Will Benadryl affect Body Fat Measurements

  1. Will Benadryl affect Body Fat Measurements

    I was wondering if max dosing on Benadryl will affect you body fat measurements both with the skin fold caliper and the electro caliper.

    I have both and my readings have gone up by 1 to 2 percent.

    I have lost a few more pounds and my BF% has gone up.

    Nothing has changed in my diet and exercise other than taking max doses, and then some, of Benadryl.


  2. I don't see why it could, but it's a possibility. Calipers aren't that reliable anyways. Just use a mirror.

  3. I have not seen benadryl to affect skin-fold caliper measurements at all.

  4. I know that as an anti-histamine, benadryl can affect appetite and such.
