Get a buddy!

Buddy programs can work for weight loss.  Many overweight and obese patients have diabetes (even if they don’t know it!)

For diabetics, a buddy program (“peer mentors”) improves control of diabetes.  I am an Adjunct Professor in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.  Researchers there recently discussed this work in the video below:

Dr John Ellis MD

Board-certified anesthesiologist, with expertise in cardiovascular anesthesia and the implications of obesity and sleep apnea in anesthesia. See for professional information. Dr. Ellis has used the strategies in here to: (1) lose 120 lbs over 18 months, (2) stop all antihypertensive medicines, and (3) no longer need CPAP treatment for sleep apnea.
