A little bit about me:
I began with a history of diabetes in 1987, when my son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 16 months. Since then, I’ve pursued my education first as a Registered Nurse, then a Nurse Practitioner and Certified Diabetes Educator and now with a Doctorate in Nursing, DNP. My research project is titled “A short term intervention study using the Paleolithic Diet to prevent pre-diabetes progression to Type 2 Diabetes.”
I have been Paleo for 3 years now and have been leading a Primal lifestyle. I encourage all my patients to do so and my patients have gotten remarkable results.
As I live this lifestyle daily myself, it is easy to teach others, which is what I do every day with my patients. Some patients are obese, others already have insulin resistance, some have pre-diabetes (dysmetabolic syndrome). My mission in life is the halt the progression on to Type 2 Diabetes and with the Paleolithic lifestyle, we can cure Type 2 Diabetes!
