Metabolic Testing

medgem calorimeter

Van Dusen Nutrition® provides metabolic testing using the MedGem indirect calorimeter.  The handheld device accurately measures an individual’s resting metabolic rate (RMR) or the number of calories a person expends daily while at rest.  A key to successful nutrition management is determining an accurate baseline so goals and plans can be tailored to each individual client.

This service takes a total of 45 minutes and while it is typically a part of the nutrition therapy process, it is also offered as a stand-alone service.
