Some individuals struggling with weight loss have a low metabolism. A few individuals naturally have a low metabolism, and some medications can artificially lower the metabolism.
For these individuals, we offer to check their metabolism using a state-of-the-art method called indirect calorimetry using the ReeVue system.
Once you know your metabolic rate or the rate at which your calories are spent, it becomes easier to match your calorie intake to your calorie expenditures.
At ThinfastMD, we also offer body composition testing. This identifies the amount of muscle, fat, and water you have in your body. This can assist your doctor in prescribing a diuretic if needed for excess water.
