You are a soft target for diabetes.
How does the body fat monitor work? A low electrical current is passed through the part of the body that is tested. The reading on the monitor is directly proportional to resistance faced by the current. If the resistance is higher, then the fat content is more. A higher scale will be shown when the body fat is more. It is very simple way to measure fat content. Fore warned is being fore armed. So take the necessary steps to prevent health complications when you see red in the body fat monitor. People generally mistake it for body weighing scale but you now know that is a completely different health gadget.
