Why Do I Need Labwork?

Why Do I Need Labs?

 

Here at Imagine Medispa, our ultimate goal is improving your overall health while you are learning how to lose and maintain your weight.  Regular lab work is necessary to find out how your body is functioning. The labs we require evaluate the following:

Thyroid function

Blood sugar

Cholesterol

Kidney and Liver function

Anemia

This information provides us with the clinical picture we need to better treat you as an individual.  For example, if your thyroid is not functioning properly, it can make it very difficult to lose weight.  Depending upon the results of this test, you may need to seek treatment from your doctor to prescribe medication that will get your thyroid to function properly. Also, if your labs find that you are diabetic or pre-diabetic then our providers take into account your current clinical condition in putting together a plan specifically to fit YOUR needs and goals. Again, this may require a visit to your family doctor to re-adjust or start medication to help control this disease.  These labs many times uncover information that identifies current risk factors in your personal health status.

 

In short, we do not want to harm you and we don’t want you to waste your time and money by having an underlying condition which could render any of the medications we prescribe useless—all of which could occur without running lab work on patients.

Lastly, if you have had drawn in the past 12 months the above-mentioned lab work, we can use that in lieu of having it done.

 

We hope this information was helpful. If you have more questions, check out our Frequently Asked Questions Page
