Our Metabolic Evaluation services support cardiovascular and general wellness, as well as fitness and weight management, through a series of innovative testing and assessments.
Metabolic Evaluation Services
At the heart of general and cardiovascular wellness is your metabolism. However, understanding your metabolism requires much more than an evaluation of your thyroid function. Our Metabolic Evaluation services are offered to all members and includes in-depth analysis of your thyroid, metabolism of glucose, insulin receptor function, and oxygen utilization efficiency. Comprehensive Metabolic Evaluation is a two-tiered approach that includes laboratory testing for insulin receptor function to assess why each patient may have difficulty keeping an ideal weight, why menopause frequently leads to weight gain, and a healthy lifestyle recommendation, rather than a diet restriction approach. This is then coupled with an assessment of how your body uses oxygen in its metabolism to maximize its utilization and your overall health.

What is Metabolic Evaluation?
Failed diets, exercise without results, and unmanageable food restrictions are some of the most common frustrations people face in weight and health management.
