Prediabetes and Type 2 Diabetes Reversal (remission)
Prediabetes and Type 2 Diabetes can be significantly improved/reversed.
Type 2 Diabetes remission can be achieved by many people (this means normal blood sugar without medication).
I offer a range of services from a single consultation to point you in the right direction, through to provision of ongoing support to make sure you achieve your goals safely and enjoyably.
Sustained Weight Loss
Achieve your weight loss goals and improve your body shape by bringing together your individual physiology (including blood test assessment) with your lifestyle preferences and choices. Choosing the right personalised approach can significantly increase the likelihood of achieving sustained weight loss without having to battle hunger.
A single consultation may be adequate for you to get started with your weight loss approach. In addition more in-depth blood tests and tailoring of your choices can help accelerate weight loss, and break through plateaus.
A healthy and sustainable approach to weight loss will also improve your wider metabolic health and your wellbeing.
Metabolic Syndrome Diagnosis & Reversal
Metabolic syndrome (also known as insulin resistance syndrome) is a common diagnosable condition of poor metabolic health.
It is associated with many of our modern diseases including; type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, fatty liver, high blood pressure, some cancers, and dementia.
Addressing poor metabolic health can also help a variety of other conditions, including; polycystic ovary syndrome, obstructive sleep apnoea, inflammatory & autoimmune conditions, and some mental health conditions.
Diagnosis of metabolic syndrome can be achieved by measuring waist circumference, blood pressure and blood tests. If you have metabolic syndrome then lifestyle adjustment can usually make a significant difference to your short and long term health.
I have produced an easy to understand infographic to explain the core features of metabolic syndrome.
A single consultation (with blood tests where necessary) will be sufficient to diagnose metabolic syndrome and provide lifestyle guidance to resolve the condition. Follow up appointments and reassessment with blood tests can support continued improvement.
Optimised Health & Wellbeing
Having good metabolic health allows you to feel well, maintain your health and perform at your best. Even if you do not have a diagnosed condition, such as type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome, improving your metabolic health can provide benefits, including; a clearer and more alert mind, better mood, and a body that looks after itself with fewer infections and better performance in life, exercise and work.
Depending on your needs and goals it may suit you to have a single consultation, or a number of consultations over a period of months. Blood tests can be useful to provide more in-depth information on your metabolic health.
Personalised Medication Review
Taking numerous medications for blood pressure, cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes is now a common problem. Addressing lifestyle and improving metabolic health can sometimes lead to a reduced need for medication.
In addition medications can sometimes cause greater risks than they do benefits. The more medications you take the greater this risk can become.
A consultation(s) to review your health, lifestyle and medication can enable prescriptions to be optimised and tailored to your individual needs.
