  • Body Composition

    “Kansas In less than ten minutes, the DEXA (duel-energy X-ray absorptiometry) scan provides one of the most highly accurate measurements of body composition available, registering fat and lean mass distribution throughout your entire body. It will show you your overall, as well as regional, fat mass, lean mass, and bone mass. Your scan will tell you if you are carrying dangerous, visceral fat wrapped deep around your inner organs. Visceral fat is linked with increased risk for heart disease, diabetes, cancer, stroke, sleep disorder, sexual dysfunction and other problems. The scan only costs $50.00, and you don’t need a doctor’s referral to have it.
