If you want better control of your type 2 diabetes, this program is ideal for you.
Our Diabetes Reversal Program is a step by step plan to take control of type 2 diabetes’ by Dr. David Cavan. You’ll learn how to adopt a healthy lifestyle and dietary changes to reduce your carbohydrate intake and increase physical activity. You’ll have the support of a group of peers who have the same goal as you. Plus the focus of our supportive medical staff. You don’t have to fight diabetes alone. Many have seen remarkable results that have lowered BMI and reduced or stopped using medications like Pioglitazone and Metformin.
You don’t have to walk around with very high blood sugars and rampant disease. You can move that in the other direction. Changing your lifestyle to reverse the process that leads to type 2 diabetes, and in some cases, reverse the disease is the aim of this program.
What You Can Expect in the Program
Lifestyle Management, Months 1-3
Patients will be invited to attend a weekly Lifestyle Management Program for six weeks that will reinforce dietary messages, provide peer support, and encourage increased physical activity within their lifestyles. Each session will accommodate up to 12 patients in a group setting and be facilitated by staff with expertise in nutrition, behavior change, and psychology, with input from a Diabetologist as required.
Lifestyle Update Groups, Months 5-11
After completing the six sessions, patients will be invited to four update sessions, and each one will provide a recap of content from previous sessions, with extended time to review the progress to date of each participant and supporting them in overcoming any obstacles to achieving their goals.
Consultation with Diabetologist, Months 2-12
