Losing weight is a process that’s unique to each person. That’s why the team at Transform Weight Loss use biometrics as part of our analysis when we customize your weight loss program.
In addition to physical characteristics, the screening gives the team insight into behavioral factors, too. With assessment in hand, our caring team will help single out risk factors and helps you partner with your doctor to put preventive measures in place.
Dexa: A Dexa scan is considered the Gold Standard in body composition testing. Typically used to measure bone density this X-ray machine uses low dose X-rays to measure the density of your whole body. Most other methods of body composition testing just give you a body fat percentage number and are notoriously inaccurate. The Dexa will break down each body part as well as measure your visceral fat giving you a wealth of information for your health care provider to use in creating your customized care plan.
The REEVUE measures the oxygen that the body consumes. Using this measurement it calculates a patient’s Resting Energy Expenditure (REE), commonly referred to as a Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR). Transform’s health care professionals can screen for abnormally low metabolic rates and pinpoint the precise caloric intake required for weight loss, maintenance, or weight gain.
What are biometrics?
