At Diabetes & Hormone Care, the doctors and staff are committed to helping our patients lose weight, maintain weight loss and gain better control of their health. Obesity and carrying excess weight are increasingly common, which can lead to high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, Diabetes as well as other health conditions. People with and without Diabetes struggle to lose weight and may have to take multiple medications for medical problems related to the excess weight.
We have evaluated and tested a number of different weight loss solutions and work closely with our patients to recommend the methods that offer the greatest opportunities for success. Weight loss can lead to a number of important improvements in a persons overall health and is directly linked to improved Diabetes, cholesterol and blood pressure control. We focus not only on weight loss, but work with our patients to maintain that weight loss long-term. Diabetics frequently can reduce their blood-sugar-lowering medication, including insulin, by losing weight.
Our programs are medically supervised for our patients with Diabetes, but are also open to people who have pre-diabetes or don't have Diabetes at all. As your health and wellness coaches, we offer one-on-one sessions. Our goal is to educate, motivate and support you through your weight loss journey. Our programs are medically designed with two components – sensible weight loss and sustainable, stable weight maintenance. Our weight loss strategies include the use of nutrition education, diet and exercise plans as well as FDA-approved weight loss medications if necessary.
