Body composition scans
Body composition analysis is one of the methods I use in understanding the health status of my patients. Body composition is used to describe the percentages
of fat, bone, water, and muscle in the human body.
The results help me understand where your fat, muscle, and hydration levels are at and act as a guide to help me help you achieve your health goals. A healthy balance between fat and muscle is vital for health and wellness throughout life.
Scientific evidence shows that a healthy body composition will increase your lifespan; reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes and insulin resistance.
Why do I scan all my patients at their first visit?
- The results are instant and provide me with baseline data on my patients health
- Allows me to advise my patients on nutrition and exercise according to their results
- Progress can be tracked at visits to ensure the patient is moving toward their health goals
- When treating certain conditions such as insulin resistance or an under active thyroid, their weight loss can be tracked
