Bioelectrical Impedence Analysis

BIA – Bio Impedance Analysis for Body Composition

BIA’s are performed on most patients that come through the clinic. A simple procedure that involves placing adhesive pads and wires to your hand and foot allows the machine to provide data on your body composition. This data will include lean body mass, fat mass, hydration status, intracellular and extracellular water, phase angle, BMI and Basal Metabolic Rate – your metabolism.

Using this data, we can objectively tract changes in your physical body, individualize meal plans, set up medically supervised weight loss programs and follow inflammatory / allergic type reactions.
