Last month I visited my primary care physician for an annual physical that included fasting blood work. I have never had any serious medical conditions. My blood pressure and blood work have always been good and most times very good. Imagine my surprise when the medical assistant called with test results and said my LDL cholesterol was too high at 150. I never expected any bad reports. She went on to say, “the doctor wants you to treat it with diet and exercise and she’ll see you in six months.” I thanked her and hung up. I didn’t ask any questions. I had questions. The doctor wants me to lower cholesterol with diet and exercise. What diet? What exercise? I partnered with Amwell to bring you this sponsored conversation about my honest experience with a the online Amwell services.
This was the perfect time for me to learn about the option of interviewing an Amwell nutritionist. Amwell is the largest online telehealth provider. You can meet with a board-certified, licensed doctor or psychologist and even have access to trained and certified nutritionists through an internet connection or a simple phone call. The service providers are available for “online” office hours day or night! Amwell doctors often handle minor illnesses and injuries, prescription refills, and chronic condition management. This is perfect for college kids who wait until the on campus health center closes to come down with an illness. What a relief for moms everywhere! It’s great to have Amwell as an invaluable resource on mobile or desktop. Amwell can meet your most of your healthcare needs while helping you save time and money.
