InBody Body Composition Analysis

During the initial comprehensive nutrition assessment, you have the option to do an InBody scan to determine personal body composition. This personalized report shows body fat percentage, lean muscle mass, and visceral fat level. Tracking InBody data can be a great motivator to achieve health goals and is a much better indicator of health than weight or BMI.

Our Registered Dietician commonly sees patients for:

Gastrointestinal disorders (IBD, IBS, SIBO, EOE, etc.)
Food sensitivities and allergies
Weight loss
Athletic performance optimization
Eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, unhealthy relationships with food)

The Role of a Registered Dietitian

Expert Guidance

A Registered Dietitian is a licensed and trained professional with expertise in nutrition. She can provide personalized guidance based on an individual’s unique health profile, dietary preferences, and lifestyle.

Tailored Meal Plans

Working closely with a Registered Dietitian allows for the creation of customized meal plans that meet specific nutritional needs while aligning with weight management goals. These plans are realistic, sustainable, and enjoyable.

Integrating MRT Testing with Dietitian Expertise

At Spruce MD in Greenville, SC, our licensed and registered dietitians deliver comprehensive nutrition plans personalized to each of our client’s health needs, preferences, and lifestyle goals. We use a functional nutrition approach, blending whole foods and supplements, plus thorough assessments, including InBody scans for body composition. We then collaborate with our clients to develop meal plans that are practical, sustainable, and customized to meet specific nutritional and weight management goals. Additionally, by identifying and managing food sensitivities through Mediator Release Testing (MRT), we craft tailored meal plans and elimination diets, significantly enhancing health and wellness. This holistic approach ensures that our nutritional strategies are both effective and sustainable, addressing specific dietary needs and weight management challenges. Contact one of our Greenville nutritionists today to learn more about corporate nutrition and MRT testing for your business.

Personalized Elimination Diets

With the information from MRT testing, a Registered Dietitian can create personalized elimination diets, removing foods that provoke inflammatory responses. This step is crucial for reducing inflammation, optimizing digestion, and promoting weight loss.

Reintroduction and Maintenance

A Registered Dietitian guides individuals through the systematic reintroduction of eliminated foods, helping to identify tolerances and preferences. This phase is essential for creating a sustainable, long-term eating plan that supports both health and weight management.

What is MRT Testing?

Mediator Release Testing (MRT) is a blood test that identifies individual food and chemical sensitivities by measuring changes in white blood cell volume. This testing method provides insights into how the body reacts to different substances.

Identifying Trigger Foods

MRT testing helps pinpoint foods and substances that may be triggering inflammatory responses in the body. By identifying and eliminating these triggers, individuals can address underlying issues that may be hindering weight management.
