PCI Hosting Health Transitions Seminar on Feb. 22
February 22, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Health Transitions Clinic at Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa is hosting a free introductory seminar at 7 p.m. Feb. 22 in the Community Room at PCI Medical Pavilion, 202 10th St. SE, Cedar Rapids.
The medically-supervised weight-loss program helps those who are overweight, and dealing with medical issues that accompany the condition, including:
- Type 2 diabetes mellitus
- High blood pressure
- Sleep apnea
- High cholesterol
- Back pain
- Heart disease
- Chronic back pain
- Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
The 10-month program offers guidance from a physician and dietitian, monthly check-ins, support meetings and tools to track progress.
The process starts with an understanding of what dietary changes are necessary, implementing those changes, coupled with simultaneous changes in medications. Close monitoring of weight, blood pressure and blood sugar are necessary through this process. After initial weight loss, the team helps participants transition to an active lifestyle and develop a new diet they can maintain and enjoy. This program is specifically designed for people with type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes and those at risk for developing diabetes.
Since its inception, Health Transitions Clinic has helped more than 500 people lose 15,000 total pounds and end their dependence on medications and insulin.
