What is a Biometabolic Profile and Why Is It Done?

This comprehensive evaluation is done to help the diagnosis of some diseases or assess the risk factors of certain diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular conditions and metabolic syndrome. Some other reasons that a doctor might need a metabolic profile are as follows:

  • To identify abnormal levels or patterns to prevent metabolic disorders like diabetes, obesity or dyslipidemia. 
  • To monitor patients who have been diagnosed with metabolic diseases or disorders
  • To make an appropriate personalized management plan that would include changes in lifestyle, diet, exercise and medicines.
  • It is used as a health optimization tool to boost your overall health and wellness,
