We're starting to see many health risks associated with diabetes in the earlier stage of prediabetes.
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) January 13, 2015
PreDiabetes Centers, a rapidly expanding diabetes prevention company offering personalized prediabetes treatment, has moved to a new location in Pittsburgh to better serve its fast-growing client base.
The PreDiabetes Center of Pittsburgh is now permanently located at 2100 Wharton Street, Suite 315. The Center’s telephone number is still (412) 515-8400.
A detailed map and directions to the new PreDiabetes Center of Pittsburgh can be found on the PreDiabetes Centers website.
At the PreDiabetes Center of Pittsburgh, clients will continue to receive top-notch, individualized treatment from Lauren Loya, MD, and the rest of the prediabetes health team. With the assistance of a health coach, Dr. Loya oversees treatment of clients enrolled in a 12-month program that uses the latest breakthroughs in medicine, nutritional supplementation, prediabetes diet planning, customized fitness and hormone therapy.
Dr. Loya is a board-certified physician who specializes in hormone dynamics, a key focus of the PreDiabetes Centers diabetes prevention program. She is Medical Director at PreDiabetes Centers and helps direct the physician-led, evidence-based PATHFinder prediabetes treatment program. Prior to this post, Dr. Loya served on the faculty of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Family Practice Residency Program.
Dr. Loya uses comprehensive, integrated medical and lifestyle treatment to help patients with prediabetes stop the progression to diabetes–a disease in which the body is unable to produce or use insulin effectively.
While prediabetes may seem like a harmless condition, it’s not.
“We’re starting to see many health risks associated with diabetes in the earlier stage of prediabetes,” said Loya, including an increased risk for cardiovascular disease.
More than 86 million Americans have prediabetes. Many people with prediabetes already show signs of eye damage, kidney damage and nerve damage–health complications that typically accompany type 2 diabetes.
People who are concerned about their health can take the Diabetes Risk Survey–a score-based assessment that calculates a person’s individual risk factors for type 2 diabetes. They can also schedule a free blood screening on the PreDiabetes Center website.
