Blood work while on rapamycin

Is anyone having blood work drawn while on rapamycin and, if so, is it being ordered through Healthspan, is there a prescription for it, how much does it cost to have the labwork done, and what information should we be tracking?

Hey there! I have been reading that the standard blood, glucose, and lipid panels are helpful. Rapamycin can increase lipid levels so it’s good to check. I ordered a blood kit off Life Extension and will be taking to Quest Diagnostics. We’ll see how it goes! I believe Healthspan also has test panels but I haven’t gotten much info after it was suggested to me when I first started Rapamycin and had some gastro issues. Hope this helps!

Hi Leslie, can you email your lab results to so our medical team can review your results?

Hi Greg, can you message Jeff in the patient portal, and we can send out a requisition to get your bloodwork done?

Sure thing! I’m getting my blood drawn this Saturday.
