CHANGE IS HARD.
Adopting and adhering to new diabetes programs and treatments is tough even for the most committed patients. Reasons for poorly controlled diabetes are complex and management is complicated.
We guide patients to the right content, when they need it, as each person's diabetes journey is unique. Through one-on-one interaction between the patient and the Fit4D coach, patients receive tips and suggestions on how to remain adherent to diabetes medication and their overall treatment plan as well as recommendations for nutrition and exercise with positive motivation and support throughout.
Coaching in the Personalized Fit4D Pathways is based on the principles of motivational interviewing, a technique which helps patients increase their own desire to change behavior. Fit4D coaches uniquely empower and inspire people living with diabetes to help them take a more active role in their health.
