- Significantly reduce your risk of Type 2 diabetes.
- Lower cholesterol and glucose levels, blood pressure and associated health risks.
Our programs feature medical monitoring, regular classes, private consultations with weight loss experts, support groups and training to break old habits and develop healthy, lifelong new routines. For more information, or to sign-up for a program, call (650) 696-4772.
During our individual nutrition counseling sessions, a registered dietician and certified diabetes educator provides nutrition and lifestyle analysis, along with a personalized eating plan to help manage multiple health conditions, including prediabetes, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, irritable bowel syndrome and kidney disease. Our Advantage in Weight Loss program is series of eight, one-on-one appointments with a registered dietician that is tailored to help you lose weight and develop a healthier lifestyle. Our programs are available for adults and children.
In addition to weight loss, past participants in our programs have seen significant improvements in health outcomes, including lowering high blood sugar and high triglycerides levels and reducing LDL (bad) cholesterol.
In some cases, your health plan may cover all or part of the costs of a formal weight management program. Check with your health plan for details.
