Body fat, not BMI, tied to foot pain
from MedPage Today
An increase in fat mass index, but not body mass index, was associated with both prevalent and future foot pain, a large community-based study showed. Among a subset of participants, ages 50 and up, from the North West Adelaide Health Study, foot pain was present in 20.2 percent of the cohort between 2004 and 2006 (stage 2) while 36.4 percent of the same group had foot pain between 2008 and 2010 (stage 3) of the study.
