Our approach involves a thorough analysis of metabolic function and derangement which is usually present in patients with pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes. We then develop a treatment program that targets areas of imbalance and malfunction to re-harness the body’s potential for normalizing its metabolic function. We incorporate appropriate pharmacology, adjusting medications to achieve the best outcome (many meds for cholesterol, blood pressure and depression can interfere with diabetes genetics), we view exercise and nutrition as medicine and we recommend a non-diet approach.
In her twenty five years in practice, Dr. Cooper has never had a patient develop type 2 diabetes while under her care. She believes that type 2 diabetes is preventable and that some cases of type 2 diabetes are still reversible, especially in patients with high body weight.
