Every diabetes case is different. We will work with you to develop a personalized treatment according to your specific needs. Your plan may use a combination of approaches.
Choose high-fiber, nutrient-dense foods and limit sweets, salt and unhealthy fats in your diet. Be more physically active. Increased activity helps your body use insulin more effectively. Walking around the neighborhood is an excellent place to start.
Losing about 5% to 7% of your body weight is enough to lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. For example, if you weigh 250 pounds, you should aim to lose between 13 to 18 pounds.
If diet and exercise alone do not lower your blood sugar level, your provider may suggest adding medication.
This 12-month program, recognized by the CDC, helps you prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes with the assistance of trained lifestyle coaches.
