Reasons to get a Body Composition Scan

Adipose Tissue Index

Where fat accumulates in the body can have considerably different health effects. Generally, subdermal white adipose tissue is healthy, while abdominal white adipose tissue expansion in obesity is closely associated with metabolic disease.

Most Accurate Method

DEXA is the most accurate technique for body composition analysis trusted by science and elite sports research labs. It is a much more accurate body fat analysis test than BMI, InBody Scan, Bod Pod, hydrostatic weighing, and the caliper body fat test (body fat pinch test).

Track and Identify Body Changes

The DEXA body fat scan can be used to track your muscle gains and body fat measurement in specific body areas. It can monitor the actual physiological reaction of your body to your diet or exercise plan.

FDA-Approved for Body Composition

The FDA-approved DEXA uses x-ray technology to assess bone, muscle, and fat mass in your body. This is the same technology that has been used for years to measure bone density for osteoporosis diagnosis. However, this is scan not intended to be used to diagnose osteoporosis.

Safe

To detect the composition of each square inch of your body, the DEXA uses very weak x-ray beams. These findings not only provide you with a total body fat percentage measurement but also full visualization and examination of your lean muscle tissue and bone density.

Red Canyon Family Medicine Welcomes a New Family Physician, Dr. Stephanie Daniel, MD

FRUITA, CO – Red Canyon Family Medicine, a division of Primary Care Partners based in Fruita, Colorado is thrilled to welcome Dr. Stephanie Daniel, MD as their newest family medicine physician.

Prior to joining Red Canyon Family Medicine, Dr. Daniel served at SCL Health St. Mary’s Medical Center for over two years where she was extremely successful in treating her patient’s acute symptoms. She realized, however, that the brief hospital interactions were prohibiting her from developing long-term relationships. She had the desire to dive deeper into the physician-patient relationship, which inspired her to join a family practice.

“I love that people in the Grand Valley are active, into the outdoors, and enjoy living life to the fullest. I look forward to building long-lasting relationships with my patients and giving them the tools to live their best life,” states Dr. Daniel about her recent move to family practice.

Dr. Daniel grew up in Chicago, Illinois but has also lived in Miami, Los Angeles, and Phoenix. Traffic, stress, and big city life were the norm for Dr. Daniel until she visited and discovered the joys of Grand Junction, which she accurately and warmly describes as a “welcoming big, small town.”

Dr. Daniel is passionate about preventative care including helping her patients with diet and exercise. She believes that her patients know their bodies best and trusts them to be open and honest about their needs and goals. She promises honesty and her expertise in return as she walks alongside her patients’ journey toward better health. She is well-versed in addressing issues that affect the whole patient and has extensive experience in hormone replacement therapy for both men and women and diabetes control and management.

In her spare time, Dr. Daniel enjoys cooking for her family, exercising, hiking, and dinosaur digs with her sons. Her most recent “Trail through Time” adventure is a family highlight.

Dr. Stephanie Daniel, MD is accepting new patients. Please call Red Canyon Family Medicine today at (970) 256-5285 to schedule an appointment.
