Testing and Evaluation
Each client will undergo comprehensive laboratory testing, body composition and bone density testing, strength and fitness evaluations, stress and VO2 max testing, nutritional counseling, and a doctor consultation. These are the first steps in determining your hormone levels as well as your current health and wellness. Lab testing is provided in our clinic. Our Clinic runs an advanced blood panel to get an accurate description of your health.
Our testing and evaluation stage provides valuable information. However, age management medicine looks at your testing and evaluation stage differently than traditional medicine. We want your levels in the optimal range, the levels you had while in your late 20’s and early 30’s.
Below you will find what we test for and how we test.
The testing enables our staff to customize a health and wellness plan exclusively for you.
Blood Test Profile May Vary Per Location
How It Works
Body Fat, Muscle and Bone Density test with a Dexa Scan
Bone Densitometry or dual-emission X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) is today’s standard for the accurate measurement of bone mineral density and complete body composition. DEXA utilizes a small dose of X-ray beams to provide a total body composition of different tissue boundaries reflecting fat-muscle and muscle-bone ratios, and bone mass measurement. By taking measurements at multiple points on the body, the DEXA scan allows us to evaluate an accurate reflection of excess and essential adipose tissue to evaluate your total body fat percentage. DEXA testing is effective and recommended for the early detection and treatment of age and lifestyle related bone loss conditions such as osteoporosis, hyperthyroidism, hyperparathyroidism, diabetes, and liver or kidney disease, for example. DEXA Scan may sound intimidating, but it is as easy as laying down and closing your eyes for 2 minutes.
