KORR had the opportunity to attend this year’s Obesity Medicine Conference in Chicago, IL. While at the conference, we asked Obesity Medicine Physicians what they thought about Metabolic Testing. This is what they had to say.

The study specifically tests ReeVue’s reliability and validity […]
60% of patients who drop out of a weight loss program attribute unmet expectations as a contributing factor as to why they dropped out.

In our medical weight loss clinic, we use the ReeVue Indirect Calorimeter. We use the RMR to set a diet based on how many calories patients burn at rest.
