Objective methods of obesity patients.

After all, you already know that it is extremely important that during the period of weight loss in the body, the amount of fat and excess fluid content, rather than muscle mass, decrease.
Age, height, weight, waist and hips of a person are recorded in a computer with a special program. Then electrodes are connected to the arm and leg of the lying person. According to the measured electrical resistance, bioimpedance, various body components (fat content, lean mass, muscle tissue, fluid) are quantitatively evaluated, waist-to-hip ratio, body mass index is determined. According to these data, the doctor develops an individual program for correcting body weight.
A great advantage of the analyzer is the indirect detection of a possible lack of nutrients in the body, which prevents the achievement of a successful treatment result. This device has the only drawback - it gives reliable data only when used in a specially prepared room and has quite a few errors.
Objective control of indicators of the composition of body tissues is laid in the basis of my method of recovery and correction of excess weight. If necessary, based on these indicators, I as precisely as possible calculate the nutrients required for the patient: proteins, fats, carbohydrates, ballast substances. I build graphs of body composition indices throughout the course of correction of excess fat mass and proportions of the figure. Measures without objective control of these relationships, for example, based only on weighing results, can lead, and most often lead, to a sharp decrease in active muscle mass.
Bio-impedance analysis is available, easy to use and absolutely safe. It makes it possible to control the process of changing the tissue balance at any time, and although this method of examination has become very popular among dietitian doctors, few of them know that these measurements are of great importance precisely at the first treatment of the patient. For continuous monitoring, it is ineffective, especially when analyzing data not by an experienced physician.
This is due, at least, to the fact that in the first few weeks of a low-calorie diet the cholesterol levels in the blood drop, and it, as is known, binds the water. In this case, a large amount of fluid is released from the urine, and the decrease in body weight as a whole is greater than the total decrease in fat mass and without fatty tissues. In addition, when the water balance changes, the electrical resistance of tissues also changes, which distorts the real results. The dynamics of bioelectrical impedance shows a false "increase" in the body fat content, while in fact it decreases. When assessing the mass of non-fatty tissues, the content of both muscle tissue and water is taken into account. Reducing the water content leads to an apparent sharp decrease in the mass of non-fatty tissues; because of this there is a false appearance of an increase in the percentage of fat in the body.
Therefore, I always consider the changes in the level of cholesterol in the patient's blood when analyzing the results of the bioimpedance method of investigation in a hospital setting. By introducing an amendment to the bioelectrical impedance dynamics program for changes in blood cholesterol level, we can obtain the most reliable result.
Many patients and doctors overestimate the accuracy of the results of this survey and sometimes face paradoxical indicators that can not explain to themselves, nor, especially, to their patient. In addition, when measuring bioelectrical impedance, small changes in the fat content can not be detected at all, and this should be emphasized in a conversation with a patient.
For dieticians and other health care professionals, it is important to understand the relative importance of the analysis of the composition of the body composition and the importance of individual diet selection, taking into account the mass of the patient's muscle tissue and its protein requirement. In the calculations it is necessary to take into account the analysis of the dynamics of the quantitative indices of blood cholesterol. This makes it possible to obtain more reliable numerical values.
In addition, studies have shown that patients' awareness of such factors as a drop in the initial figures of blood cholesterol or blood pressure level significantly affects the effectiveness of changing their lifestyle and belief in the successful outcome of treatment. Increase the motivation. It is also recommended to constantly remind the patient of the optimal body weight for him.

Objective methods of obesity patients.

  1. OBJECTIVE SURVEY OF THE PATIENT
    Quincke's edema is manifested by rapid strong swelling of any part of the body (tissue): the face is more often affected, more rarely - limbs, even less often - the rest of the body. Edema is accompanied by a pronounced defoguration, itching or pain. Spontaneously pass for several hours. When spreading to the oropharynx or airways can lead to the death of the patient. Allergic rhinitis (hay fever) is manifested

  4. Methods and methods of examination of patients with skin and venereal diseases
    For the successful treatment of a patient, a correctly diagnosed disease is necessary. However, the diagnosis of the disease is the most difficult process. An important role in the diagnosis is played by experience, the ability to conduct differential diagnosis, use methods and diagnostic techniques that help to establish the correct diagnosis. We present some of the most common and

  7. OBJECTIVE SURVEY OF THE CHILD
    Objective examination of the child begins with an assessment of the general condition. Distinguish the following conditions: -atisfactory; -the average weight; -heavy; Extremely heavy. Assessment of the condition begins with the child's appearance before the doctor and ends after a complete clinical examination of all systems. Parallel assessment of the child's position: active, passive, forced. Limitation
  8. Objective examination
    After getting acquainted with the anamnesis, the patients proceed to an objective examination, which begins with an examination. Examination of the pregnant woman. Inspection often allows you to get very valuable data for the diagnosis. When examined, pay attention to the growth of the pregnant, physique, fatness, skin condition, visible mucous membranes, mammary glands, the size and shape of the abdomen. Growth. Growth of a pregnant woman
  9. Objective examination
    A clinical anamnesis does not always clearly indicate the cause of abdominal pain. A preliminary examination and differential diagnosis is necessary. Violations of a general nature can clarify the cause of the pain. Tachycardia, fever and shortness of breath suggest sepsis due to peritonitis, cholangitis, pyelonephritis, or severe bacterial enteritis.
  10. Data of anamnesis and objective examination
    When the patient first contacts the doctor about the alleged pregnancy for a correct diagnosis, a multifaceted examination should be carried out, including a history, objective examination, instrumental and laboratory tests. In the process of collecting anamnesis, first of all, it is necessary to pay attention to the circumstances that may serve as risk factors
