Resting Metabolic Rate
A Vital Sign for Treating Obesity
Whether or not you are treating Obesity in your practice, all physicians are confronted with obese patients. A resting metabolic rate with the ReeVue is the only reimbursable measurement that shows both you and your patient how many calories will allow them to lose weight. The traditional practice of simply suggesting 1200 cals a day for women and 1800 for men is not scientifically sound.

Do you have an established weight loss program? Do you realize that after your patients reach their goal weight, their RMR most likely has dropped by as much as 25 k/cals for every pound lost? That is why it is SO EASY to re-gain the weight! Measuring RMR frequently after weight loss to set proper target maintenance goals is key to success.

So if you simply want to perform a yearly assessment, refer your patient to a program or set up your own weight loss program, it all starts and ends with a Resting Metabolic Rate test with the ReeVue.Learn more about the ReeVue
