Our approach to weight loss is simple....
This involves measuring metabolic markers such as resting metabolic rate, glucose tolerance, and insulin sensitivity. Helping us identify underlying metabolic imbalances that may be contributing to weight gain.
Hormonal imbalances can contribute to weight gain. Testing may include assessments of hormones such as cortisol, thyroid hormones, and sex hormones.
Genetic testing can provide insights into an individual's predisposition to certain health conditions. Additionally, may inform personalized treatment plans.
Testing for nutrient deficiencies or imbalances can help identify dietary factors. Factors that may be contributing to weight gain or preventing weight loss.
The gut microbiome plays a significant role in digestion, metabolism, and overall health. Furthermore, analyzing the microbiome can provide valuable information for weight management.
Precision diagnostics help practitioners to understand each patient's unique health needs and the underlying factors causing weight gain. This information is used to develop targeted and effective treatment plans for weight management. A personalized approach like this can lead to better health outcomes and long-term success in achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.
