Maintaining a healthy weight is critical to good health. Being overweight or obese is a risk factor for nearly every chronic disease – including cancer, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.
At MaxWell Clinic, we focus on your overall body composition, or the percentages of fat and non-fat (like muscle) in your body. To do so, we use a method called bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) on all our new patients. In this article, we’ll dive into what BIA is and what it can tell us about your health.
