Weight Management Tracking Test

$ 89.0

Track key health measures during your weight loss journey.

Are you taking steps to manage your weight, through medication (such as glucagon-like peptide-1, or  GLP-1 medication) or lifestyle changes? Labcorp OnDemand’s Weight Management Tracking test can help you monitor your progress throughout your weight management journey. 

The blood test gives you key information on how your body is responding to weight loss by measuring your HbA1c (hemoglobin A1c), or average blood sugar level over the past 2-3 months, along with your cholesterol and lipid levels. 

The results help you and your healthcare provider see how your weight management program is impacting your health. You can use the information to make any needed adjustments in your medication, diet or activity.

What's Tested
  • Total Cholesterol

    A measure of the total sum of cholesterol (LDL, HDL, and VLDL) in the body.

  • LDL (low-density lipoprotein) Cholesterol

    Measures the amount of LDL in the blood, known as the “bad” cholesterol because LDL particles can build up in the walls of your arteries, which increases the risk of heart attack and stroke.

  • VLDL (very low-density lipoprotein) Cholesterol

    Measures the amount of VLDL in blood, the cholesterol from particles that carry triglycerides in the body that are then converted to LDL. Elevated VLDL levels can increase your risk of heart disease.

  • HDL (high-density lipoprotein) Cholesterol

    Measures the amount of HDL in the blood, known as "good" cholesterol because it comes from particles that remove "bad "cholesterol from the body, which reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke.

  • Triglycerides

    Measures the number of triglycerides in the blood, a type of fat that circulates in your blood and comes from adipose, the primary fat stored from food used to supply your energy. High triglyceride levels can increase the risk of heart disease.


  • Hemoglobin A1c

    Measures the average amount of glucose in your blood over an extended period (typically 8-12 weeks).

  • LDL/HDL Ratio

    A higher LDL/HDL ratio may indicate a higher heart disease risk. Blood cholesterol consists of two main types: LDL (bad) and HDL (good). High levels of total cholesterol can result from high levels of LDL and/or HDL.

  • Labcorp OnDemand's Weight Management Tracking Test looks at two key metabolic health tests: 
    • Diabetes Risk (HbA1c) - Provides current HbA1c level to estimate blood sugar levels over the past 2-3 months
    • Cholesterol and Lipid Panel – Checks total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides
  • Changes in your HbA1c and cholesterol levels can usually be seen within a few months after starting a treatment plan. Monitoring regularly helps you see how weight loss is impacting your metabolic health, including blood sugar and cholesterol. It is important to consult your provider about your result throughout your weight management journey. 

  • Your testing will be performed in a CLIA-certified clinical laboratory. Labcorp provides leading-edge medical laboratory tests and services through a national network of primary clinical laboratories and specialty testing laboratories. Our labs perform regular quality assurance testing to ensure our results are accurate. 

  • Your results will be provided to you through our secure online portal to view or print. Results are also provided to PWNHealth, which provides professional healthcare provider services for OnDemand tests. If you are accessing your results through your Labcorp Patient account, all users linked to the account will have access to all OnDemand test results. Results may also be provided to a local, state, or federal health authority, but only when legally required. For example, many states require the testing laboratory and healthcare provider to report test results for certain communicable diseases, such as sexually transmitted diseases or COVID-19, to local or state health departments.
