Providing specialized assistance for diabetics

Over 90% of Canadians with diabetes type 2 have excess weight. Those who suffer from this condition know, there is much more involved than just obtaining normal blood sugars. Our dietitian, nutritionist, physiotherapist, personal trainer, nurse, and physician can provide specialized ongoing assistance with nutrition, lower leg assessment, exercise prescription, weight loss medications, and behavioral change support.

Prescribe medications when medically necessary

We know we aren't the only weight management program out there and you are looking at all your options. Our clinic offers multiple modalities to treat obesity, from lifestyle behavioural modifications, OPTIFAST program, dietitian services, exercise programs, and prescription  medications for weight management. There are currently three branded  medications  ( SAXENDA, CONTRAVE & XENICAL)  along with the new agent Semaglutide, approved by Heath Canada for the treatment of Overweight and  Obesity. They are recommended ONLY as part of a weight management plan. During your initial comprehensive medical assessment, Dr. Soto  will discuss with you  if any of these medications are suitable for you.
