Monica talks to Dr. Eva about reversing her Type 2 Diabetes during lockdown
“Obesity increases risk of COVID-19 death by 48%, the risk of ending up in hospital by 113% and the likelihood of admission to an Intensive Care Unit by 74%”. Pick up today’s Farmer’s Journal to read more on this and empower yourself to losing weight from Monica’s story. Obesity is a risk factor that you can do something about, unlike your age or gender. This topic of excess weight causing illness is still a taboo in Ireland and should not be so.
As a nation we are trusting our health in the hands of the doctors and while some encourage their patients to take personal responsibility and action to lose weight- like Monica’s GP- many prescribe medications when the first line of action should be dietary and lifestyle changes. Us as taxpayers are paying for often unnecessary medications for mainly lifestyle related conditions such as type 2 diabetes, and those taking them suffer the side effects, both physical and mental.
Our amazing Monica came to see us just a few days before lockdown in March, after being newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. She did the whole diet via digital consultations with our team as our clinics were solely operating digitally until restrictions lifted, and she’s now reversed her type 2 diabetes after losing just over 3 stone!
