Innovative New Program Combines the Latest Nutrition and Behavior Change Research in an Aggressive, Six-Week Curriculum to Reverse Prediabetes
Pasadena, CA—September 21, 2017 – Nutrinic, a lifestyle medicine company, today announced the launch of its flagship program, Nutrinic LIPPD: Lifestyle Intervention Program to Prevent Diabetes. The announcement follows the formation of an Advisory Board of nutrition and medical professionals.
Immediately available nationwide, Nutrinic LIPPD combines education, skill acquisition, personalized nutrition, and dedicated support delivered via a secure, HIPAA-compliant telehealth platform. Drawing on decades of research, the program aims to significantly reduce costs for insurers and integrated care organizations by safely and effectively reversing prediabetes—a chronic condition affecting more than 84 million American adults, according the latest CDC estimate.
Prediabetes is a “canary in the coal mine” precursor condition to serious medical problems like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Effective immediately, Nutrinic LIPPD serves as a reliable referral partner for physicians in the prevention of type 2 diabetes. As LIPPD expands, it will be offered to managed care organizations who want to arrest the rising cost of diabetes care and offer effective disease prevention programs to their members.
“Nutrinic’s founding mission is to reduce the barriers to adopting a disease-fighting plant-based diet,” said Solomon Wolfson, CEO of Nutrinic. “LIPPD was built from the ground up with that principle in mind, combining affordability and accessibility with the latest research in nutrition and behavior change.”
“We’ve developed a program which vastly improves on the prevailing diabetes prevention programs,” added Matt Ruscigno, MPH, RD and Chief Nutrition Officer. “The key difference is that every aspect of our nutrition program has a therapeutic benefit against chronic disease.”
Nutrinic is leading the charge to build a healthcare-integrated evidence-based nutrition therapy to fight and reverse chronic disease, ultimately lowering the costs for insurers and integrated care organizations.
