Weight Loss Story

To my great consternation, I received a type 2 diabetes diagnosis at age 40. The disease runs in my family: my father, brother, and sister all lost their lives to it before reaching retirement age. I took my diagnosis seriously, and through a combination of lifestyle changes and medication I was able to keep my symptoms under control for a decade. However, as time wore on the disease became unmanageable. I sought specialized treatment at the renowned Mayo Clinic, but even they were powerless to bring the disease under control. In 2013, I decided that drastic measures were required. I began looking into gastric bypass surgery. At the time, I weighed 240 lbs at 5 feet and 6 inches tall, so I was a good candidate for the procedure. The surgery facilitated the loss of 60 lbs–which I have kept off since–and my diabetes was not only brought under control, but it was also reversed completely! Sadly, my deliverance from the disease was not permanent. Despite keeping my weight in check and maintaining healthy lifestyle changes, I began to experience symptoms of pre-diabetes in 2020. In response I began taking semaglutide, and it helped me to lose an additional 40 lbs and reverse my diabetes again! Thanks to semaglutide, my weight has decreased to a healthy 138 lbs, and I feel and look better at age 66 than I did at 40! My quality of life is the best it’s been in ages. My energy has returned, and I am able to exercise 3 to 5 times weekly at moderate intensity. I no longer suffer from diabetes, high cholesterol, and sleep apnea. And, after four years of retirement, I was able to return to work doing the job I love: preventing and curing diseases. It is my sincere hope that semaglutide can do for you what it has done for me. Please make an appointment ASAP. A better life is one phone call away! In Good Health, Dr. Bernard Parham Sr., MD Board Certified Internal Medicine
