Yes. Weight loss is the most effective way to prevent diabetes in people who have pre-diabetes. Exercise is also a vital part of preventing diabetes.
If a person has diabetes and is on medications, or has high blood pressure on medications, then these medications may need to be reduced as a person loses weight. We advise a visit with one of our health care providers for people with diabetes and/or high blood pressure prior to starting the program for medication adjustments and then 2-3 visits after starting for monitoring and further adjustments.
We accept most major insurance plans, including Medicare. Please contact your insurance to verify that Texas Diabetes & Endocrinology is a contracted provider.
We will be happy to provide you with any procedure codes that are to be billed so that you may confirm with your insurance plan that it is covered
