Body Composition Analysis

Body composition
The relative amount of fat, muscle and water in our body and how it is distributed, rather than simple body weight, are far better indicators of our health, conditioning and risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and more.

Accurately determining the amount of body fat, water and muscle you have is the first step, by obtaining a baseline. At SMH we use a medical grade analyzer that uses impedance. We then teach patients the meaning and importance of the values and how to better use exercise and nutrition to improve their body composition. Regular follow-up (usually monthly) measures effectiveness of exercise and nutrition and often leads to patients “taking ownership” of their condition, greatly increasing the likelihood of reaching the goals mutually set during consults.

Integrating BC - measurement, health implications, as well as exercise and nutrition counseling — into TRT is a powerful tool to greatly improve the results of TRT on overall health.

Body composition testing is the process of measuring the body components that determine the level of personal health and the way you look. Weight alone is an insufficient measure of physical condition and appearance.

Sheffrin Men’s Health analyzes many body components, including muscle mass, muscular development and body fat to determine and prescribe diet and exercise consultation. Our measurement tests are critical to preventative medicine. In the search for the best exercise and diet treatments to achieve personal goals, it is critical to measure changes that occur throughout the body on a precise and regular basis.
