Many times, people come to me immediately after medical news. Pre-Diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension are the most common. The news is rarely a total surprise but shocking all the same. So Now what?
More than likely, your doctor will prescribe a medication and instruct you to make some lifestyle changes. Less stress, more sleep, diet and exercise. This is the recipe for nearly all of our “self induced” medical problems. But while the directions for the medications are clear, the advice for “lifestyle changes” is vague. It’s not what doctors specialize in.
