Your Health Map

A1c Test and What’s Happening Inside Your Body

This is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your family. You are given the opportunity to look at your health from a very unusual perspective. We will be able to take a “snap shot” of what is happening inside your body. Then we will provide you with your individual “health map” so you can clearly see where you are, where you have come from, and in what direction you are heading. With this information, you will be able to determine your risk of developing heart disease and diabetes. More specifically, you will know your likelihood of developing diabetes within a year.

We can prevent diabetes, but we have to catch it before it is too late!

How To Ignite Your Skinny Gene

Personalized Nutritional Assessment Only

Come take a peek inside! The food you are eating may be igniting your taste buds but diminishing the effectiveness of your metabolism. Just like other parts of your body, your metabolism is unique and its ability to function properly depends on multiple factors. (e.g. food, age, gender etc.) We will provide you with an in-depth analysis of what you are, or are not eating, that decreases the performance of your unique metabolism.

Nutritional Counseling Series

Each person has unique needs. We take the time to learn about you, provide you with the nutritional guidance you need to improve your health, and give you the support to achieve long- term success.

During the nutritional counseling series, you will learn how to achieve your best possible metabolism. Our Clinical Nutritionist will conduct an in-depth personalized nutritional assessment to determine how the foods you eat affect your metabolism. We will then provide you with an “inside look” into how small changes in your diet can result in BIG improvements to your overall health. You will then learn how to use your favorite foods to achieve the proper nutritional balance required for your specific needs. After the initial session, you and your nutritional counselor will work together to determine the next best course of action to ensure long-term success with your weight loss and health-based goals.

It’s Not a “Four Letter Word”
The “How to Ignite Your Skinny Gene” series is about lifestyle change; it is not a diet. Chances are diets have not worked for you in the past, and they probably won’t start working for you now. Many fad diets help remove weight quickly, but when you are no longer able to keep up with the unrealistic demands of the diet, the weight comes back even faster.

Stop Dieting and Start Eating:
The “How to Ignite Your Skinny Gene” series is not about dieting; it is about eating. You will learn how to combine the foods you love to improve your metabolism. Every time you eat, the food helps to provide you with energy or affects your metabolism. You will learn how to eat so that your taste buds and waistline will thank you.

Igniting Your Skinny Gene and Diabetes Prevention:
The “How to Ignite Your Skinny Gene” series helps you to maximize your metabolism. Having a healthy metabolism not only helps you lose weight and keep it off, but it also plays an important role in diabetes prevention. Diabetes exists when the body is not able to properly metabolize sugar. When your metabolism is functioning at full capacity, it is able to burn the sugar found in food as energy. If not burned, excess sugar is left in the blood and may cause prediabetes, heart disease, strokes, blindness and several other health-related conditions.

Additional Information

A1c Test

“Clearly see where you are, where you have come from, and in what direction you are heading.”
Using only a single drop of blood, which can be just a finger prick, an A1c provides you with a snap shot of how well your body’s metabolism has been functioning over the last 90 days. It represents your average daily blood sugar during the last 3 months.

If you do not know your A1c by heart, or know where you can easily look it up, you should order an A1c now or ask your physician to order you an A1c test.

Our non-profit organization provides the AccuBase A1c™ Test Kit at a fraction of the price of other lab-based A1c tests. The AccuBase A1c™ is a FDA approved over-the-counter diagnostic test kit developed for monitoring long-term blood glucose levels in individuals with diabetes or are at risk of developing diabetes.

This test does not require a prescription from a physician, and it allows individuals to test their A1c levels in the comfort and convenience of their own home. An individual collects a non-fasting, finger stick blood sample at-home, and mail it in to a designated testing laboratory for analysis. The results will be sent to the address of your choice (your home and/or your physician). The J. Moss Foundation will then follow-up with you, to answer and help guide you through any needed next steps.
