Healthy eating and metabolic awareness play a significant role in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Related services at Powell Wellness Center include metabolic testing through BodyGem and A1C testing of blood glucose levels.
PWC is pleased to offer metabolic testing, called BodyGem, which measures resting metabolic rate. Until recently, there was no convenient way to measure your metabolism. Now, with the BodyGem device, you can easily and quickly learn your metabolic rate with a simple breath test that PWC wellness professionals can administer in 10 minutes or less. Contact PWC Front Desk at 540-445-5406 to schedule an appointment for BodyGem testing ($30 fee).
A1C Testing and Diabetes Education
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost 18.8 million people in the United States have been diagnosed with diabetes. An estimated 79 million people have prediabetes with blood glucose levels in the prediabetic range. Because of these statistics, diabetes care and education is important. We offer A1C testing to determine your diabetes risk. Check our calendar of events for programs related to diabetes or call the PWC Front Desk at 540-445-5406 to schedule an appointment for an A1C test ($25 fee).
