Which labs are needed before my first appointment?
Prior to your Calibrate doctor visit, our Medical Team requires you to complete lab work to better inform your medical care.
The lab requirements are as follows:
Within 3 months prior to your doctor visit:
- Comprehensive Metabolic Panel
Within 6 months prior to your doctor visit:
- Hemoglobin A1c
- Lipid Panel
- Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
In addition, we recommend a fasting insulin test and a C-Reactive Protein (CRP) test (also within 6 months prior to your doctor visit), but this isn’t required. If Calibrate generates the lab order, the required labs as well as a fasting insulin test and a C-Reactive Protein (CRP) test will automatically be included in your lab request.
If you plan to upload your own labs, be sure they meet the full list of requirements above. If you are missing any required labs from this list, you will need to visit a lab to have them drawn before you can schedule your appointment with a Calibrate doctor. Please do not visit a lab without getting a lab order from Calibrate. You can request a new lab order by messaging us via the Support Center in your Calibrate app. To ensure proper medical identification, please make sure your labs contain your full name and date of birth. Also, make sure the date of collection is on the pages of your results so we can validate when you got the labs done. Our Medical Team prescribes medication based on up-to-date health information to protect your health and safety.
