IV Therapy  Running Springs, CA

IV Hydration

At Lloyd Costello, MD, we are pleased to offer IV therapies to our patients. We offer a wide range of treatments, from simple hydration to more customized therapies, including unique combinations of vitamins and minerals. We tailor each IV therapy session to the individual, depending on their needs and existing conditions.

The primary benefit of IV therapy is that it delivers the needed products directly to the bloodstream. Rather than waiting for nutrients to be absorbed through the digestive system, our patients can quickly receive them where the body will actually utilize them. Most therapies take between 15 and 30 minutes to administer, and we even have some patients come in on their lunch breaks!

Men’s Health

At Lloyd Costello, MD, we provide comprehensive men’s health services while making you feel at ease and comfortable with your body and any health concerns you may have.

What are the biggest concerns regarding men’s health?
As a group, men tend to avoid discussing their health or any concerns they have with anyone, including their doctors. However, putting off physical exams and preventive screens can allow underlying conditions to progress if left untreated. As men age, there are several common conditions that men are at higher risk of developing and they include:

  • Colon cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Liver disease
  • Low testosterone disorders
  • Prostate cancer
  • Stroke

Though some conditions increase risk with age, it is important to receive regular medical care regardless of how old you are.

Microbiome Support Gut Health services  Running Springs, CA

Microbiome Support (Gut Health)

The microbiome is a collective term for the trillions of bacteria, viruses, and fungi found throughout our bodies. While some of these are responsible for disease, many more are vital to the proper functionality of the brain, immune system, heart, weight, digestion, and more. A large portion of these exist in our intestines, specifically in a “pocket” in the large intestine called the cecum. This “pocket” is referred to as the gut microbiome and includes over 2,000 different species of bacteria alone.

Many are surprised to know that the human body is made up of approximately 40 trillion bacterial cells, but only 30 trillion human cells! These 40 trillion bacteria weigh as much as your brain (2-5 pounds) and essentially function as an extra organ of the body by aiding in numerous bodily functions. Your gut microbiome is an integral part of your health, and without it, it would be difficult to survive.

Natural Thyroid Management services  Running Springs, CA

Natural Thyroid Management

The thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of your neck below the cartilage known as Adam’s apple. As part of the endocrine system, the thyroid produces two main hormones: thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). These two hormones influence every single cell in your body. From how your body metabolizes fats and carbohydrates, to temperature regulation and heart rate, to the production of protein – thyroid hormones are center stage.

Two primary problems can occur with your thyroid – overproduction of thyroid hormones called hyperthyroidism, including Graves’ disease; and, underproduction of thyroid hormones called hypothyroidism, including Hashimoto’s disease. In most cases, thyroid problems can be well-managed when properly diagnosed and treated.

Physical Exams  Running Springs, CA

Physicals

At Lloyd Costello, MD, if you need a physical for any reason, we are here for you with our comprehensive exams for women, men, and children.

What are physicals?
Physicals are medical health assessments that you may need for a variety of reasons such as travel, work, school, or sports. They are important as they allow us to monitor your condition and wellbeing, but also identify any potential issues that may affect your health. Early detection allows us to begin treatment before the condition becomes more severe, giving a higher success rate of treatment.

You may need a physical before you go abroad or for work. Your child may need a physical for school, camp, or to participate in sports.

For the most part, everyone undergoes the same physical exam. However, there are differences when it comes to reproductive health. During your physical, we may conduct additional tests or exams particular to your reproductive organs such as a pelvic or prostate exam.

What happens during a physical?
The exact procedure will depend on what type of physical you are having. During the exam, we will review your medical and family history for any potential risk of health complications. If there are any concerns, additional health screenings may be required.

This is a great time to let us know of any concerns or questions you may have regarding your health.

A physical examination typically begins with the measurement of vital signs and responses before undergoing a more comprehensive examination of your condition and health.
