I was diagnosed with PCOS in my very early 20’s.
I barely managed to keep my symptoms regulated with the help of hormonal contraceptives. I really struggled during and after each pregnancy (I have 5 children) with weight, mood fluctuations, and managing my blood sugar.
In early 2016 I decided that it was time that I make my health a priority. I began seeing a primary care doctor who was extremely knowledgeable in women’s health. I became aware of the status of my condition and also learned that there are steps that I could take to manage it.
I was referred, during my search for the best, to Daphne for nutritional counseling. Based on the recommendation, I decided to make the drive over to Lafayette to see for myself if there was something that she could do for me. Daphne took the time to assess my unique condition in light of her wide range of knowledge of nutrition and how it interacts with disease processes and helped me to develop a workable plan. I am happy to say that I continue to follow this very realistic plan.
I am very pleased with the outcome of treatment. My recent blood work shows a marked improvement. I have achieved and maintained my ideal weight. I have greatly reduced anxiety and mood fluctuations and I feel much calmer overall. My skin has cleared up. I rarely experience bloating and other GI symptoms anymore and my energy level has increased.
It turns out that a diet rich in nutrition that is right for you, does make a difference!
I’ve lost 30 lbs on the parameters you set for me.
My last test for blood sugar came back within parameters of normal (with help of diet and glucophage). And….I’M PREGNANT! I cant thank you enough for all the help you have given me in educating me about food. I now eat smarter. I truly do not think that I would have been able to get pregnant and get my health in check without your help. My sincerest Thank you!
“Daphne is the first dietician I’ve ever met who
genuinely listens to ME
instead of a BMI chart or government food pyramid. I feel worlds better from where I was before I started working with her.”
You are my favorite dietitian ever.
You have a way of working with people and not putting them down about their weight, initially that is what I expected; criticism. Surprisingly I met a very, intelligent, sweet, and patient beautiful woman
She listens to you.
That’s hard to fine in a dr. Thanks so much for that.”
“Daphne is so knowledgeable and has helped me a tremendous amount!
Nutrition is a journey and I am very happy to have her as my guide.
I can’t say enough positive things about my experiences meeting with her and working on the issues I have. She is a blessing!”
I am genuinely impressed with your insight and intuition.
I had an appointment with my diabetes doctor this morning and my A1C was so good they took me off of 1 of my 3 diabetes medicines.
In addition I lost another 5 lbs so I am down 55lbs since I started. I wanted you to know how truly grateful I am for the blessing you are to me and my family. Thanks for your commitment, passion and for making a difference in our lives.
“I am very grateful for the help and guidance I am receiving.
I’m hoping to get the needed knowledge I need to learn how to live a life without the digestive issues I’ve had for years. There may be limitations but it will be worth it being able to live without such chronic digestive issues!!!”
“I love going to see Daphne!
In addition to being super friendly and knowledgeable, she is insightful, encouraging, and helps hold me accountable without being judgmental.”
Daphne is a caring yet professional person.
She helped me with a gastro problem by steering me to a medical test that confirmed her suspicions about my issue. I was given a diet to follow by my doctor that was both subtle and complex. Daphne was instrumental with simplifying the diet so that I could use it in real life. I don’t think I could have done it without her.
