Your Diabetes Management Partner
A board-certified family practice physician, Dr. Muzzi is a graduate of the University of Florida, where she earned a degree in nutrition. One of her professional interests is promoting wellness through healthy eating, and specifically, type 2 diabetes prevention and management with the aim of returning to a non-diabetic state.
Dr. Muzzi can help you keep your blood sugar level close to normal—and delay or prevent diabetes complications—through a personalized combination of:
- Weight loss – If you have excess body weight and it is reduced or eliminated, your pancreas will be better able to keep up with your body’s demand for insulin.
- Healthy eating – There is no specific “diabetes diet.” But, you may be able to stabilize your blood sugar by reducing your consumption of refined carbohydrates and saturated fats and increasing your consumption of fruits, vegetables, and fiber. Dr. Muzzi can suggest a meal plan that fits your unique health goals, food preferences, and lifestyle.
- Regular exercise – Physical activity lowers blood sugar. Dr. Muzzi can help you find active pursuits you enjoy, such as walking, cycling, swimming, dancing, or weightlifting, and make those activities part of your daily routine.
- Diabetes medication – While some people can achieve their target blood sugar levels with diet and exercise, others still need diabetes medication. If you require medication, Dr. Muzzi will consider many factors to determine your optimum prescription.
Dr. Muzzi can also recommend an appropriate monitoring regimen to help ensure that your blood sugar level remains within the targeted range.
