In a segment of The Today Show which aired on November 12th focusing on men’s health, Matt Lauer demonstrated how getting a body composition scan and blood tests can help establish a baseline for health maintenance. We commend The Today Show for raising awareness for men’s health. At Cenegenics, we have been performing body composition scans and extensive blood work for over 16 years. But we don’t stop there!

A major focus of the Cenegenics Elite Health Evaluation is to better identify those at risk for heart disease, the leading cause of death in the US that kills more men and women than all forms of cancer combined. In addition, 50% of those who have a cardiovascular event (heart attack, stroke or sudden death) were thought to be of low to moderate risk based on traditional risk factors. Clearly, having normal blood pressure, cholesterol and a good family history doesn’t make you immune to heart disease.

The Elite Health Evaluation employs sophisticated technologies including:

  • CIMT (carotid intima media thickness) to look for early signs of vascular disease.
  • VO2 testing to quantify current fitness level, design a scientifically based exercise program and potentially detect significant heart problems.
  • Body composition scanning as demonstrated on The Today Show.
  • Bone density scanning. Low bone density is an increasing problem in men as well as women.
  • Cognitive testing to evaluate important brain functions.
  • In-depth blood testing to evaluate your metabolic and hormonal profile.
  • Our Exercise/Nutrition staff counsels patients with real world solutions to improve their lifestyles. Then, Cenegenics physicians bring it all together to put patients on a course to better health and vitality.

Since its inception, Cenegenics has advocated an extensive baseline evaluation to not only detect health problems at an early stage, but to identify potential contributors to more serious problems. Identifying potential problems allows Cenegenics physicians to implement proactive programs designed to prevent a variety of chronic diseases, rather than having to deal with them once fully developed. Even if you already have medical problems, we are often able to significantly improve or even reverse them in some cases.
