At just 29 years old, Jacqueline was on medications for type 2 diabetes and asthma. Last winter, she saw her doctor more than five times with worsening symptoms of asthma and diabetes. She realized it was time for a change. She knew her weight was having a negative impact on her health, but she was just too tired to deal with preparing healthier meals, working out and felt unmotivated. That’s when she came to Olivera Weight Management.
Within just two months on our Phentermine-based weight management program, she lost eighteen pounds and was able to go off of her diabetes and asthma medications with the approval of her primary care physician. Her Hemoglobin A1C (a lab value that indicates diabetes) went from 6.5% (indicating diabetes), to 5.5% (normal and healthy). Her asthma, which had previously been out of control, now no longer gives her any issues.
“The best part for me is the appetite suppressant pills (Phentermine). They actually work. The pills help me control my intake of food.”
With the Phentermine and the support of the clinical staff at Olivera, Jacqueline started exercising for one to two hours, three times a week. She gave up some of her trigger foods, like pork and soda, and now snacks on fruit and includes salads regularly.
“Never give up. Changing your diet can be hard, but Olivera Weight Management’s program makes it easier. The program helps you see results so much faster. When you see the results, it helps motivate you to keep on going.”
