Have you been told you have diabetes and you don’t know what to eat? Diabetes can feel overwhelming. Our goal is to make it feel less overwhelming. Many things affect your blood sugar such as the food you eat, the medication you take, stress and physical activity. It is important to understand your condition and take control of your diabetes to prevent complications such as kidney, eye, foot or heart issues.
With our expertise, we help you understand the impact of food on blood sugar and how to self-manage your diabetes. Our first visit includes a thorough assessment of your lifestyle, medical background and eating patterns to create a clear, individualized action plan with customized meal plans, recipes and specific behavior goals.
You can expect to leave motivated and empowered with the new knowledge, skills and expert support. We can also discuss new technology such as continuous glucose monitors which track blood sugar to help you stay on top of your condition.
These are common diabetes conditions we work with:
- Type 1
- Type 2
- Gestational Diabetes
- High blood sugars as a result of medication side effects
The key that Stacy provided to unlock my ignorance about my dietary concerns was that for the first time, somebody explained in very simple terms how the food we eat ( what / when / and how much ) should work in conjunction with the medications. Bottom line, my A1C in the past four months went from 7.5 to 6.7 and my endocrinologist has drastically reduced my insulin and discontinued two other medications. I feel better, I feel stronger, I sleep better, I certainly eat better. My quality of life has improved immensely, thank you Stacy!— Pete R., Denver
