New Start Diabetes Program
While there are genetic factors that affect one's diabetes risk, most patients with Type 2 Diabetes are overweight or obese, making their condition worse, and obesity itself causes some degree of insulin resistance. Losing as little as 5% of your weight can help you better manage diabetes and possibly minimize your use of diabetic medications. Additionally, moderate weight loss has been shown to improve hyperglycemia, dyslipidemia and hypertension in patients with Type 2 Diabetes.
At New Start Medical we will help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight and improve your glucose control, blood pressure control as well as your cholesterol values. Our program will help you establish permanent, healthy lifestyle changes that can help decrease your risk of multiple medical conditions associated with being overweight or obese.
