After booking an appointment with a mobile IV therapy provider, a healthcare professional will come to your location with all necessary equipment and supplies. After consultation with a provider, they will then administer the IV infusion and monitor you throughout the process.

 

Mobile IV therapy providers typically offer a range of IV infusions for various purposes including hydration, energy, immune support, and nutrient supplementation. Some examples include Our Exclusive Meyers, Exclusive Relief, and Exclusive Immunity.

 

When administered by a trained healthcare professional, mobile IV therapy is generally safe. However, as with any medical procedure, there is always some level of risk involved.

 

Mobile IV therapy is typically not covered by insurance. However, some providers may accept health savings accounts (HSAs) or flexible spending accounts (FSAs) as payment.

 

The cost of mobile IV therapy can vary depending on the type of infusion and the provider. Prices typically range from $170 to $300 per session. Some infusions can cost up to $500 but these are specialty infusions that requires more health care supervision.

Mobile IV therapy can benefit anyone who is in need of hydration or nutrient supplementation. It may be particularly helpful for athletes, people with nutrient deficiencies, those suffering from jet lag or acute illnesses, and individuals with hangovers. When recovering from an illness IV vitamins and fluids can help shorten illness duration and increase energy levels.

 

The length of a mobile IV therapy session can vary depending on the type of infusion and your individual needs. Sessions typically range from 30 minutes to 90 minutes.

 

The frequency of mobile IV therapy sessions will depend on your individual needs and the advice of your healthcare provider. Some people may benefit from regular sessions while others may only need occasional infusions.

While IV infusions can provide a source of hydration and nutrient supplementation, they should not be relied upon as a weight loss tool. Diet and exercise remain the most effective ways to achieve sustainable weight loss. If interested in further weight loss assistance please visit the weight loss section of our website.

 

Some people may experience mild side effects such as bruising, swelling, or discomfort at the infusion site. Rarely, more serious side effects such as infection or allergic reaction may occur.

 

When choosing a mobile IV therapy provider, it is important to look for a reputable company with trained healthcare professionals. Reading online reviews and asking for recommendations from friends or family members can also be helpful. We also background check all our nurses because patient safety is  top priority for us!

GLP-1 RAs are medications that have been approved for managing blood sugar levels in individuals diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. These medications work by mimicking the effects of GLP-1, a hormone that stimulates insulin secretion, slows digestion, and suppresses appetite. In addition to their blood sugar management benefits, GLP-1 RAs have become increasingly popular due to their ability to promote weight loss.

GLP-1 RAs are usually administered by injection under the skin. They can be self-administered using a pen device or a syringe, and are typically taken once a week

GLP-1 RAs have been shown to be effective in lowering blood sugar levels, reducing the risk of cardiovascular events, promoting weight loss, and improving overall glycemic control.

Common side effects of GLP-1 RAs include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, and headache. In rare cases, they can cause pancreatitis, kidney problems, or allergic reactions.

GLP-1 RAs are generally recommended for people with type 2 diabetes who have not achieved optimal blood sugar control with other medications. They may be particularly beneficial for people who are overweight or obese, as they can help with weight loss and improve insulin sensitivity. However, GLP-1 RAs are not recommended for people type 1 diabetes, w or those with a history of pancreatitis.

Contraindications for GLP-1 RAs are medical conditions or situations that make the use of these medications unsafe or not recommended. They include type 1 diabetes, personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, severe gastrointestinal disease, pancreatitis, and pregnancy/breastfeeding.

Setting achievable goals, tracking progress, and rewarding yourself along the way can help you stay motivated. Surrounding yourself with a supportive community or seeking the help of a professional, such as a registered dietitian or personal trainer, can also be helpful.

Virtual urgent care is a service that allows patients to receive medical consultation remotely via video conferencing or phone call with a nurse practitioner or PA. During the consultation, the healthcare provider will ask about the patient's symptoms, medical history, and medication usage, and may request the patient to take certain measurements like blood pressure, temperature, or heart rate. Following the consultation, the healthcare provider will diagnose the patient's condition and recommend a treatment plan, which may include prescribing medication, ordering further tests, or referring the patient to a specialist or an in-person healthcare facility.
