An estimated 26 million Americans have diabetes in addition to 79 million others who have pre-diabetes, a precursor to irreversible type 2 diabetes. Put another way, over 100 million Americans are now affected by damaging blood sugar levels. Diane Kress, owner and director of the Nutrition Center of Morristown, New Jersey, specializes in diabetes management, metabolic disorders, and weight reduction, and she is convinced that her one-of-a-kind program can prevent or control diabetes and in most cases decrease or even eliminate the need for diabetes medications.
In addition to explaining the diagnosis and what it means, Kress explains how and when to monitor blood sugar and through her “Core Miracle” diet, lose weight and lower sugar levels to acceptable levels. She claims that by following her diet and beginning an exercise program, blood sugar improvements can be seen within as little as one week.
Easy to understand and implement, the lifestyle program outlined by Diane Kress could be a step in bringing down the shocking national numbers of those facing type 2 diabetes.
