Gestational Diabetes Isn’t So Scary Anymore
Thanks for your help with my Gestational Diabetes. I’ve now been tested twice and my levels have been where they should be. I’m so grateful to your for teaching me how to properly manage my carb intake to regulate my blood sugar….I know how scared I was when first diagnosed – not just that it would be difficult to monitor my diet but also that I was doing something unintentionally to harm the baby….I carry the “carb count” cheat sheet you gave me wherever I go! —Magen H.

Lowering Cholesterol with a Busy Lifestyle
A hospital executive I was recently working with wanted to lose weight and improve cholesterol levels. However, with a very demanding job and lifestyle, overhauling his diet was not an option. With gradual changes, he lost 40 pounds in 6 months and improved his cholesterol levels as well. While people were constantly remarking how great he looked, he told me he felt almost guilty about how easy the entire process was.
Simple and Effective Management of Diabetes
Recently, a woman came in who’s blood sugar levels were suddenly increasing after years of being well controlled. By teaching her some simple techniques and making some minor adjustments to her diet she was able to lose almost 50# in 5 months and her blood sugars were better controlled than they had even been before.
