Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis

Measuring weight is not good enough. Neither is calculating the body mass index (BMI), which at best is a very rough gauge of one's fat level. It is vital to know how much body fat one is carrying. Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis is a diagnostic tool that helps manage obesity better.

Biolectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) is a non-invasive office procedure yielding results in 10 minutes. It calculates fat and lean mass, intra- and extra-cellular water content, basal metabolic rate for nutritional planning, and allows tracking of progress during weight loss treatment.
