COMMP-Diabetes Reversal Pathway
Unfortunately, there is no cure for diabetes. However, research studies support the use of intensive lifestyle intervention targeted at changing your weight to reverse the symptoms of diabetes. The COMMP team strives to provide evidence-based care to all patients. Any patient with type 2 diabetes has the option to enter the Diabetes Reversal Pathway which not only promotes weight loss but can stop the progression of diabetes.
Other benefits include:
- Medication elimination: Patients on multiple diabetes-specific (including insulin) and antihypertensive medications can see a reduction in the dose and/or number of medications necessary.
- Decreased risk of cardiovascular disease including heart attacks and strokes
- Improvements in fatty liver disease
The individualized nutrition plan within the Diabetes Reversal Pathway is based on one of the three fundamental plans all COMMP patients follow and includes the use of protein meal replacements and real food. Patients on the Diabetes Reversal Pathway work closely with dietitians to ensure they are meeting specific macronutrient and caloric goals, while addressing improvement in blood sugar, hemoglobin A1c, and total body weight. 1
