Body Composition Test

Your BIO-IMPEDENCE ANALYSIS (BIA) shows your measurement of body fat in relation to lean body muscle mass. A BIA is usually performed during your physical exam, which is commonly your second visit with Dr. Emina.

You will also learn:

  • How toxic your body is
  • If you are drinking enough water
  • How many calories you are burning in a day
  • Your real age vs. your chronological age
  • If you are burning fat or muscle
  • How healthy your cells are

Excess body fat can greatly increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, etc. Lowering your body fat helps reduce the risk of a variety of serious health condition. Help your body to function properly for healthy aging!
