Health Transitions Clinic at Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa to host free seminar at Buchanan County Health Center
Health Transitions Clinic at Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa is hosting a free introductory seminar at 6 pm, Wednesday, May 9th, in Meeting Rooms A&B at Buchanan County Health Center (BCHC).
Health Transitions Clinic is Cedar Rapids’ leading medically-supervised weight loss program. The 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, a dietician, monthly check-ins, support meetings and tools to track progress.
Since its inception, Health Transitions Clinic has helped more than 500 people lose 15,000 total pounds and reduce their dependence on medications and insulin.
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.
Attendance at the free seminar is the first step in the plan. To learn more about Health Transitions Clinic and to RSVP for the free seminar, please call (319) 247-3899 or go to http://healthtransitionsclinic.com/free-seminar/.
