There is a rising tide of type 2 diabetes and complications of obesity in Nova Scotia. Obesity and type 2 diabetes are not due to problems with will power or moral failings. They are not due to an individual’s fault. Further, if we are offered the proper support and guidance, we can shift toward a healthy pattern of eating, improve sleep, increase fitness, and improve our metabolic health and quality of life. Our health care system needs to be reoriented in order to support patients in their journey toward wellness. This approach, integrated with providing access to the full stack of medical and surgical options, is the reason Valley Metabolic Health was born.
