Diagnostic Tests

Resting Metabolic Rate

A patients’ resting metabolic rate measures how many calories their body burns while at rest. Also known as RMR for short, can be a valuable metric in diagnosing conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, overactive thyroid, mitochondrial disorders, and COPD. Using a simple mask, patients will undergo testing to determine if their metabolism is fast or slow.

Sudomotor Scan

sudomotor scan can help diagnose the onset of peripheral neuropathy. Identifying the onset of this disease can prevent the disease from affecting major nerves in the body. First, our team will place small electrodes on the body. These electrodes will emit a small voltage. The voltage causes a reaction, this bodily reaction provided us with the measurements we need to identify neuropathy. The sudomotor scan is a quick and painless test performed in our office.


ANS Monitoring

ANS monitoring stands for non-invasive autonomic nervous system monitoring. This diagnostic test is a fast, pain-free, and simple measure of health. In under 20 minutes, our team can determine how their nervous system is controlling their heart, lungs, and other body parts. Patients that have diabetes, hypertension, anxiety, or are pregnant often undergo monitoring.

Thyroid Ultrasound

thyroid ultrasound is the most accurate and useful imaging test to detect nodules or lumps within the thyroid gland. For patients with a thyroid condition, an ultrasound can provide insight into any changes within the thyroid gland or if there are benign and malignant nodules in the neck.


Body Composition

Body composition is the percentage of fat, protein, minerals, and body water within the human body. At Park Avenue Endocrinology, we choose to use the body composition tool rather than BMI as it is more accurate to each patient’s individual body type. The test takes just a few minutes and can provide our team with a host of measurements for each patient.
