If you live with Type 2 Diabetes, you need more than a couple of visits.


I have been a physician for 14 years. I have worked in the health and wellness industry for the past 24 years, and I was a child growing up with Type 2 Diabetes.


I will disagree with this 100%...maybe that is the reason people are still sick.


The typical 3-month doctor appointment just means getting labs, vitals, and adjusting meds. Maybe check your feet, depression, and eyes. And, of course, med refills. In my experience, this care does not help patients achieve remission of Type 2 Diabetes. Patients need intensive care and support, especially at the beginning and when A1c is two digits.


An appointment every six months is something I would recommend to one of my patients who has achieved remission and sustained it for the past 12 months. (ADA defines remission in 3 months, but the reality is that sustaining it beyond that is what is essential.)


The National Diabetes Prevention Program, for example, offers weekly appointments for 1 hour for the first six months and then monthly. And if you already have Type 2 Diabetes, you need this intensive support. The American College of Lifestyle Medicine called it Intensive Therapeutic Lifestyle Behaviors. While the Diabetes self-management education program helps patients learn how to live with Type 2 Diabetes, it does not necessarily achieve remission, AKA A1c less than 5.7%.


So, as a person who lived with Type 2 Diabetes, I decided to use my medical, health, and wellness knowledge to develop an intensive 12-week group medical appointment program called the Type 2 Diabetes Transformation Method.


I am sharing the root cause of Type 2 Diabetes in my FREE masterclass: Type 2 Diabetes Transformation Masterclass: How To Transform Your Metabolism and Balance Your Blood Sugar When Living with Type 2 Diabetes.
