Dr. Sangeeta has been invaluable in helping me turn around my deteriorating health caused by type II diabetes and chronic kidney disease. I am 69 years old. My eGFR got as low as 31. I have good doctors who take care of me, but I found that while medical doctors perform essential roles of diagnosing disease and prescribing important medications, I also needed a good licensed and experienced nutritionist on my health team to proactively deal with the causes for my declining health. This was essential to not only stopping the decline, but also reversing negative health trends I was experiencing.
I am most fortunate that I found Dr Sangeeta who has fulfilled that role beyond anything I could have imagined. My declining eGFR has turned around and in just a few months is back up to 38. My A1c is down to 6.5. Metformin has been reduced from 2,000 mg a day to 500.
In the past I have tried various diets. I lose some weight but am hungry and miserable and therefore not able to sustain what I have accomplished. Dr. Sangeeta taught me how to approach nutrition by teaching me about how various foods impact our health. How to read and understand nutrition labels and how to balance the kinds of food I eat and beverages I consume. By teaching and not merely prescribing I have been able to adjust my lifestyle so that I understand nutritional cause and effect thus be empowered to make healthy choices instead of fearfully reacting to what I see on the weight scale. Importantly, with this information I am able to eat whenever I am hungry. I just eat differently.
I don’t eat food that taste like cardboard, and I don’t have to eat gross tasting “sugar free” candies of the past. There are many new and emerging food products without unhealthy and unpleasant artificial flavors and ingredients. I have discovered a wide variety of foods and ingredients that I enjoy without sacrificing nutrition and health. Dr, Sangeeta taught me how to read and understand nutrition and food labels so I am able to make good choices and avoid being fooled by clever advertising or misleading packaging.
Thank you Dr. Sangeeta!
At first I didn’t know what expect. I found Dr Sangeeta online. This was the best thing I’ve ever done. I was 315 lbs when I called Dr Sangeeta and I had no more hope left. What she did was have faith in me so I gave it a try. Well, she did the impossible. I finally lost 30 lbs and I feel good and energetic. Her diet plan really works! Also, I am so pleased because she takes a lot of time out for me and that is what I need in my life right now. She shows compassion for others. I can’t wait for our sessions because Dr Sangeeta always has new and exciting ideas for weight loss and health.
Dr. Sangeeta has been working with our gastroenterology practice now for about a year. We refer our patients to her for nutritional management for a number of conditions and have gotten nothing but positive feedback from the patients that she has worked with. She is so compassionate and truly puts the needs of the patient first. We are so lucky to have her as a resource!
