If you are gaining weight unusually quickly, you might have a medical condition, like underactive thyroid, kidney or heart problems. In this case, you should see a specialist in weight management to undergo some tests to find out what causes your rapid, unexplained weight gain.
If your weight is increasing gradually, because of overconsumption of high calorie foods or drinks, and decreased activity, you should consult our weight loss specialist to see how you can achieve weight loss by changing your sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy diet and increasing your physical activity.
Body composition is a method of breaking down the body into its core components: fat, protein, minerals, and body water. It describes your weight more accurately and provides a better glimpse into your overall health than traditional methods. Body composition analysis can accurately show changes in fat mass, muscle mass, and body fat percentage.
DEXA scan is considered the “gold standard test” for body composition measurements, but it uses mild levels of X-ray radiation during this process. We use the state of the art technology in body composition analysis, the InBody 770 scanner, which has been found to be 98% as accurate as DEXA scan, but without the X-ray radiation. This scanner is based on Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA), a scientifically verified method for measuring your body fat mass in relation to your total body weight.
InBody 770 body composition scan takes around 60 seconds to complete and is available at the My Weight Loss Specialists clinic. Your results will be explained in detail by Dr Daiva, who is an expert bariatric physician.
