METABOLIC LAB TESTING
Your metabolism is the process that your body uses to turn the food and beverages that you consume into energy.
Benefits of Knowing Lab Results
Your age, gender, muscle mass, and other factors will affect the speed of your metabolism. As you become older, your metabolism is likely to slow down. In addition, some prescription medications can slow your metabolism. This change can cause you to feel tired and gain weight.
For example, when you go on a very strict diet, your metabolism may slow down. This health issue will make it even more difficult for you to lose weight with exercise and diet programs. We can use metabolic lab tests to determine whether your metabolism is contributing to your weight gain.
