However, in a situation in which a patient is losing weight without substantially changing his/her relative body fat (as is the case with crash diets), the calculation of FMI will quantitatively reveal the amount of body fat store lost.nHighlight:high sensitivity of FMI (respectively FFMI) to a slight change of body fat storesnHighlight:Sarcopenic obesity has been defined as a low FFM associated with a high body fatnHighlight:relative FFM lower than 73% (ie a relative body fat greater than 27%) in men and a FFM lower than 62% (ie a body fat greater than 38%) in women.nHighlight:FMIs greater than 8.2 kg/m2 in men and 11.8 kg/m2 in women would define the ‘overfat’ status (rather than the overweight range) in terms of fat massn]]>
