How MetforminRx works

Metformin has been prescribed to patients for over 60 years. Studies have shown that it safely and effectively lowers blood glucose.

Studies suggest that lowering blood glucose by taking Metformin can reduce inflammation in the body.

Metformin allows your cells to take in and use sugar more effectively, reducing the amount of sugar in your blood.

Metformin may help with weight management for people living with diabetes.

Great Experience

As a retired gastroenterologist, I have worked with the expert team for the past several weeks and made significant headway in combating diabetes, hyperlipemia, and metabolic syndrome. The availability of talent and convenience of telemedicine are outstanding features of 9amHealth. I am excited about working together with my team.

Lost 13 pounds in only a few months

A breath of fresh air

After relocating across the country to a state with many healthcare challenges, I found it difficult to manage the multiple conditions I have. I waited for appointments on long waiting lists. As a black woman, to be listened to, supported, and cared for is so very rare in healthcare.

A holistic approach to weight loss

I recently completed a six-month weight loss journey with 9am, and I am thrilled with the results. The comprehensive program, combined with the expert guidance of my consultant, Christian, helped me achieve my goals and transform my lifestyle.
The 9am program is well integrated. They offer practical strategies and resources to help make sustainable lifestyle changes. The team's support and the wealth of information provided were key to my success. 
I highly recommend 9am to anyone looking to achieve lasting health and wellness.

9amHealth is AMAZING!

Dealing with 9amHealth has been the best experience in the healthcare field that I've ever had in my life. The staff is fantastic! They bent over backward to accommodate my requests and got me what I needed amazingly fast. I can't recommend them enough. Wish I could give them 10 stars!

Ray McDaniel, 9amHealth member
Very affordable

When diagnosed with diabetes I was freaking out. I came across 9amHealth and they are amazing! They are always there no matter what time. I totally enjoy the fact I can do everything from home. Best part is they are affordable!

Jamison Taylor, 9amHealth member
My experience with 9amHealth has been awesome

As a truck driver, it's difficult to make doctor's appointments. 9amHealth simplified the whole process of getting my medication when my doctor wouldn't fill the prescription unless I came to the office. And all he does is ask the same questions and write the prescription, which I then have to wait for at the pharmacy to receive. 9am health ships it right to your door. I will continue to use them from now on. Thank you so much!

Elder Timothy Haggerty, 9amHealth member
Great service!

I work in the healthcare profession, I am very reluctant to go to a physician, because it’s so hard to get an appointment! Got my lab work done within a week and had medications that I probably should’ve been on for the last 10 years. So convenient I really wish this had been available a long time ago.

Annette Hendricks, 9amHealth member
What a time saver

9amHealth was easy to deal with and sent out my meds very promptly. The 3 month-supply is a time saver compared to picking up a one-month supply at my local pharmacy and dealing with frequent refill requests through my doctor's office.

David Sweedler, 9amHealth member
I love the program

I love the program and how it makes me accountable for my actions, knowing that I will hear from the 9amHealth Care Team. Thank you for learning new tools so I can do better and make better choices.

9amHealth is a blessing

9amHealth has been a blessing to me because of my work hours and the difficulty of seeing a doctor.

Support, empathy, and understanding

It’s like having patient advocates and a whole medical team at your fingertips 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I have been met with nothing but support, empathy, and understanding. I look forward to seeing weight loss results and telling my medical team about them. 

Jason, 9amHealth member
Did not miss a day of work

I give 9amHealth 5 stars. I came across their web page looking for non-expensive health insurance, and I do not regret one bit applying for their services; they got me on schedule the same week to get my labs done, and they came to my job, for which I did not have to miss a day off work. I totally recommend them and will recommend them to friends and family. My life saver!

Gloria Lopez, 9amHealth member
Saves so much time!

I recommend using them if you don't like sitting at the doctor's office for hours waiting to get checked on and have a 5-minute face time with your doctor and get the prescription, then another hour of waiting to get the prescription filled.

Mike H., 9amHealth member
Great Experience

Using 9amHealth has been a fantastic experience! Their response times are fast, and they collaborate closely with you to identify the optimal dosage. Additionally, they ensure timely shipments. I would definitely recommend them!

Lawrence Ng, 9amHealth member
Great Diabetes Care

When I started the program, I was completely out of medication, and it was very difficult to manage my diabetes. I couldn’t get an appointment with anyone in the area. With 9amHealth’s help, I could lower my blood sugar through simple exercises. This really helped me during the holidays. I could get my A1c tested, and it was so easy. It was good to talk to a real person and not a chatbot. I recently started reading the articles on what to eat for breakfast, which were very helpful.
