Body Water/Hydration Levels
General health standards indicate that one should consume approximately
64 oz. of water per day to maintain a healthy level of hydration. According
to the World Health Organization (WHO, 2001), the percentage of body water
should lie within the following ranges:
Maintaining these levels will help improve your overall health and general
feeling of well-being. If your hydration levels are less than the recommended
levels in the chart above, you should increase your water intake accordingly.
Body Water/Hydration Level – how is it measured?
The hydration level is measured by using Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA).
The same analysis that is used to calculate your body fat is used to calculate
your hydration level. The Thinner Body Water microprocessor again measures
impedance or transmission speed through water. Taking into consideration a
user’s age and gender, a calculation is made that determines the percentage
Please Note: It is not recommended to take the hydration measurements in
certain situations, such as following exercise, after drinking a glass of water,
or directly prior to, during, or shortly after menstrual cycles. Hydration may not
be at its normal level during these times. If you have any questions or concerns
about your readings, contact your healthcare provider.

Bone Mass – What Is It?
Bone is a living, growing tissue. During youth, your body makes new bone
tissue faster than it breaks down older bone. In young adulthood, bone mass
is at its peak; after that, bone loss starts to outpace bone growth, and bone
mass decreases. But it’s a long and a very slow process that can be slowed
down even more through calcium-rich diets and weight-bearing exercise.
Who should monitor bone mass?
Most people have no need to monitor bone mass, but certain groups
– postmenopausal women, men and women with certain diseases, and anyone
who takes medications that affect bone tissue might want to watch for any
decrease in bone mass.
How to monitor bone mass at home
Program your Thinner
Body Analysis Monitor and watch as built-in BIA
technology computes lean body mass and measures bone mass every time you
Typical ranges for bone mass:
Men: 6.5-8.5% Women: 5-7%
The bone mass reading is to be used as a guide only. Watch for trends over
time and contact your healthcare provider for a more detailed explanation of
the readings, and with any questions or concerns.
