The practice is very concerned as to improving your state of health and they deliver. My A1C went from Type 2 Diabetes, 6.6, just starting but still the label sticks, down to 5.5, which is well into normal human being level (pre-Diabetes starts at 5.7). I also lost 45 lbs. while on the program. However, my bad, I have gained half the weight back by no following my guidelines and delving into all the high carb sugar goodies that keep presenting themselves to me. Back to my green leaves and chicken!
