Health Transitions Clinic at Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa is hosting a free introductory seminar at 7 pm, Thursday, March 14, in the Community Room at PCI Medical Pavilion.
Those who are pre-diabetic, recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes or struggling to control blood sugar, should come to the free seminar. Interested individuals will learn more about Health Transitions Clinic, which in a few short years has helped more than 500 people lose 15,000 total pounds and end their dependence on medications and insulin.
After our 10-month program, successful patients are no longer at the mercy of multiple medications, struggling to control their diabetes and high blood pressure or avoiding physical activities. Not only can patients control type 2 diabetes, but, by closely following the program, they can reduce or completely eliminate insulin.
The program offers guidance from a physician, a dietician, monthly check-ins, support meetings and tools to track progress.
The process starts with an understanding of what dietary changes are necessary, implementing those changes, coupled with simultaneous changes in medications. Close monitoring of weight, blood pressure and blood sugar are necessary through this process. After initial weight loss, the team helps participants transition to an active lifestyle and develop a new diet they can maintain and enjoy. This program is specifically designed for people with type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes and those at risk for developing diabetes.
Attendance at the free seminar is the first step in the plan. To learn more about Health Transitions Clinic and to RSVP for the free seminar, go to http://healthtransitionsclinic.com.
