So, what does the body composition testing nyc exactly measure?

Body water weight

Do you have any chronic swelling of the body, or suspect any unusual water retention?  Our body is made up of approximately 70% water, so it is very important to know whether or not if there are anomalies within your body that may indicate any medical complications (ie: kidney dysfunction), whether it be at intracellular or extracellular level.  Healthy cells require adequate levels of hydration to heal and function at normal level, so it is very important to know these statistics, whether you are on a specific dietary plans or physical training.

Lean body weight

Lean body weight is the measurement of your total body weight subtracted by fat mass.  Also called “Fat free mass”, it is your weight of all your organs, bones, muscles, skin and water.  Skeletal Muscle Mass (SMM), the muscle mass that we gain through proper nutrition and exercise, is one of the dynamic components of the overall lean body weight that heavily influences this statistic over time.  Due to this reason, our goal at Yejee Acupuncture NYC – whether through acupuncture, herbal therapy, and nutritional guidelines – is to increase this number over time.

One thing to keep in mind when calculating the total lean body weight is that it also encompasses body’s water weight, which may influence the overall numbers over time.  Therefore, there should be more emphasis on looking at the proportion of gain/loss total fat mass in relation to lean body weight to determine if your current regime is working successfully.

Obesity Analysis

Body Mass Index (BMI) has been used universally as an index to determine obesity level, but its reliance of number based on merely height and weight often leads to many flaws.  The most common instance is when the statistics don’t factor in whether the person’s weight is due to high muscle vs. fat contents.  As a result, a highly muscular athlete may score a very high BMI level even though his/her overall fat level is low.

Without the traditional skin-fold caliper tool, our state of the art body composition analysis enables our clients to measure the percent body fat (PBF).  As a general rule, we want to keep this numbers low, as higher fat mass often leads to many medical complications.  If there are any needs for our weight management program, then we also take into the consideration of your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) to see how much calories your body burns naturally at rest.  By knowing this number and your total daily energy expenditure level (TDEE), we can then determine how much calorie you need to consume daily for weight loss.

The InBody 570 Body Composition Analyzer also measures Visceral Fat level during each examination – the fat surrounding your organs of abdominal cavity (stomach, liver, pancreas, intestine).  There’s a growing evidence that people with central obesity have greater risk to a range of health problems such as stroke, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and cardiovascular diseases than people who are simply “overweight”.  Our goal, through proper dietary modification and our weight management treatment, is to keep this level to a minimum.
