Shannon McGinn is a National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC) and a Center for Disease Control (CDC)-trained lifestyle coach who provides effective guidance, support, and behavior change coaching grounded in the CDC's Prevent T2 (Type 2 Diabetes) Curriculum.
Diabetes=focused Lifestyle Coaching may effectively help those with prediabetes slow or reverse risk of developing T2 diabetes, help people with T2 diabetes maximize the positive effects of treatment, and/or potentially reduce the need for medication.
Creating Momentum's Diabetes Prevention Coaching Program is for you if:
(1) You have been diagnosed with Prediabetes (ex: A1C is between 5.7-6.4%, fasting glucose is 110-125 mg/dl)
(2) You have been previously diagnosed with gestational diabetes (diabetes during pregnancy)
(3) Received a high-risk result (5 or higher) on the Prediabetes Risk Test. Note: A low score on this test does not mean you are not at risk for Prediabetes but a high score on this test does indicate you are at risk.
Lifestyle Coaching aims to help people with Prediabetes or those at risk of developing T2 diabetes stop or delay their progression towards T2 Diabetes.
Lifestyle Coaching alone cannot replace treatment for Diabetes. Once you have been diagnosed with T2 Diabetes, treatment by a medical professional is required. However lifestyle coaching should be part of any effective wellness plan. Lifestyle Coaching can help with adherence and increase the efficacy of any treatment plan designed to help manage diabetes.
