The DEXA (duel-energy X-ray absorptiometry) is a scan that you can have in the comfort of our private clinic. DEXA provides one of the most highly accurate measurements of body composition available, registering fat and lean mass distribution throughout the entire body. It is the gold standard for detailing overall, as well as regional, fat mass, lean mass, and bone mass.
DEXA scans for body composition
If you are interested in your health and wellness for the short term and the long term, or if you are considering or in the process of changing your diet, exercise or lifestyle to achieve this and want to know the truth about what you are made of, then DEXA can provide these answers.
DEXA scans will provide a report detailing accurate measurements of your body including your body fat percentage, your FMI, and your Android/Gynoid ratio and BMR. Forget unreliable bathroom scales, electrical impedance or subjective calliper measurements and other scans. As the gold standard measure DEXA will give you your overall body fat percentage and your FMI Fat Mass Index and numerous other statistics about your health and wellness.
DEXA scans can also clearly reveal how much and where the body fat is located, which is especially useful when it comes to what is called visceral fat. Unlike subcutaneous fat which tends to collect on the thighs, bottom and arms, (think 'pear') visceral fat is stored in the abdominal cavity and locates itself around organs such as the pancreas, liver and intestines, (think 'apple'). Unlike subcutaneous fat, in some people it can be hard to see externally, so you may not know it is there.
Carrying a high amount of visceral fat is associated with impaired health. Excess visceral fat is dangerous as it can lead to glucose intolerance and type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular issues and chronic systemic inflammation. It can also increase the risk of heart disease, breast cancer, colorectal cancer and Alzheimer's. In your DEXA full body composition scan report, you will be able to see the fat distribution in your body. DEXA will also give you your individual android/gynoid fat ratio. Your android/gynoid ratio is highly correlated to certain health risk factors and a good predictor of insulin resistance, metabolic and cardiovascular diseases. The information in your DEXA report will empower you to take the necessary steps to avoid life limiting diseases.
DEXA Scans for Bone Density
A DEXA scan will calculate your bone mineral content and density. This measurement of bone mineral density will be compared to other people who are the same age and sex, giving a good indication as to whether you are at risk of developing conditions such as osteopenia and osteoporosis. A total body composition scan will indicate your 'T' Score but our separate specific Bone Density scan and FRAX assessment will give those at risk of osteopenia or osteoporosis a report on risk of future fractures.
Who benefits from monitoring their bone health?
Many people over a certain age will benefit from knowing more about their bone health. Below are some additional reasons for paying attention to changes in bone health.
Anyone who has used corticosteroids.
Men or women who have had a restricted diet or malabsorption in the gut, or very underweight.
People with family who have suffered fractures or have been diagnosed with osteopenia or osteoporosis.
People who have consumed excessive amounts of fizzy carbonated drinks or alcohol.
People who are Smokers.
People who lead a sedentary lifestyle.
People with certain conditions such as diabetes or taking certain prescribed medications.
Pre, peri or menopausal women can have a DEXA and feel informed as to where they are in relation to their bone health. An initial DEXA scan can provide a bone density score and excellent baseline. A repeat scan will reveal a trend or change in bone density which is very useful for those experiencing a fluctuation in hormonal changes over a period of time. You will be able to see if your bone density is improving, getting worse or staying the same. Identifying concerns related to loss of bone mass, implementing changes and getting interventions in a timely manner can help minimise health risks. We can provide additional services to help reduce the risk of fragility fractures as part of our falls assessment, exercise plan and physiotherapy services. A healthy balanced diet, weight bearing exercise, lifting weights and exercises to improve balance will help reduce the risk of falling and help maintain healthy bones.
