Next Step- Testing
When you come back for your second visit, we will proceed with lab testing in order to get the best picture and understanding of your metabolism, heart health, genetics, and overall health status.
Metabolism- This is how your body uses and stores energy. We’ll be able to identify how your body processes food and metabolizes fat.
Heart Health- Excess weight and cardiovascular health are often interrelated. We’ll look at cholesterol levels, genetic markers specific to heart disease, and inflammation levels.
Genetics- We’ll look at your specific genes concerning fat and carbohydrate metabolism, appetite control, response to exercise, and nutritional needs. You’ll finally discover why weight management has been so difficult for you and learn how to “bypass” your genes.
Cardiovascular Genetics: we’ll be able to identify whether you’re predisposed to developing heart disease or a stroke, so we can develop a strategy for prevention.
Overall Health- Your results will help us evaluate your overall health status. We’ll also look at your blood sugar, liver and kidney function, minerals, nutrients, inflammation, and hormone levels.
