Data Points To Know Yourself Better

iHealth Core uses the bioimpedance method by using 4 conductors to determine the hindrance of electrical flow through the body and uses that to calculate the total body water. From the total body water, it can estimate the 9 data points. As a bonus, we have a separate sensor for indoor temperature and humidity, so you can adjust your thermostat to keep your body in optimal condition. No matter whether we are young or old, our health should still be the first priority. Knowing your weight and body composition gives you the opportunity to make better decisions regarding your lifestyle habits. Your body won’t always tell you directly what it needs, but iHealth Core can be the messenger.

Weight: You can know if you are healthy for your height. A small number or large number may not necessarily be better.

Body Water: It lets you know how much water is in your system and can help you tell if you need to drink more water.

Muscle Mass: If you are looking to build muscle, this can show you how much muscle you have now

Body Fat: It helps you to adjust your lifestyle. The lower the better.

Lean Mass: Lean mass helps gauge how many calories you burn at rest. It can help you know how many calories you need to intake.

Bone Mass: It tells you how much your bones weigh.

BMI: It determines if your weight may be due to fat. The lower the better.

Visceral Fat Rating: This is important to understand how much fat you have in the abdominal wall. You can use this to manage your health and prevent diabetes, hypertension and metabolic syndrome.

Daily Calorie Intake: Use this to eat the optimal amount of calories you need.

At Obesity Control Center, Tijuana, Mexico, we care about your weight and reach your health goals, so we encourage to monitor your weight daily, be active and exercise.

OCC’s epidemiologist is closely monitoring the COVID-19 status and is actively issuing updates as they are available. The Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization are the most trusted sources online.  While the CDC has announced new mask protocols for vaccinated individuals, there will be no changes for our office protocols for patients, guests, and staff members as the announcement does not apply to hospitals or medical facilities. Masks are still a requirement for all patients, guests and staff at our facility.

Bariatric Surgery and the clash of two pandemics.   

Major metabolic and bariatric surgery Societies and colleges globally are now calling for the safe resumption of bariatric and metabolic surgery before the COVID-19 pandemic is declared over. 

The sooner bariatric surgery can be safely performed, the quicker obesity, type 2 diabetes, and other diseases can be reduced or resolved as they are not only chronic they are also progressive.  Obesity is also linked to more than 40 diseases including type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, and at least 13 different types of cancer.

A recent statement from the ASMBS says “Before COVID-19 began, it was clear that patients with obesity were ‘safer through surgery.’ In the era of COVID-19, ‘safer through surgery’ for patients with obesity may prove to be even more important than before.” Obesity and Metabolic syndrome have been identified as an independent risk factor for adverse outcomes including death among COVID-19 patients.
