How do I receive a metabolic syndrome diagnosis? Will there be labs and tests?

To provide the personalized care needed to get you the health and longevity results you want, we need to know as much as possible about you, your health, and your goals before your visit. All patients are asked to complete a detailed Healthspan questionnaire – and are asked to share any relevant testing results and medical records. 

After the initial consultation, Dr. Hurst may suggest other testing to help fully understand the best opportunities to achieve your health and longevity goals. If we’re concerned about metabolic disorders, symptoms will be taken into account when we recommend these tests.
