Metabolic health Clinic
There is a stark relationship between obesity and the onset of metabolic related diseases including cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. Defects in metabolism that can result in such conditions can often go undiagnosed. We offer metabolic assessments, combined with nutritional and body composition analysis to help you understand your bodies energy needs to be able to guide you to your health goals.
Our metabolic health services:
In a relaxed and professional environment, you will work one-to-one with our experts at our Harley Street clinic. We can identify where and how you may extend physiological factors in order to improve your metabolic health.
Our team and research:
Led by Dr Ralph Rogers and Dr Richard Mackenzie, our team of qualified experts have over 20 years of experience. Our team is available to give comprehensive advice that works for you on all aspects of health. The team includes nutritionists and physiologists.
Resting Metabolic Rate & Body Composition Assessment (DEXA)
The proportion of total fat mass and lean body mass represents an individual’s body composition. Body composition is important for athletic performance, and is also a greater determinant of health outcomes than body weight alone. A person can be of average weight but still have high, even risky levels of body fat.
An understanding of your energy needs provides a sound scientific basis for any weight loss or maintenance plan. This technique, which involves resting on a bed for 40 minutes combined with an assessment of your daily lifestyle energy requirements, will provide an accurate assessment of your daily caloric needs. This can then be matched with your energy intake if you are wishing to lose, maintain or gain weight. In combination with resting metabolic rate, we can also provide you with a measure of how much carbohydrates, fats and proteins (substrate utilisation) your body requires at rest.
Resting Metabolic Rate & Energy Expenditure + Carbohydrate and Fat Metabolism during Exercise Assessment
Our state-of-the-art metabolic equipment will measure your energy expenditure and substrate utilisation in real-time at rest (see RMR) and during a range of activities. This technique allows for the measurement of total energy expenditure and maximal rate of fat utilization. This information is then used to target a more individualised and targeted weight loss strategy.
This assessment can also monitor the effects of training and plan for nutritional intake to match energy expenditure during short- or long-duration exercise.
