On-Site Metabolic Testing
Metabolic testing is not just for weight loss! Not sure what your employees are looking for in a nutrition talk? Offer a Metabolic Testing clinic on-site. Typically a person’s calorie needs are estimated by plugging numbers into a standardized formula. These formulas don’t take into consideration the individual factors that contribute to metabolism, such as muscle mass, insulin resistance and thyroid function.
The MedGem® indirect calorimeter by Microlife is a handheld portable device that determines a person’s resting metabolic rate (RMR)*. Measured RMR is the most accurate way to determine exactly how many calories an individual should be consuming and is instrumental in developing an accurate and personalized nutrition plan. The MedGem® test is fast (7 to 10 minutes), and gives immediate results.
Our Registered Dietitians can use this data to create a plan for weight loss, weight management, weight gain, athletic performance, and much more!
