HOW IT WORKS

Initial Virtual Consultation fee is $100 (if self-pay), then you will select one lab and one weight loss medication option below. These are significantly discounted. If using insurance, you will be responsible for copay/coinsurance. If you have done labs in the last three months, we will accept the results. Monthly follow-up visit for medication refill is $75. During the initial consultation, you and the provider will discuss the options to help determine the most appropriate for you.

LAB OPTIONS

The prices listed are for self-pay. If using insurance, the pricing will depend on your plan. Labs are done at the beginning and at  3 months. Labs may be drawn 1-2 weeks before the appointment or after the initial appointment. Labs will be drawn at a lab location close to you.  See lab descriptions below.

Lab Descriptions

A common blood test that provides important information about the components of your blood. It measures the levels of various blood cells, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. A CBC can help diagnose a wide range of conditions, including infections, anemia, immune system and blood disorders. It provides valuable insights into overall health and can help healthcare providers make informed decisions about diagnosis and treatment.
A blood test that measures various substances in your blood to provide information about the function of your kidneys, liver, and other vital organs. It typically includes tests for glucose, electrolytes, kidney function (such as creatinine and blood urea nitrogen), liver function (such as liver enzymes and bilirubin), and proteins. The CMP is often used as part of a routine health checkup, to monitor certain health conditions, or to evaluate symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, or abdominal pain.
A blood test that evaluates the function of the thyroid gland by measuring levels of thyroid hormones and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). It typically includes tests for TSH, free thyroxine (T4), and triiodothyronine (T3). These hormones play a crucial role in regulating metabolism, energy levels, and many other bodily functions. A thyroid panel is used to diagnose thyroid disorders such as hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) and hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid), as well as to monitor thyroid function during treatment.
A blood test that measures various types of fats (lipids) and cholesterol in the bloodstream. It typically includes tests for total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and triglycerides. These lipid levels are important indicators of cardiovascular health, as high levels of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, and low levels of HDL cholesterol, are associated with an increased risk of heart disease and stroke. A lipid panel is often used to assess cardiovascular risk, guide treatment decisions, and monitor the effectiveness of lifestyle changes and medications aimed at improving lipid levels.
Also known as A1c test or glycated hemoglobin test, measures the average blood sugar level over the past 2-3 months. It provides information about long-term blood sugar control and is used primarily to diagnose and monitor diabetes. The A1C test reflects the percentage of hemoglobin that is glycated (bound to glucose) in the blood. Higher A1C levels indicate poorer blood sugar control and an increased risk of diabetes-related complications.
A blood test that measures the level of insulin in the bloodstream after an overnight fast. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that helps regulate blood sugar levels by facilitating the uptake of glucose into cells for energy. This test is typically used to assess insulin resistance, a condition in which the body’s cells become less responsive to insulin, leading to higher blood sugar levels. The fasting insulin test can help diagnose insulin resistance, monitor treatment effectiveness in individuals with diabetes or metabolic syndrome, and assess the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
A test that measures the level of total 25-hydroxyvitamin D in the blood. This form of vitamin D is the main circulating form in the body and is used to assess overall vitamin D status. Vitamin D plays a crucial role in bone health, immune function, and many other physiological processes. The test helps healthcare providers diagnose vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency, monitor response to treatment with vitamin D supplements, and assess the risk of developing conditions related to vitamin D deficiency, such as osteoporosis or rickets. Research suggests that there may be a relationship between vitamin D levels and weight, although the exact nature of this relationship is complex and not fully understood. Some studies have found an association between lower vitamin D levels and increased body weight or obesity, while others have found no significant association.
A test that measures the level of vitamin B12 in the blood. Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is essential for the formation of red blood cells, neurological function, and DNA synthesis. The test is typically used to diagnose vitamin B12 deficiency, which can lead to anemia, neurological symptoms, and other health problems. It is also used to monitor treatment for vitamin B12 deficiency and to investigate the cause of certain symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, numbness, or tingling in the extremities. Some research has suggested potential associations between vitamin B12 status and factors that may influence weight, such as metabolism, energy levels, and nutrient absorption. For example, vitamin B12 is involved in the metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates, and deficiencies may affect energy production and utilization, potentially impacting weight management.
A blood test that measures the level of prolactin, a hormone produced by the pituitary gland, in the blood. Prolactin is primarily known for its role in lactation and reproductive health, particularly in women. However, research suggests that prolactin may also influence metabolism, appetite, and weight regulation through its effects on various physiological processes. Elevated prolactin levels, known as hyperprolactinemia, have been associated with certain metabolic disturbances and weight changes in some individuals. For example, conditions such as prolactinoma (a benign pituitary tumor that produces excess prolactin) or hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) may lead to hyperprolactinemia and potential weight gain. Additionally, certain medications that affect prolactin levels may also impact weight.
A blood test that measures the level of IGF-1, a hormone produced by the liver in response to growth hormone (GH) stimulation, in the blood. Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) is a hormone that plays a crucial role in growth, development, and metabolism. While IGF-1 is primarily known for its role in promoting tissue growth, it also influences various metabolic processes, including glucose metabolism, lipid metabolism, and energy balance. Some research suggests that higher levels of IGF-1 may be associated with increased muscle mass and reduced body fat, leading to potential changes in body composition and weight. However, the relationship between IGF-1 levels and weight regulation is influenced by various factors, including age, gender, genetics, diet, physical activity, and overall health status. It’s important to note that while higher levels of IGF-1 may have beneficial effects on muscle growth and metabolism, excessively high levels of IGF-1 (such as in acromegaly) can lead to metabolic abnormalities and other health problems.
A blood test that measures the level of CRP, a protein produced by the liver in response to inflammation, in the bloodstream. The CRP is a marker of inflammation, and elevated levels of CRP in the bloodstream can indicate the presence of inflammation in the body. Inflammation is a normal physiological response to injury or infection, but chronic low-grade inflammation has been associated with various health conditions, including obesity. Obesity is characterized by excess body fat, which can lead to chronic inflammation in adipose tissue and throughout the body. Studies have shown that individuals with obesity often have higher levels of CRP compared to those with a healthy weight. However, it’s important to note that CRP levels can be influenced by many factors other than weight, including age, gender, genetics, diet, physical activity, and overall health status.
