Diabetes

Diabetes is a disease that affects the production or efficiency of insulin in the body. Unmanaged diabetes creates damage to blood vessels and leads to complications such as blindness, amputations, strokes and heart attacks.  By managing your diabetes with diet, exercise and sometimes medication, the damage on the vessels is minimized.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) causes damage to the health of your kidneys, usually over time. When your kidneys are not in good health, it is time to change what you eat and drink so your body will work well and you will feel better.

Because there is not a one size fits all approach, we take into account your lifestyle, labs, food preferences, health risk factors, and other factors. We know change is hard and we can give you the tools and support you need to be successful.

Success Stories

from wellness achievers

“I started working with Wendy when I was having a few health issues and wanting to lose the extra weight I had been carrying around. Best decision I made for myself. With weekly check-ins and helping me with what foods were best for me, I started to feel like myself again and lost weight in the process. I felt comfortable and knew that my concerns were taken into account and that Wendy truly cared about me. She listens and makes you feel like you are her top priority. I would recommend her to anyone in a heart beat. She changed my life and how I think about my health now.”

— L. Sanchez

“Wendy is one of the most compassionate and friendly people that I have ever met. I met with her after being diagnosed with diabetes. She took all of my concerns and questions in stride, and provided me so much information in my first visit that I took with me and really took to heart. She was so genuinely excited for me when my weight started to drop and I was also genuinely excited to see that someone was so concerned for my well being overall, not just one aspect of it. I would highly recommend Wendy, as not only is she knowledgeable and will provide you correct information on how to manage your diagnosis, but it’s also nice almost having a “coach” on your side cheering on your success. Thank you so much Wendy!”

— Octavio

“Wendy is a very good at asking the right questions and listening. She took time to understand what my situation was and help me come up with a plan to progress. She helped me set realistic goals and work towards them. From my time with Wendy, I feel like I can eat much healthier, not just right now in a short term diet, but long term for years to come. I felt like Wendy was personally interested in seeing me progress, which made me want to progress even more. I have recommended Wendy to several friends and will continue.”
