If so, my new venture can help, and better yet, for FREE. Built initially to support weight management, Constant Health, our new digital behavioural intervention, is being re-positioned to help people with newly diagnosed diabetes and pre-diabetes who in turn have been left stranded by COVID19.Constant Health's iOS app (note, this opportunity is currently only available for those with iPhones or iPads as the Android app is still in development), will provide you with 12 weeks of private and secure (PHIPA compliant) access to both a Mayo clinic certified health coach as well as a registered dietitian who together, by way of text messaging and video chats, will work collaboratively with you on your diet and lifestyle to help improve your blood sugar control and teach you about your new condition. Constant Health's technology includes a robust, open-ended collaborative goal setting engine, a built-in food diary, a searchable and filterable database of millions of the web's most popular recipe sites, along with a proprietary real-time dashboard which will allow our team to applaud and encourage your success as well as to help troubleshoot your struggles.As with my office's practice (the Bariatric Medical Institute), Constant Health's services aren't limited to any particular dietary strategy, but instead work with you on whatever approach you feel would best suit your life and preferences. From low-fat, to keto, to vegan and everything in between Constant Health can help.Rest assured, there are no strings whatsoever. Currently, thanks to an unrestricted grant from Novo Nordisk, we have a limited number of spots available to freely offer and plainly, we are not currently accepting paid patients. However due to provincial medical licensing regulations for both MDs and RDs, and the need for physician screening, we can currently only extend this offer to Ontarians.If you're interested, live in Ontario, and have an iPhone, simply fill out this quick survey and if eligible, our office will contact you to book a consultation with me so that I can explore your medical history and have a peek at your lab results for us to mutually determine if the program is for you.�������� http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ Saturday Stories: This Week in #COVID19 http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/fLgR/~3/pWOgmgqqDEE/weightymatters~Saturday-Stories-This-Week-in-COVID.html http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/fLgR/~3/pWOgmgqqDEE/weightymatters~Saturday-Stories-This-Week-in-COVID.html Sat, 02 May 2020 09:30:00 UTC at Weighty Matters Arlene Reid, 51, mother of 5 and PSW in Ontario working in LTC, died from COVID19 on April 27th.
