Body Composition Testing

What is a BIA? (And why do you need one?)

Bioelectrical Impedence Analysis or Bioimpendence Analysis (BIA) is a method of assessing your “body composition” – the measurement of body fat in relation to lean body mass. It is an integral part of a health and nutrition assessment.

Why is Body Composition Important To My Health?

Research has shown that body composition is directly related to health. A normal balance of body fat is associated with good health and longevity. Excess fat in relation to lean body mass, a condition known as altered body composition, can greatly increase your risks of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and more. BIA fosters early detection of an improper balance in your body composition, which allows for earlier intervention and prevention. BIA also provides a measurement of fluid and body mass that can be a critical assessment tool for your current state of health. BIA also serves to measure your progress as you work to improve your health. Improving your BIA measurement, or maintaining a healthy BIA measurement, can help your body functioning properly for healthy aging and reduced risk to illness. With your BIA results, I can recommend a personalized dietary plan, nutritional supplements, and exercise to help you support optimal health and well-being for a lifetime.
