Diabetes & Weight Loss Support

At Structure House, our wellness packages are completely customizable. You get to choose the treatment focus, length of stay, and additional support that’s right for you.

What Is The Diabetes Module?

Receive diabetes support and weight loss programming in our diabetes management program.

Diabetes support is available to any Structure House participants with Type 2 Diabetes, pre-Diabetes, or impaired fasting glucose or insulin resistance. Individuals can self-enroll in the Diabetes (no physician referral required), or we are happy to accept a referral from a provider and will coordinate communication with existing diabetes providers before, during, and after treatment as needed and desired.

We understand how challenging this disease can be to manage, in part because so much of diabetes treatment is lifestyle-based, including modifying eating patterns and increasing daily physical activity. Our diabetes support is intended to help individuals understand factors affecting their glucose control, achieve and maintain glucose stability, address barriers to diabetes self-management adherence, and identify optimal medication regimens. Participants receive the complete wellness programming for healthy behavioral weight management while also engaging in specialized individual appointments with our team to improve glucose control and learn how to manage diabetes effectively at home.

What Are the Benefits?

Explore the benefits of our weight loss program for diabetics.

Published results from our diabetes programming show meaningful improvements across several indicators of diabetes and cardiovascular health, including reductions in fasting glucose, hemoglobin A1c, cholesterol, triglycerides, and body mass index. Additionally, nearly two-thirds of participants were able to reduce or eliminate at least one diabetes medication after four weeks of treatment (Pells JJ, Stout AL, Rodriguez-Diaz MM, Quigley CA, Musante GJ. Brief Intensive Lifestyle Intervention Leads to Rapid Diabetes Improvements. Amer J Lifestyle Med 2012; 6: 178).
