Body Composition Testing in Greater Salt Lake City
Get a personalized analysis of your unique body composition to reflect your true health. No more guessing or using estimates based on age, gender, ethnicity, athleticism, or body shape to determine your health. With body composition testing, you receive the exact measurements of your body’s fat, muscle, water levels, and more.
Why is Body Composition Testing Important?
Body composition is the total contents of your body including fat, bone, muscle, protein, minerals and body water. Testing body composition, shows your unique level or percentage of body fat and skeletal muscle mass, visceral fat, weight, and body mass index.
You are unique, so even if you fall into ranges or categories that have been used to estimate general body composition based on populations that come close to where you are, it will never be exact.
Body composition testing shows your Forum Health Utah provider the data they need to create your full-picture of health. These results also help your Forum Health Utah provider identify abnormalities and areas to improve, as well as risk factors for developing disease.
Whether you’re suffering from obesity, Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure or more, having this data is critical to understanding your well-being.
Additionally, the results from your body composition test help you track progress as you reach your individual health goals when on a wellness program.
