Response to: Is inverted BMI really better than BMI in predicting body fatness in children?

    Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

    Abstract

    We thank Dr Singhal1 for their interest in our article.2 The observations made by Dr Singhal are accurate in that inverted body mass index (iBMI) predicted 0.2% greater variance in body fatness than body mass index (BMI). However, we believe our assertion that iBMI is ‘better’ than BMI in our sample population is still valid and appropriate.
