L-Glutamine- Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the bloodstream. It is most notable for its healing properties to the gastrointestinal tract and is helpful with ulcers, IBS, and gluten sensitivities.* Elevated cortisol levels from trauma (wounds, burns, surgeries) can deplete glutamine levels. In solution L-Glutamine is virtually tasteless. Glutamine is considered “anti-catabolic “which means it can help your body maintain muscle under stress or disease. Athletes use Glutamine for this purpose, to help muscles recover from exercise and to prevent the loss of muscle while dieting. Some people use glutamine for digestive system conditions such as stomach ulcers, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn’s disease.

People who have HIV (AIDS) sometimes use glutamine to prevent weight loss (HIV wasting).

Defy Medical strives to provide both quality medical care along with affordable access to compounded medications, blood tests, and nutritional supplements. In order to accomplish this, Defy Medical does not accept any form of insurance. Many of the formulations we use in our therapies are not covered by insurance, and the cost of overall treatment is often less than when using insurance. On case by case basis, some insurance companies do reimburse for Hormone Replacement Therapy and Testosterone Replacement Therapy. It is each patient's responsibility to contact their own insurance company to confirm reimbursement. Defy Medical will not contact your insurance company nor will take any responsibility for any additional forms your insurance requires. Defy Medical provides claim assistance by completing the standard claim form (CMS-1500) for the patient to submit to their insurance company.
