BioMechanical + Musculoskeletal Evaluation (BME)

Your evaluation consists of two 1 hour sessions. The first hour, our Biomechanical Consultant will assess you from head to toe, analyzing your posture, alignment, gait, muscle strength, range of motion, flexibility, and any pain or discomfort you feel in your daily activities. You’ll then receive personalized exercise instructions, including photographs, based on your unique needs.

The second hour, your Exercise Physiologist will make sure you’re performing every exercise correctly, and together you will design your daily home fitness routine based on your goals, your interests, and your schedule.

DEXA Body Composition Scan

The DEXA Body Composition Scan calculates your percentage of lean muscle and body fat from head to toe. With the Pritikin Program, you certainly lose fat. But you also gain lean muscle mass. The more lean muscle you have, the more calories you burn- and the quicker you reach the leaner body you want.

Medical Services

Aorta Ultrasound

Using digital ultrasound technology we will be able to determine the levels of flow and diameters of your abdominal aorta. The aorta is the major arterial distribution highway for the core of your body and is the main culprit for aneurysmal disease causing thousands of deaths, despite a lack of warning symptoms.

Echocardiogram

We will evaluate function of the beating heart, imaging noninvasively your heart muscle and valves of the heart. We will also define both contractile and relaxation phases of the heartbeat as well as function of the heart valves.

Extremities (Lower Artierial)

This test visualizes the arteries of the lower extremities to detect whether peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is developing. PAD, common among people with diabetes, is often, but not always, characterized by leg pain. Having PAD dramatically increases the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Extremities (Lower Vascular)

Lower limb circulatory disease is one of the main pathologies affecting individuals suffering from many diseases including diabetes, high cholesterol and obesity, but goes largely unchecked. Using our digital ultrasound technology we will be able to determine levels of vascular flow throughout the lower limbs and determine specific plaque build ups at target regions within the arterial system of the legs, giving you an overall understanding of vascular disorder and risk factors within your body.

Intimal-Medial Thickness (IMT) Test

This test measures the wall of the carotid arteries, correlating with the effects of hypertension or the earliest identification of the atherosclerotic process. It may be used as a predictor of the development of this disorder in the remainder of the body’s arterial circulation, including the coronary arteries of the heart.

Carotid Ultrasound

This exam images the major arteries supplying blood to the brain and identifies at a highly sensitive location any development of plaque formation.

Sleep Disorder Evaluation & Treatment

A condition called obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, is particularly harmful to the heart. Controlling sleep apnea has priceless benefits, including improved blood pressure, improved diabetes control, more daytime energy, and the ability to shed excess pounds more easily. To confirm a diagnosis of sleep apnea, you’d normally need to spend the night in a sleep clinic. At Pritikin, overnight testing is easily set up in your hotel room. The test also indicates possible treatments, which may include CPAP Rx, a highly effective treatment for controlling sleep apnea.

Vascular A Testing

This is Pritikin’s most complete cardiovascular imaging package. It includes: carotid, abdominal aorta, lower arterial, cardiac echo, IMT. Using cutting edge digital ultrasound technology, imaging will begin with your heart and follow all the major arteries and vessels within your abdomen and lower extremities to provide you with a complete analysis of your cardiovascular health.

Vascular B Testing

This cardiovascular package examines all the major arteries within your body
in order to provide you with a complete analysis of your arterial system and its performance.

Vascular C Testing

This cardiovascular test uses the carotid artery to isolate and identify any plaque at all during a specific timeline of pathology. Pritikin includes an intimal medial thickness test with this specific package in order to identify your risk factors for coronary and cardiovascular disease using your specific physical profile and imaging.

Diagnostic Blood Testing

B12 Testing

If your Pritikin physician finds you to be deficient, B12 injections are available at your doctor’s request.

B12/ Folate Testing

C-Peptide

A C-peptide test is a dependable indicator of how much insulin your pancreas is producing. If you have low blood sugar, C-peptide testing can pinpoint the cause, such as excessive use of medicine to treat diabetes.

Cardiac IQ Comprehensive

Hemoglobin A1C Testing

Hemoglobin A1c shows what a person’s average blood glucose level was for the two to three months before the test. It can help determine how well a person’s diabetes is being controlled over time. It is also valuable in assessing the risk of diabetic eye, kidney, and nerve disease.

PT (INR) STAT

Vitamin D Testing

Vitamin D deficiency is strongly linked to bone loss and possibly other health concerns, including diabetes. With testing of blood levels of vitamin D, we will identify any deficiencies and, if needed, prescribe appropriate supplementation to help correct them.

And More

Your physical may suggest additional tests. Speak to your physician if  you'd like to explore any test not one this list.
