Tom is a 46-year old male from Cork who has reversed his Type 2 diabetes while on the RediCare program and displayed significant improvement across all the major markers.
It was a great start to September for RediCare. Earlier in the month we presented our results in treating High Cholesterol, Blood Pressure and Obesity at the annual European Congress of Internal Medicine conference in Amsterdam.
I am a Type 1 Diabetic so I have to inject myself daily. Approx 6 or 7 weeks into the program I realised I wasn’t feeling the need to administer as much insulin, in fact to date I have cut out my morning insulin and reduced my lunchtime amount by 2 units and my dinner amount also by 2 units.
The program was so thorough, your steps are tracked through an activity tracker, your weight through a scales and you log your foods through an easy to use app. All the information is going to your Health Coach who monitors you on a daily basis. Just knowing that someone is keeping an eye on your progress really keeps you on your toes – there’s no hiding!
Everything was measured there was no subjectivity in it. I stuck to the program and the results follow on. The program proves itself and it was down to me to knuckle down and embrace the changes-which I did. I found it great to come weekly to my Health Coach Cynthia, to get feedback, encouragement and weekly emails from her, because unfortunately other people may try to knock your progress. I felt she really wanted to see me do well.
How is the RediCare Weight Loss Program different?
The RediCare Weight Loss Program is a doctor-led program. The program is broken into two phases – weight loss and weight stability. We spend at least as much time teaching you to maintain a stable weight as we do teaching you to lose weight because research shows that it’s more important for your long term success.
Michael is a 39 year old male who has lost a whopping -5 stone weight and reduced his cholesterol by a whopping -39% thus far on the RediCare program. Michael started out the program in February 2015 just shy of 23 stone weight and was classed as Obese 3. His blood pressure was quite elevated […]
