Body fat composition analysis.
A DXA scan will be performed in my office to measure the percentage of body fat in the total body, upper vs. lower body and abdominal area. Too much fat, particularly in the abdominal area, puts individuals at higher risk for heart disease, diabetes and certain types of cancer. Results of the scan will be used to create a wellness and or diet/exercise plan.
Carotid Intima-Media Thickness (CIMT) Testing.
This non-invasive scan uses ultrasound to detect and quantify cardiovascular risk. Basic testing will be included in the annual fee. However, if results warrant more comprehensive testing, it will be offered by my office for an additional fee, but at a greatly reduced rate. Results will be shared with you and recommendations made based on your specific profile and risk factors.
I will offer an annual consultation with a registered dietician (RD), and nutrition seminar groups focusing on:
- Healthy eating habits
- Grocery shopping for nutritionally balanced foods
- Making smart choices when dining out or eating on-the-go
- Introduction of online food trackers to assist in food tracking and management of progress
