“For years my doctor tried to get me to improve on my lifestyle habits… when I had to start on insulin, he suggested I see an educator. I loved the program, learned a lot, found the nurse educator and the nutritionist very helpful, knowledgeable, encouraging and supportive. My questions got answered, and over time I made of lot of lifestyle changes. I lost 95 pounds by eating better, I exercise most days, my A1c dropped from over 12%, to 5.4%, and I am completely off insulin now.” Steve - GHC patient

"I was very fortunate to receive a [nutrition]referral from my doctor to help me control my pre-diabetes... During 2020, the Covid Lockdowns impacted both my weight and blood glucose. Diane helped me become more aware of my eating habits and encouraged me to exercise. She recommended a [dietary] goal. I really like many of the food swaps she suggested. I’m pleased I shed my Covid weight, plus an additional 5 pounds. Blood sugar and cholesterol are better, too!" Tammy - NHC patient
