Assessing your metabolic status
As we age, our bodies undergo significant changes, including a decline in metabolic efficiency, which is primarily due to hormonal and peptide loss. The reduction of the synthesis of these important messengers varies greatly from person to person. Metabolic inflexibility and decreased cellular function are two of the key factors that contribute to aging-related diseases. This is why it is essential to assess the metabolic status of a person to ensure that their body is functioning at an optimal level. Without proper metabolic function, our cells are unable to efficiently convert nutrients into energy, leading to a buildup of toxic byproducts that can damage our organs and lead to disease. By monitoring and improving our metabolic health, we can slow the aging process and reduce the risk of age-related illnesses. At Alluring Age, we will assess your metabolic status before we start any type of therapy.
The main tools we use to evaluate your metabolic flexibility are as follows:
- Blood work
- InBody 570 scan
- PNOE breath analyzer
- Genetic Testing
