Medically Supervised Weight Loss in Sydney's inner west Leichhardt: extended clinic hours
Cut through the clutter: how Inner West Allied Health Centre can help you optimize your health:
Medically supervised weight loss involves gathering vital markers of your current health status. This includes a DEXA scan which calculates your total body composition including fat mass, where the fat is distributed around your body including around your organs. The fat around your organs, called visceral fat, will help us predict risk of metabolic disorders and cardiovascular disease, our biggest killer. Not all overweight and obese people have high visceral fat and not all lean people (about 10%) have low visceral fat levels. That's why it is important to check visceral fat levels in everyone.
Other important tests we want to look at are liver function tests, cholesterol (particularly NMR studies), triglycerides, fasting glucose and insulin and inflammatory markers.
After studying your health status we can formulate weight loss program that is right for you.
If you are interested in trying a ketogenic diet, a smart carb diet, intermittent fasting we will explain how to do it properly.
