With Dr. Vinton's guidance on better healthier eating choices, prescription medications and 6 to 8 week monitoring consults has helped me achieve healthier "normal/in range" numbers for my triglyceride and A1C levels. In addition, other levels continue to improve as well as weight loss of about 40 lbs from when I started 10 months ago.
