I am a 76 year old woman who has had Diabetes for the past twenty years. Recently my blood sugar counts went completely out of whack and I became frightened. Remembering how I gave my mother daily insulin injections, I did not want this procedure to take over my life. Well, I have to express my thanks to Palm Beach Diabetes & Endocrine Specialists for their help. I thought I knew it all on how to keep myself under control. Oh was I wrong. First the Doctor reevaluated and readjusted my medication. Then I attended two very informative classes where Diabetes was explained in great detail. The exchange of thoughts with the other attendees gave me great insight of myself and what I had been doing up to then. This was followed by two one-on-one sessions with a very knowledgeable nutritionist who answered all my special questions. Then came the best learning tool ever. I attended a Supermarket Tour with a counselor from your office. I learned to properly read food labels, to understand the size of portion control, and one can still eat. Publix also gave out some very interesting literature on varied food items and products. In the past twenty years, I have attended many courses, schools, workshops, and sessions privately and community based. None ever taught me or helped me as this integrated program. My husband was able to attend all these sessions with me so helps me greatly now. I have lost some weight, as I should. The greatest point is that my medication is being reevaluated. Again, I thank you all for making my life livable.
I have been a diabetic patient of Dr. William Kaye for several years. I have always had a great respect for Dr. Kaye, although I have not always been very compliant. Recently, Dr. Kaye suggested that I try a new approach to handling my diabetes, a couple of new medications, and meeting with Ines to discuss my medications and how to correctly take them. I met with Monica, Dr. Kaye’s dietician who discussed the correct nutritional habits for a diabetic and a class that lasted from 9 to 5 that pulled everything that I learned all together for me and suddenly made perfect sense. I am very excited about this program that was a must before I could begin my new medication regimen. I am excited to see the results of my effort and I am very grateful to Dr. Kaye for suggesting this to me.
