The “Team Approach”

Your medical provider will order the right tests and prescribe the right medications, but 99% of the job of staying healthy and changing your metabolism to delay or avoid diabetes is up to you. For the rest of your life, YOU will be the leader of your healthcare team. You deserve a personalized education that can’t be provided by booklets, friends, or the internet. A personal education your doctor doesn’t have time to provide. Our Registered Dietitian/Nutritionists are experts on “Lifestyle Medicine” for pre-diabetes who can help you navigate the myths and confusion surrounding diabetes. We can help you limit your need for medications, understand exactly how to reduce your risk, and show you the best tools available for putting you in control of your health.


Slow down the progression towards diabetes

Hearing your doctor say that you have a diagnosis of prediabetes may sound very frightening or it might sound like the doctor is saying that it’s not a big deal because it doesn’t require medicine yet.  What we want you to know is that while pre-diabetes is a very big deal, you can use this news as a wake-up call that allows you to delay the onset of diabetes by decade or cut your risk for diabetes by HALF.

It might be surprising that the metabolic problems that cause diabetes are often present for years before you ever are told that you have elevated blood sugar.  You have the ability to slow down the “natural history” of diabetes in your own life and to gain a “legacy effect” when you take control earlier.

Our Approach

“Lifestyle Medicine” is powerfully effective. And yet, making changes to how you eat and working in physical activity can be very challenging.

We start with questions about your individual health risks–medications, blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol. We want to know about the details of where food and physical activity fit within your life, your family, and your work. We care about what goals you value most.

Then, we work with you to help achieve your goals by offering specific insights and options for the most effective (and least painful) ways to achieve them.

No magic, no pills. Healthy real foods. Extra years of healthy life.
