“I was feeling sick and tired for a long time. I had blood tests done revealing I was pre-diabetic. I immediately started seeing a dietitian at Outpatient Nutrition Services of Tower Health she reviewed my blood test numbers with me and came up with a meal plan to suit me and my lifestyle. I lost weight, my numbers are down, I have not felt sick and I have a lot more energy. Do not diet instead make a lifestyle change by eating right and exercising even little changes will make a difference. Doing something is better than doing nothing.”

"I was recently diagnosed with Diabetes @ 56 yrs old. Having had gestational diabetes, I remembered a little bit of what I needed to do but I felt I needed a refresher and also wanted personal attention. I made an appointment with Ann Wellock at the Reading Hospital Nutrition office and my experience was amazing. Ann helped me to understand what I needed to eat and how to make a meal plan that incorporated the important food groups so I would not miss having any important vitamins. Ann took the time (over an hour) to go over ALL of my questions and we came up with a plan that fit my lifestyle. I am happy to report that after 3 months, I have lost 15% of my body weight and on the way to losing another 12%. I feel much better and my A1C levels have gone down enough that I no longer need the diabetes medicine. I would highly recommend making an appointment with Ann, she is knowledgeable about nutrition and gives lots of tips to help make the patient successful."
