METABOLIC TESTING EXCLUSIVE TO NUTRITION FOR LIFE HEALTHCARE

Metabolic Testing

Our Launceston Tasmania clinic now offers a specialised metabolic testing service that can determine how efficiently your metabolism functions simply by monitoring your breathing. The metabolic function test can determine exactly what percentage of Carbohydrates or Fats your body uses for fuel as well as how healthy your cells are. Our metabolic test will also provide us with accurate data on REP (Resting Energy Production) or commonly known as Resting Metabolic Rate. We now have the opportunity to provide our clients with an accurate eating strategy or meal plan designed exclusively for them which will meet their daily energy requirements.

How Does a Calorimeter Work?

The Metabolic Function Test will assess;

  • Energy Expenditure
  • Substrate Utilisation
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Effectiveness & progress of dietary or exercise intervention based on all of the above

Example of Client Metabolic Test Results

Metabolic Test Results

Otherwise known as Resting Metabolic Rate or Resting Energy Expenditure. This shows normal daily resting energy requirements and can indicate normal, high, or low metabolic rate. This result can be used when creating a customised meal plan.

Measures the type of fuels (carbohydrates or fats) we use to generate energy. The ratio of calories burned between the types of fuels to generate energy sheds light on the effect of the various dietary interventions on a person’s metabolism. For instance, it is a measure of fat burning ability (critical for weight loss applications).

Poor mitochondrial efficiency indicates a lack of oxygen entering the cell, thus reducing the capacity of the cells mitochondria to produce energy. Healthier cells are more efficient and can therefore utilise more oxygen from the atmosphere.

The client breathes normally into a mouthpiece for 5 minutes while sitting reclined on a comfortable chair.

The test will measure;

  • The amount of oxygen inhaled
  • The amount of carbon dioxide exhaled
  • The volume of air in each breath
  • The breathing rate

The systems software will generate a client report that will be provided to the client, and a practitioner report so that we can provide our client with accurate dietary intervention strategies. This data will also be the baseline for tracking the clients progress with retesting, allowing us to monitor how well a strategy is working to achieve the desired results.
