PreDiabetes Centers Health Coach Helps Clients Reverse the Progression to Diabetes
Date:7/16/2013

Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) July 16, 2013

PreDiabetes Centers is proud to introduce its esteemed Pittsburgh-area health coach, Elisabeth Dorosh, RN, who guides and educates clients of PreDiabetes Centers through the 12-month prediabetes treatment program. As a registered nurse, Health Coach Dorosh evaluates vital health measures and promotes a nurturing treatment environment for clients at the PreDiabetes Center of Pittsburgh. She works closely with clients, motivating and ensuring that they stay engaged as they progress in the program.

Health Coach Dorosh graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing at the University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing. Prior to joining PreDiabetes Centers, she worked as a postpartum nurse at Magee-Womens Hospital in Pittsburgh. Additionally, she has extensive experience in health, nutrition, sexual health, stress and alcohol education.

As a prediabetes health coach, Dorosh meets with clients who had no idea they were developing diabetes. In fact, most were shocked to learn they were prediabetic. Many clients knew they needed a healthier lifestyle, they just didn’t know how to achieve it, notes Dorosh.

That’s when a prediabetes health coach comes in handy.    

“I get to walk alongside clients in their health journey to support and challenge them and help them set and achieve their goals,” said Health Coach Dorosh.

Dorosh–along with the rest of the PreDiabetes Centers treatment team, which includes a prediabetes physician, concierge chef and personal trainer–works one-on-one with clients to treat the harmful metabolic disorders that accompany prediabetes. Metabolic conditions such as a hormone imbalance or obesity or play a key role in the development of prediabetes and diabetes.

One client who Dorosh coaches, Mary–her name has been changed to protect her privacy–has made remarkable progress after starting the treatment program just three months ago.

“At our first visit, Mary was nearly in tears, overwhelmed by the diet changes she would need to make,” recalls Dorosh. “But she committed to give this program her best efforts.”

And that’s just what Mary did.

With Dorosh’s guidance, Mary dove headfirst into a treatment plan that was custom-made for her by the prediabetes health team.

Improving Mary’s nutritional intake was one of the first steps.

“I sat with Mary and discussed whole foods she could eat and helped her create a meal plan that would work for her,” said Health Coach Dorosh.

In addition to starting the advanced dietary plan, Mary received treatment for underlying conditions, including a thyroid condition, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, inflammation, obesity, and diverticulitis (a common digestive disease).

The prediabetes health team used integrated, holistic treatment to tackle Mary’s declining health, which included targeted medications prescribed by the physician, a specialized nutraceutical regimen, fitness training and sleep and stress therapy.

In the last several weeks, Mary’s health has improved dramatically. She has lost more than 20 pounds and has higher energy levels. Another boon: The muscle and knee pain she had suffered from has been alleviated. Her biomarker numbers–measurements of chemicals and substances in the blood that can indicate disease–are gradually improving, which is paving the way for her to achieve a diabetes-free life.

Mary is branching out and trying new foods that were introduced to her in the prediabetes meal plan.

“Some of her favorite foods are things she had never tried before beginning this program!” said Health Coach Dorosh.

Said Dorosh, “It has been a privilege to share in her journey–to see her take control of her life and begin to turn things around. She has learned that she is strong, committed and that she can change–little by little, meal by meal, day by day.”

If left unchecked, prediabetes can progress to type 2 diabetes, a serious health condition that occurs when the body does not use insulin properly, which can lead to dangerous long-term health disorders, such as heart disease, nerve damage and kidney disease.

“If we catch it early, or prevent it entirely, we can keep a person from ever developing this myriad of diseases,” said Health Coach Dorosh.

Dorosh coaches clients at the PreDiabetes Center of Pittsburgh, located at 2541 East Carson Street.

Those who feel they may be at risk for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes can take this free diabetes risk assessment to find out where they stand on the road to diabetes. Or, people have the option of scheduling a complimentary blood screening online or at 1-855-399-7733 (PRED).
