Patients who have Type-2 diabetes may be eligible for insurance coverage on their GLP-1 medication.

At present, we provide services in the states of New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Do you prescribe compounded medicines?

Yes, we do prescribe compounded Semaglutide and Tirzepatide#. 

Is medication included in the plan?

The cost of medication is not included in the Renew You weight loss program. We offer other non-prescription medicine options also for rapid weight loss. Once you become a member, you have access to all options to choose from. When you opt for the prescription medication option, you’ll gain access to GLP-1 medications such as Wegovy® or Ozempic®. Additionally, our program provides you with insurance coverage support. The cost of compounded Semaglutide is $299/month (4-week supply) and compounded Tirzepatide is $399/month (4-week supply). 

How do you assess my health risk?

Our physician health coach, Dr. Gupta, performs comprehensive medical assessment (past medical history, current medications, eating habits, physical activity pattern, review blood work) and metabolic assessment (measuring muscle, fat, and water) to calculate your health risk. Then, he offers personalized solutions.

Should I be concern if I am overweight or obese?

Yes, you should. About 70 percent of Americans aged 20 and above are overweight or obese.  Unfortunately, the problem has become much more common in children, too.  Excess body weight and obesity have been associated with increased risks of developing other medical conditions such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Sleep apnea
  • Liver and gallbladder disease
  • Some types of cancer, breast, prostate, and colon
  • Arthritis
  • Gynecological problems
  • Physical disability
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Breathing problems
  • Depression, and
  • Some cancer

Research has shown that even a 5 to 10 percent loss of the initial body weight can greatly reduce health risks and improve general well being.

It is easier to lose weight than you may think!

How do I know if my weight normal?

One simple way is to know your BMI. If you BMI is between 25-29.9, you are overweight and if it is between 30-39.9, you are considered obese, and if it is above 40, it is considered severe obesity. 

More importantly, we need to assess what is muscle to fat ratio is in our body (Percentage of fat in body).

Both person have same weight and BMI but Percent Body Fat truly assess health risk and correlates well to losing inches. 

#A note about compounding.
We’ve heard the concerns about improper compounding and want to put your mind at ease. Per the Obesity Medicine Association statement “….compounding pharmacies are regulated by State Boards of Pharmacy and expected to comply with Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) requirements and may receive compounding accreditation… clinician’s should verify safeguards such that the source anti-obesity medications and their formulations have undergone adequate clinical trial testing for efficacy and safety.” At ValleyForgeWMC, our compounding pharmacies are put through a rigorous process to verify all pharmacy safety data and efficacy data and to ensure they are in good standing with their State’s Board of Pharmacy and the FDA.
