Table 3 Measured BMR (mean ± SD) versus predicted BMRa

From: Hypertension prevalence and influence of basal metabolic rate on blood pressure among adult students in Bangladesh

  Female (n = 118) Male (n = 66)
BMR vs. body mass
 Measured (kJ/day) 5163 ± 737 6457 ± 882**
 Predicted (kJ/day) 5650 ± 398 6930 ± 715
BMR vs. fat free mass
 Measured (kJ/day) 5163 ± 737* 6457 ± 882**
 Predicted (kJ/day) 5039 ± 192 6151 ± 487
  1. aDifferences between males and females are significant at ** p < 0.001. Differences between measured and predicted by fat free mass are significant at: * p < 0.05; ** p < 0.001. P-values are obtained from paired-sample t-tests
