Dr. Bawa Introduces Korr Metabolic Testing


A resting metabolic rate (RMR) test measures how many calories of food energy are required to maintain basic body functions such as heartbeat, breathing and maintenance of body temperature while in a state of rest. This information is useful for proper diagnosis and counseling for weight loss, detection of slow metabolism and with nutritional assessments.

“Often, overweight people are convinced they have slow metabolism. A patient can see the level at which they burn calories and it can be very encouraging and motivating,” explains Bawa. The doctor also uses the information to improve the use of hormone adjusting medication and natural supplements.

The test administered by Bawa uses a precision airflow sensor that measures the volume of expired air and another sensor that measures the concentration of oxygen. Once the factors of temperature and relative humidity are accounted for, the testing instrument provides accurate results. In many cases insurance pays for the test and the doctor accepts most plans.
