Body composition from A to Z
The test BIA-ACC (Body composition analysis), it is not the habitual test that you may find in Fitness Centers to obtain solely the Fat and the Free Fat Mass, but it is much more. Our test is useful to get to understand, why we don’t feel well, even if our blood and urine test look all right.
Insomnia, feeling of being tired, cyclical changes in hunger, constipation, feelings of swollen belly, colon irritability and more. How do we do? We analyze 60 components and body levels in our guest body. We check all from: the total sodium content, to the total calcium, bone density, to extracellular potassium up to the systemic inflammation, the amount of muscle and of visceral fat, including the level of hydration in the body.
The test BIA-ACC foresees:
- MUS evaluation (Medical Unexplained Symptoms)
- Test and personalized analysis for each measurement
- Results explanation and comments
- Selection of all parameters that are outside the acceptance grid and identification of related problems
- Prescription of the best nutritional behavior, including supplements and the weekly physical activities, in order to drive all the parameters that had moved outside the grid, back into healthy state. We make sure that the homeostatic balance and the body function properly, resolving all health related issues and problems.
During our life span, the social events and pressure brings us to set our daily behavior differently from how a healthy life would require us to do as: the diet, the physical activity, the sleep/wake cycle, the social relationship, the emotions, the stress. Such behaviors modify our body composition that if not corrected in time, shall predispose ourselves from simple uneasiness to chronic catastrophic diseases.
Our body composition is the mirror of our health status. A regular check with Ti Sana Bia-ACC is a sound scientific method to maintain under control our health and to monitor, if our diet and life style management are keeping us on track, to reach and maintain optimal health status.
Regular check of the body composition will tell us if the diet is improving our health status, if the physical activity is correct, too much or insufficient, if our life style is bringing us towards an inflammatory status or is healing us from an inflammatory status. We remind our guest that chronic inflammatory status puts us all at risk of self-immune and chronic disease.
If we know that, we are losing free fat mass, due to a presence of a chronic inflammation, consequence of a month long stress status. It will help us to put on the breaks and think. We must think that we reached the moment where we need a change to avoid major risks and pain. Let us meet Ti Sana Medical doctors that will listen to your Medical Unexplained Symptoms, will check your body composition, will understand the origin of stress and without giving you any pharmacologic medicine, that carries so many undesired side effects, will show you, the root cause of your malaise and help you to find the way to perfect health.
The BIA-ACC is a leading edge tool that supplies us high quality data about: your body composition, your metabolism and your proper or not body functions. BIA-ACC has been approved and certified by the Ministery of Health.
BIA-ACC Last Release Information
- Total adipose tissue
- Abdominal adipose tissue or visceral (the bad one)
- Subcutaneous adipose tissue (the good one)
- Free glycogen
- Fat mass associated risks
- Fat mass increase, cumulated during the previous 4 weeks as a consequence of free glycogen
The fat tissue distribution in our body has medical consequences; therefore it is of paramount importance to know if the fat tissue is equally distributed on the whole body or it is concentrated at visceral level. The adipose tissue is hormone active and its impact on our health has different influence, depending if we have a pathologic process under development or not.
If the visceral fat is above normal levels, it is associated with metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular problems and tumor to prostate, breast and colon.
We could have a low Fat Mass, but if it is concentrated ad the abdomen, it will have bad consequence for our health (if not evenly distributed in our body). Remember it is not so important the quantity of Fat Mass, but its distribution. The subcutaneous fat is more active at hormone level without any consequence for your health, while as we saw the abdominal fat is connected to chronic and degenerative disease, it over produce inflammatory substance and over stresses our immune system.
ACTIVE CELL MASS EVALUATION: (metabolic active mass), if the values are low, we are going towards a disease with high inflammatory status and liver overload.
HEALTH STATUS LEVEL VALUATION: based on the ratio between inactive and active metabolic mass of our body (if we register a value over 1.30, we have diseases).
SKELETAL MUSCULAR MASS: this is a fundamental value to measure for the general health status evaluation and to plan how to reduce chronic degenerative diseases.
MOTION ACTIVITY INDEX: ratio of Free Fat Mass on Fat Mass.
SARCOPENIA INDEX: (muscular mass loss), there are 2 classes involved. Class 1 is light and easy to recover, Class 2 is more serious status but still reversible.
VISCERAL ORGANS WEIGHT: if we lose weight of our visceral organs it means that we are starting a pathologic process towards disease.
SKELETAL MUSCULAR MASS QUALITY: this is an index for health and of an anti-inflammatory status.
