Success Story: Averted Progression of Disease

HiRes_MANPatient: a 37 year old male

Diagnosis: The patient has a diagnosis of hyperlipidemia.

Medical History: The patient has a history of hyperlipidemia with poor compliance for health.

MCM Intervention: Since enrolling in the DM program the patient has received education and surveillance regarding reducing saturated fat, limiting portion sizes, and daily exercise. The patient was accustomed to eating fried foods and red meat multiple times per week as well as second helpings. In addition he did not exercise routinely and was sedentary at his job. This resulted in weight gain and elevated cholesterol which put him at risk for heart disease. The patient has eliminated second helpings, fried foods, and has limited red meat to less than twice per week. Moreover, he is exercising five days per week at a moderate pace and has lost eleven pounds. Maintaining focus on short term, realistic goals has enabled the patient to avert the progression of his condition.
