Body Composition Analysis

Body Composition refers to the percentages of subcutaneous (the inch you can pinch) and visceral (deep, dangerous) fat, bone, water, and high-quality muscle in the body. The ratio of these metrics influences an individual’s appearance, lab results, and longevity. Our analysis takes a granular look at an individual’s makeup; by tracking the results over time, we can tailor interventions to optimize lean muscle and minimize visceral fat which are generally associated with emerging and chronic disease. As an individual ages, loss of lean muscle is inevitable, and sarcopenia, also known as low muscle mass, has consequences, much like diseases such as the cachexia of cancer and AIDS. Invasion of infections are difficult for the body to resist without muscle and conquering cancer faces similar obstacles with inadequate immune system that results and/or is tied to poor muscle mass.
