Welcome to San Ysidro Health’s one-year, lifestyle-change program, Small Steps, Big Changes.
In this program, patients work together in small groups to find successful ways to improve their eating habits and physical activity levels. This program has been proven to reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Most patients who complete the program lose 5 to 7% of their initial weight!
Our program is for patients who are diagnosed with prediabetes, have a BMI of 25 to 35, and are 18 years of age or older. If you are interested, but unsure if you qualify, please get in touch and we can help. We have programs for everyone!
The majority of classes are delivered virtually, however patients do come into the clinic for an in-person check-in four times during the year.
The frequency of the classes also varies. See below for a schedule overview.
Our qualified lifestyle-coaches will work with you to increase your knowledge and understanding of diabetes and give you practical skills to build healthy habits.
Also, by working in a group setting throughout the one-year program, you will receive support and advice when you hit hard times. The group will help ensure you can get back on track, so that you achieve your goals.
Here is an outline of the topics that are covered in detail throughout the year:
