Medi-Weightloss is dedicated to improving the health of our patients through an individualized and medically supervised approach. The LEVL device’s personalized feedback helps patients understand how their metabolism responds to their wellness choices.
How does LEVL work?
Every time you exhale, your body expels acetone — a molecule found in the breath that indicates your personal state of fat burn at any given moment. A comfortable breath into the LEVL device gives you a snapshot of how your nutrition is affecting your fat burn or state of ketosis. The LEVL device eliminates the need for messy urine tests and the results give you a weekly fat loss prediction.
What to the LEVL results mean?
The LEVL device measures acetone in Parts Per Mission (PPM). The goal is to achieve and maintain a LEVL measurement of 2 PPM or higher which indicates elevated fat metabolism. This means your body is primarily burning fat for fuel instead of carbs and sugar.
How do I prepare for my LEVL measurement?
At least one hour prior to your appointment avoid the following items:
- Breath mints
- Chewing gum
- Cough drops
- Throat lozenges
- Tobacco or e-cigarettes
- Lip balm
- Mint or green tea
- Water enhancers (i.e. Mio)
- Fermented food and drinks (i.e. Kombucha)
These items may cause false high measurements, and, in some cases damage the device.
