Diabetes Reversal Program



Is Diabetes Reversible?

Midland Health in its mission to make Midland the healthiest community in Texas is proud to announce a new program for those with Type 2 Diabetes (T2D). This will be one of the only programs in our area that will offer a lifestyle-based approach to reverse diabetes.

Recent studies show conclusively that with the proper lifestyle changes, T2D can be successfully reversed and consistently put into full or partial remission. Like other leading killers- especially heart disease and high blood pressure-type 2 diabetes is an unfortunate consequence of poor dietary choices. However, there is hope. Through lifestyle changes, you may be able to achieve a complete remission of type 2 diabetes or rely less on prescription medications.

This unique program will be offered at the Lifestyle Medicine Center by Dr. Padmaja Patel in a group visit set up.
