Bio Impedance Analysis (body composition assessment) is a simple non invasive procedure that measures and assesses your body structure and distribution. Metabolic Syndrome is partly identified by this assessment and results will help your practitioner decide which nutritional program is best for you.
Metabolic Syndrome is the name given to a cluster of health risks. Several of these risks are diet related and include, low HDL (your good cholesterol), high blood pressure, insulin resistance and abdominal obesity along with high blood triglycerides.
