Body Fat Analysis

Our doctors determine body composition by an accurate technique known as Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis, which sends a harmless amount of electric current through a person's body. The current calculates your percentage of body fat by "reading" amount of fat body mass and lean body mass in your system. The currents measure the opposition that is must travel through which in turn measures your total body water. Your body can hold more water when it has more muscle, allowing the current to flow through more easily. The total body water count is then used to determine the amount of fat-free body mass, leaving the amount of actual body fat when subtracted from your weight. Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis is a painless and very precise measure that our medical weight loss centers use to put you on your way to healthy weight loss.
