The Heart, Diabetes, And Weight Loss Centers of New York Introduce the New Science of Metabolic Diagnosis and Weight Management
Date:8/25/2007

WESTBURY, N.Y., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- "Weight management is serious business. National health authorities are concerned that more than half of Americans are over weight, and for many obesity is not merely a matter of looking unattractive. It is a health hazard. Then why leave it to amateurs -- faddists, diet marketers, and celebrity promoters of the latest 'food system'?"

Dr. Frederic J. Vagnini, a nationally-known anti-aging and bariatric physician specializing in cardiovascular disease, weight management, and diabetes, introduces his metabolic diagnosis and weight management system.

The first phase of the metabolic diagnosis and weight management system (MD/WM) consists of three tests to determine multiple parameters of energy metabolism.

(1) A segmental body composition test measures lean body mass, total body

water, and percent of body fat.

(2) The calorimetry determines the body's basal metabolic rate or resting

energy expenditure and locates a weight management zone.

(3) The patient wears a multisensor arm band 5-10 days at home to

measure four key energy parameters: skin temperature, galvanic skin

response, heat flux, and motion.

The result of this 3-step test is a reading of total energy expenditure per day/per week, of calories burnt, plus physical activity levels (METs), and amount of sleep and steps taken.

In the second phase of the system, based on this scientific diagnosis, Dr. Vagnini sets up an individualized comprehensive weight management program for each patient.

Diabetes Prevention

The weight management program includes an initial cardiovascular workup, comprehensive thyroid, food allergy assessment and detoxification. According to government health statistics there are 40 to 60 million pre-diabetics in the country today for whom a comprehensive scientific weight management program can prevent the onset of full blown diabetes.

The treatment program follow-through includes partial meal replacement, fresh home food delivery services, and frequent medical nutritionist consultations with the use of nutraceuticals.

Finally, there are programs that use pharmacologic therapy, including appetite suppressants, insulin sensitizers, and new injectable weight management therapies.

For further information about the metabolic diagnosis and weight management system and the diabetes prevention program, contact Dr. Vagnini directly at (516) 369-2040.
