Abstract: Objective To analyze the characteristics of bone density and body composition changes in Hui university students and to provide some theoretical suggestions for the improvement of Hui university students’ physical health. Methods The sampling methods of cross-sectional stratified random were used to select 390 samples,aged from 20 to 22,in Hui university students( 195 males,195 females). Body composition was measured by the human body composition analyzer. Bone density was measured by bone mineral density ultrasound bone density,and comprehensive analysis of bone T-score was evaluated. Results The bone density indexes of broadband ultrasonic frequency attenuation( BUA),speed of sound( SOS),quantitative ultrasound index( QUI) and bone mineral density( BMD) in Hui male students were higher than in Hui female students. Normal rates of bone of Hui female students were higher than that of Hui male students. BMI,lean body mass,muscle mass,minerals,body water,protein,waist-hip ratio and basal metabolic indexes of Hui male students were higher than Hui female students in overall and every age-group body composition.However,the indexes of the amount of fat,body fat percentage and oedema index in Hui male students were lower than that of Hui female students in overall and every age-group body composition. Indexes of BMI and T values and QUI were positive correlation for Hui female students,and there was no correlation between indexes of body composition and bone density. Conclusion The condition of body composition and bone density is well in Hui male and female students. The correlation between indexes of body composition and bone density is not clear.
