The method

We specialize in multidisciplinary treatment for diabetes

The Center was established by endocrinologist Dr. Mariela Glandt to help patients with diabetes live optimal lives with their condition.

We strongly believe that you can restore your metabolic health.  By making lifestyle changes it is possible to decrease glucose levels to normal or close to normal, to lose weight, to improve insulin sensitivity, to improve blood pressure and cholesterol, and to improve energy levels.


You can see improvements

A systematic approach that includes the best medicines, nutrition, and daily personal follow-up

We build a personal, tailor-made program for each patient. A team of physicians and specialists monitors your progress, and provides you with ongoing counseling and support. Every morning, patients can send a message to the Center with their status and glucose test results. This message enables immediate response by the staff if necessary.
