight loss really is.

Top Major Misconceptions.

So, what dangers is a non-standard way to lose weight? There are four main misconceptions that prevent and alleviate suffering and not necessary to achieve the desired weight.

  1. Due to the laxative fats and carbohydrates do not stay in the intestine. As you probably guessed, this is complete nonsense. Carbohydrates – one of the fastest growing elements, allowing them to penetrate the blood immediately after they enter the body. After a necessary part of them turn into useful energy balances turn into fats that are not displayed. Therefore, all of the unwanted processes occur long before you take action.
  2. Intestine with laxatives too normal. Yes, but not for long. The intestine works steadily, but only as long as you have not left the administration of medication. Also, it is fraught with problems: after the body gets used to the fact that you are taking a laxative to lose weight, he simply refuses to work and relax, so that their own, to go to the bathroom, you can not.
  3. After reading “Laxatives Reviews for Weight Loss Reviews” section in any forum, you can certainly find tips that will help you to take regular baths to lose weight. That may be true, but only if you follow the right diet, do not eat junk food or fatty alcohol, do not smoke and exercise constantly. If you already created to acquire overweight, then regular stool can serve for you as indicators of bowel can only function properly, in addition to the natural, and the parties do not promote drugs. Clogging body medicine, and you risk injuring your metabolism, and it certainly does not lead to weight loss, but the opposite.
  4. Purify laxative intestine, remove toxins from the body. If you delve into this question, we can conclude that, in principle, not something like “slag” and does not exist. There are toxins in the gut, but they have no relationship, and output is not laxative.

So, how do you use the problem of weight loss laxative rather controversial? That’s why it’s better to try to find another way that is more natural and effective.

A body fat scale determines the body fat percentage by measuring the bioelectric resistance. The bioelectrical impedance analysis makes use of the fact that different body tissues (body fat, musculature, bones) build up different resistances when current flows through. An electrical signal travels from one foot to the other. The greater the resistance, the higher the body fat percentage. Adipose tissue blocks or obstructs the signal, while muscles quickly transmit the signal.

The difference in conductivity is due to the different water content of fat and muscle. Muscles consist of 70 percent water, while fat contains only 5 to 13 percent water. Taking into account body size, weight, age, and gender, the proportion of lean and fat mass can be determined.

The currents used are not noticeable and harmless to health. The bioimpedance measurement uses an alternating current with a high frequency (5 to 100 kHz).

Risks and side effects of a body fat scale

A body fat balance and other bioimpedance equipment should not be used by pregnant women and people with a pacemaker. The current flow could affect the pacemaker.

The accuracy of the measurement results of a body fat scale

The error rate of body fat scales is very high. There are multiple reasons for this:

  • The current is only passed from one leg to the other and not through the entire body. (Foot to foot measurement). As a result, only the body fat percentage of the lower half of the body is measured.
  • Dehydration z. B. after training or alcohol consumption falsifies the result since at a lower salt and liquid level in the body, the current is conducted worse.
  • Sweaty or creamy feet can falsify the measurement result.

What should be considered with a body fat scale:

To determine as accurately as possible the body fat percentage with a body fat scale, you should always measure at the same time of day. The last food and drink intake should be the same long ago. Only the results of one and the same body fat scale are comparable. The result is of little importance due to the high degree of inaccuracy. Meaningful, however, is a long-term change in body fat levels.

In women body, fat measurement with a body fat scale is due to the monthly cycle to fluctuations.
