Measure Your Metabolism
Trying to lose weight?
Do you have a fast or slow metabolism?
Interested in a provider-guided weight loss plan?
Metabolism is the amount of energy needed for your body to function properly. It is measured in calories, which reflects the amount of energy used in our daily activities and from the functioning of our organs. Regardless of what you eat or what diet you are on, it is impossible to lose weight unless you eat fewer calories than your body burns. We can now measure your metabolism and determine the amount of calories you burn per day with an easy 5-10 minute diagnostic test. Knowledge of your daily calorie budget provides you the best information to help you control your weight. You will know exactly how many calories you can eat to reach your goal. Get a personalized program based on your individual metabolism and start a sensible weight-loss program for better health today. We are here to help!

Your metabolism is the total number of calories burned each day. Metabolism is comprised of normal bodily functions and daily physical activity. Since metabolism is an essential component to weight management, it is important for your healthcare provider to assess your metabolism to establish your daily calorie goals.
Why is it important to know my metabolism?
Metabolism is influenced by a number of factors, such as:
Bodyweight Muscle mass
Hormone levels Illness or disease
Even individuals that are similar to one another such as family members or friends can have significant metabolic differences. A previous scientific study indicated individuals with similar physical characteristics (i.e., bodyweight, gender, age, etc.) can have large metabolic differences. This may explain why weight loss varies among friends and family members participating in the same weight loss program.
Patients with a nutrition plan developed with the MedGem device experience nearly double the weight loss compared to traditional methods. Patients indicate the WatchWT MedGem measurement is important to their weight loss success.
Will my insurance company pay for my WatchWT MedGem measurement?
Insurance coverage is dependent upon your policy and is difficult to make generalizations regarding coverage. However, most insurance companies including Medicare will consider coverage if you have an underlying medical disease related to your excess bodyweight.
The day of your WatchWT MedGem measurement:
- Do not eat or drink anything for at least 4 hours prior to your scheduled appointment. Water is OK.
- Do not exercise for at least 4 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.
- Do not consume caffeine or nutrition supplements for 4 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.
