Beating Diabetes Success Story with Tina


Welcome to the newly released Beating Diabetes Podcast with Dr. Michele.

This year the podcast will be focusing on all things diabetes. As your host, I’ll be recording solo episodes which will answer some of the most common questions I’m asked as a physician such as “what CAN I eat as a diabetic?”, “how can I lose the extra weight that I’ve put on recently?”, “is it really possible to reverse type 2 diabetes?”, “What can I do to prevent my children from getting diabetes since it runs in the family?” and more. I will also be coaching patients and clients live on-air, and conducting interviews with other diabetic experts.

Today Dr. Michele is sharing a “Beating Diabetes Success Story” with you. Meet Tina and find out how she beat diabetes, lowered her A1c to 6.1, and got off of diabetic medications. 

I hope you enjoy the show!
