Metabolic and Composition Evaluation
If diet and exercise are not having as great an impact as you’d like, or if other medical factors have contributed to your weight gain or could be slowing your weight loss, a medical evaluation may be useful. A metabolic evaluation includes:
- A physical exam
- A review of your health history
- Blood testing to look for vitamin deficiencies or hormonal imbalances
- Testing to determine your resting metabolic rate (calories burned while resting).
Patients can also receive body composition evaluations to determine your body mass index (BMI), percentage of body fat and lean muscle mass. This information will help you set goals for weight loss and overall health improvements, and will allow your provider to address underlying health issues.
