Understanding your health is about much more than the number on the scale. The composition of your body can affect everything from your metabolism to the health of your bones. Bariatric Care Centers offers advanced body composition measuring services, so you can have a better understanding of your health.
Body composition measuring tracks a variety of information:
- Fluid—extracellular water and total amount of water in your body
- Function and rehabilitation—fat mass, fat-free mass, skeletal muscle mass, and fat mass index
- Development and growth—weight, height, and BMI
- Raw impedance data—adipose tissue
This information helps you set more accurate weight loss goals, understand how physical activity impacts your metabolism, and determine if you have signs of bone loss that could indicate osteoporosis.
