Battling Diabetes Through Diet from BistroMD: Bariatric Physician Dr. Caroline Cederquist Provides Insight into Startling Rise in Diabetes Cases

NAPLES, Fla., Nov. 11, 2010 — A recent report from The Centers for Disease Control reveals that diabetes cases could triple by the year 2050. With these alarming statistics, it is more critical than ever that Americans focus on the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Diabetes is a serious health condition, and it currently affects over 23 million people in the United States. The major factors that have contributed to so many new cases of diabetes include poor eating habits, a lack of exercise, and an increase in the rate of obesity. Since November is National Diabetes Month, it's more important than ever to take the necessary precautions.

"If you are overweight, and are pre-diabetic, it is important that you take the initiative to change your eating habits," says Dr. Caroline Cederquist, bariatric physician and founding physician of BistroMD.

"Many of my at-risk patients were able to decrease their chances of being diagnosed with diabetes after engaging in a healthy eating plan," says Cederquist. "These patients were given meals that were both nutritionally balanced and low glycemic. With the right foods they were able to keep their blood sugars stable and lose the weight they needed to."

BistroMD is the #1 physician-designed, weight loss delivery program in the United States, which also offers a menu specifically customized for those who are pre-diabetic, or living with Type 2 diabetes.

The diabetic safe menu provided by BistroMD offers meals that give clients the proper glycemic load to stabilize blood sugar through the right balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fat.

"If more people took those first steps towards eating the right foods, I think we would see the number of new diabetes cases gradually decreasing, while overall wellness levels increase," says Dr. Cederquist.
