Body Composition Analysis
Our in-depth Body Composition Analysis uses our state of the art in-house DEXA Scanning imaging machine to measure your complete body composition, including percent body fat and lean muscle. This scan allows us to assess the exact location and percent of fat, bone, and lean muscle throughout your body. We assess visceral fat around major organs which can predict your risk for diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s and some cancers.
We work with you to determine how your current diet and fitness program is affecting your fat mass and muscle. We help you make better-informed diet and lifestyle choices in order to decrease fat mass and gain muscle mass. Tracking your Body Composition Analysis scans allows for comparisons with prior scans to monitor the progress of your current program and enables the doctor to make adjustments to the plan as necessary.
Private Health Dallas believes Body Composition Analysis should be a part of a comprehensive assessment and is a tool to maintain or improve overall health. The Annual Physical Exam includes the Body Composition Analysis as part of the overall exam.
