Medical - Medical (general)
|French term or phrase: HG (abbreviation)|
This is from a power point presentation discussing how patients in their fifties can take steps to prevent certain health risks.
In a list detailing all of the different assessments/criteria that can be used by the physician to evaluate the patient's health, there is this:
Composition corporelle (MM, MG, DMO, HG, HIC, HEC)
This is probably obvious, but I just can't see what HG stands for (or HIC or HEC for that matter, but I'll post these separately). The only things that I keep thinking about are "hemoglobulin" and "hémisphère gauche", and it's obviously neither of those.
Body composition is based on % of fat, bone and muscle. The first two acronyms address fat measurements, and the third one measures bone density. So my guess is that this fourth acronym (HG) either measures bone or muscle.
I would greatly appreciate any help!
