When I first visited Enhanced Wellness, I was on medication for high blood pressure, and high cholesterol and had just gotten bloodwork showing my A1-C in the diabetic range. This was a real wake up call for me since I had seen what this disease did to my father, and this was not what I wanted to go through or put my family through. My regular doctor mentioned another medication I could take to lower my A1-C, but I wanted to try something else that did not include another medication.
When I first met with Kelly, she asked me what my goals were, and I told her that I did not want to go on medication for diabetes (reverse my insulin resistance and lower my A1-C) and come off my blood pressure and cholesterol medication. Following Kelly’s and her team’s guidance, I have lowered my A1-C from 6.5 to 5.3, have quit taking my blood pressure and cholesterol medication, have more energy and no longer have constant body aches and stiffness. I feel better than I have in a long time. Although weight loss was not my goal, so far I have lost over 25 pounds.
