Total body water (TBW) and body fat must also be determined. TBW can be measured by infusing heavy water (deuterium), allowing this to equilibrate within the body and then withdrawing a sample of blood. ” Knowing the concentration of the deuterated water, the volume that was infused, and the concentration in the blood sample withdrawn, one can calculate the volume of dilution of the infused labeled water.

Because the weight range for each height was so large, they later subdivided each weight-for-height range into thirds and presented these thirds as being representative of small, medium, and large frame sizes. This table has been found useful by many in estimating desirable body weight, but the user must remember that this table was not based on actual measurements of skeletal size. The table is based only on heights and weights of individuals in the third decade of life who wanted (and could afford) life insurance.

Department of Health and Human Services. These surveys have collected data not only from young adult men and women but also from children and aging adults. These weights and heights have been used to create tables giving weight ranges for males and females. In addition, NHANES made more detailed measurements of skinfold thickness, skeletal size and density, and a variety of biochemical and physiological features using a representative subset of the population assessed. The NHANES tables therefore have a broader database than the Metropolitan Life Insurance tables.
