Are body parts proportional to weight?

Could age and body fat ratio affect penis size?

No such ratio ...: There has been no such a formula to gauge penile size in relation to body fat because body fat distribution is related to aging, health state, disease conditions, lifestyle, etc. In reality, the penile size will not change although abnormal fat accumulation at lower abdomen/pubic region may deceptively devoured & hide it in fat mound.

Generally a bmi less than 18 is underweight, 18-25 is ideal, 25-30 is overweight and over 30 is obese. ...Read more

Some bmi calculators show me the different results some show different it's very confusing . because online bmi calculators only ask height and weight is it possible to calculate bmi without adding body fat% age activity level etc?

Use only Wt. and Ht.: BMI is a screening number, and uses only Weight and Height. Don't add in other stuff to get the BMI number. CDC says: the accuracy of BMI as an indicator of body fatness... varies depending on the degree of body fatness. In other words, among relatively heavy children, BMI is a good indicator of excess body fatness;... among relatively thin children... BMI is more an indicator of fat-free mass... ...Read more

All the online calculators give different results. How many calories burned: 20yo 5"2 female, 113lbs, walked on treadmill 3.8 miles in 51 min. THANKS!

Track weight: Calculation of caloric expenditure is only an approximation. Weighting yourself under similar conditions every day may be more reliable. For example if you weigh yourself at rising in the morning.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

What should my calorie intake be to lose weight? My first Doctor said 1200 but calculators say 2100. 310lbs 5'3" female 22 years old. Thank you!

It depends: Do you want to sustain your weight or lose weight? It may be best to consider weight loss since a 5'3" frame will have diffculty sustaining that weight over time without joint damage. Your calorie recommendations are extremes on a spectrum. I would suggest starting at 2500 carefullly counted for 2 months are drop by 100 every 2 months until you get to 1500. Return to 1800 when at goal weight. ...Read more

What is the difference in GFR calculators? Some tell me my egfr is 59 and some tell me its 62?

Difference in GFR: The answer to you question is that the GFR calculators give an estimated, not an actual, gfr. The calculation used to estimate the GFR is based on a person's age, sex, race, height and weight. The difference in your estimated GFR levels is about 5%, perhaps your weight was different. The only way to know what your real GFR is is to have a doctor order a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance. ...Read more
