From a young age, weight had been a struggle for Andrea. She tried diet after diet, but always found herself unable to keep the weight off. It became a vicious cycle. As Andrea got older, her concerns about being overweight became less about her appearance and more about her health. She grew concerned about diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease.
So, she turned to her long-time Harvard Vanguard primary care physician, Dr. Patricia Montaperto, at our Chelmsford practice for advice on what to do next. Dr. Montaperto recommended that she see health coach Heidi Duskey. With Heidi’s help and encouragement, Andrea set goals for herself: to be a more active person, to lose weight and to stop taking blood pressure medicine.
Watch here to see how far Andrea has come and to learn how she got to where she is today.
