did they give you a measure like BMI? Just checked my BMI via the Heart Foundation calculator - 22.5. I need to get taller to get a lower number.

Yes there was a BMI 26, but I knew that, but the DXA gives a breakdown of Fat, Lean & Total mass in all bits of the body:

L & R Arm
Trunk
L & R Leg
Head

27.3% Fat in my head (apparently normal)

Also bone mass by body bits and I am in the green (good) zone for Osteo risk
