If you are 13-18 years old, a patient at MHP Pediatrics, and want to learn
how to make healthier food choices, then this program is for you! Participants
in our pilot program will wear a glucose monitor that adheres to the skin.
This monitor records a continuous measurement of blood glucose (sugar)
and displays these measurements on a smartphone. Users get instant feedback
on how the foods they eat impact their body’s blood glucose response.
By learning how their body reacts to their food choices, participants
will begin to select healthier options, which could assist in weight loss.
There is no cost to participate in the program. If you are interested,
please contact Dr. Paula Gustafson at 317-398-7337.
