How Do I Start My Diabetes Counseling?

Step 1.

Diabetes does NOT have a “One size fits all” program; it needs to be individualized to your lifestyle.

Please complete:

Request an appointment 

Basic Demographic information
Insurance Information (if applicable) 

  • Health History Form

Get Started

Bodyworx is here to customize your meal plans to YOUR lifestyle to reverse the course of diabetes. 

Step 2.

Once we have gathered all of this information, you will be contacted within 24 hours to set up a meeting time either in person or online. Your first visit will be approx.  1-1.5 hours in length with a Nurse Practitioner who is a Certified Diabetes Educator,  Nutritionist, and Health Coach.

During this visit, they will obtain a detailed diet, activity, and medical history.

If in person: a physical exam, weight, height, blood pressure, and comprehensive foot exam will be done.

If online:  verbal weight, height, and recent blood pressure readings.

Step 3.

Together, you’ll start designing a simple meal plan that fits your budget and satisfies your tastes to help live a healthier lifestyle.  Visits will be based on your diabetes educational needs and budget.
