Living with diabetes doesn’t mean that your quality of life should suffer. With the New Direction® program, you can benefit from the personal support and expert advice in diabetes control from a trained medical professional specializing in weight loss.
The New Direction program offers a medically supervised Diabetes Component to help you control your weight and improve your health. The Diabetes Component consists of guidelines for screening prospective patients and monitoring patients’ weight loss and its effect on their diabetes. It also includes special educational materials and counseling guidelines.
