Medical-grade belly fat measurement requires a person
to be exposed to radiation for 10 to 30 minutes and trained specialists to analyze the results.
A technology validation study was conducted and Bello measurements were confirmed
to be strongly correlated with the Computed Tomography (CT)
Scan for subcutaneous and visceral fat.
Bello provides a better measurement of belly fat that is associated with metabolic
disease when compared to Body Mass Index (BMI).
but is not strongly correlated with abdomen fat, as shown in the graph above.
Weight doesn’t tell you how much belly fat you have.
As a critical indicator of chronic diseases,
belly fat should be closely monitored and managed for your metabolic health.
This clinical trial was conducted with reference to Computerized Tomography (CT).
