When I first met Steve Freed 22 years ago, it was because of my desire to get pharmacists involved with a nutritional multilevel marketing company. Although I was a pharmacist, I did not really have an interest or passion for diabetes like I do now. The company I was involved with had a mixed soluble fiber product to help with weight loss by making you feel fuller, and it even had patents for lowering serum cholesterol and glucose levels. I had started taking the product, and when Steve joined me, we used the product three times a day to lose over 150 pounds between us. The difficulty in maintaining this was the three times a day thing. I would constantly forget to mix the drink when I was at a restaurant or skipped a meal, and often I did not have time to wait the 15 minutes that the manufacturer recommended waiting before eating.

Now there is an easier long-lasting way to keep your patients full and eating less; to find out what we are talking about, be sure to click on item 3 to learn how balloons can be the answer.



We can make a difference!
