Women's Health Center Options

Daisy • Lily Orchid Total Body Composition Analysis for Women Appointments

If you're like most women, you schedule your physical approximately every three years, have a mammogram annually, try to remember to schedule your pap test and maybe have your cholesterol checked occasionally. Unless you've attended a women's health fair, you probably haven't had a bone density test, and you may never had a thyroid screening.

We understand that these tests and exams take time - time that most of us don't have. Empowering women to take control of their health, the specialists at the Women's Health Center have created several women's health options, designed to be comprehensive, convenient and female-friendly.

By choosing one of the options, all the scheduling is done at at once at the same place, on the same day. There's no need to make multiple calls to multiple departments. The screenings and exams are performed on the same day at the Clinic's main campus, so there's no need to make several trips downtown.

In addition to providing you with fast, accurate test results, our Women's Health Center specialists can target, reduce and help you eliminate health risks; identify potential women's health issues; and share vital wellness information with you. Finally, if additional testing, consultation or treatment is needed, you have immediate access to Cleveland Clinic specialists.

Total Body Composition Analysis for Women*
We are now offering a new, innovative, exact, non-invasive and quick way to know your exact percent of total body fat vs lean body mass at the Women's Health Center at the Gault Women's Health and Breast Pavilion at the Cleveland Clinic Main Campus.

For non-pregnant women** who want to know what their exact body composition is, this can be determined with Dual-Energy Total Body Scanning-the same technology that determines bone mineral density.

For most women, knowing your height and weight and calculated BMI (with the normal BMI range being 19-24.5) is sufficient. An overweight BMI is over 27 and an obese BMI is over 30 and an underweight BMI is under 18.

However, for some women-such as competitive athletes, women with treated eating disorders who are not menstruating, women on a training program to lose weight and improve muscle mass may want to quantify and follow their body composition. In addition, some very muscular persons, who are not overweight have artificially raised BMI. In these situations, a total body composition/body fat analysis may be very informative.

In general, a woman needs at least 20% body fat to maintain a healthy state and normal menstrual function. However, a body fat of over 33-36% is associated with increasing health risks. It is not necessarily how much you weigh - it's how much of your weight is body fat. Excess body fat has been linked to many serious health issues such as heart disease, high cholesterol, diabetes, and the "metabolic syndrome." Learning your percentage of body fat and reducing it with healthy eating and regular exercise can lower your risks for heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, osteoarthritis, and some cancers to name just a few. Conversely, having too little body fat has also associated with medical problems such as menstrual disorders, thin bones, stress fractures, and infertility .... Come make an appointment at A10 by calling 216/444-4HER.

The cost is approximately $249 for the scan and the analysis.

*This body composition analysis is NOT covered by insurance.
**Women with breast or buttock implants and/or weigh more than 270 pounds are not candidates for total body composition.
