The patient has also been exercising regularly by walking for 30 – 40 minutes, 4 days per week and has lost 6 pounds since the last health coaching visit. The patient’s A1C has decreased from 9 to 7 and his blood pressure has also decreased to within his target range. This shows the patient’s dedication to preventing the escalation of his condition.
