Our chiropractic and nutrition clinic offers the BIA or bioelectrical Impedance Analysis. This test measures percent body fat, percent muscle mass, hydration status, plus it is an excellent measure of overall health.
We use blood tests for measuring what’s in the blood but did you know research shows we can use bio-electrical impedance analysis to measure the components of your body weight? This is useful information for gauging overall health or monitoring changes in health and weight as lifestyle changes are implemented. This is the most accurate way to determine if the weight you lose is fat and if the weight you gain is muscle. The best news is that the test is not only accurate but quick, painless, and inexpensive. BIA is FDA approved and has been used for decades in hospitals and in nutrition/health research.
Ask to schedule your BIA today; we can schedule the test so that it coincides with your next chiropractic appointment if that is convenient for you. You will be provided a detailed report on your results right after the measurement is made. Simple instructions for preparing for the test are as follows:
- Do not consume alcohol for 12 hours before the test.
- Do not consume caffeine (coffee, tea, energy drinks, soda) 8 hours before the test.
- Do not exercise or take a sauna 8 hours before the test.
