Procedures / Treatments

  • Cholesterol Management A treatment plan designed by a healthcare provider to lower a patient’s cholesterol level. A plan includes recommendations for improved lifestyle, diet, weight, and physical activity. Other risk factors are also assessed that can affect a patient’s cholesterol level. In some cases, cholesterol-lowering medications may also provide additional benefit to managing a healthy cholesterol level. Cholesterol management also involves decreasing the LDL cholesterol (“bad” cholesterol) and making sure HDL (“good” cholesterol) is at recommended levels. Patients and healthcare professionals work together to help improve and maintain heart health and reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease and stroke.
  • Diabetes Education Third party training and support for a patient's diabetes self-management and overall health.
  • High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) High blood pressure is another word for the condition. Blood pressure measures the force against artery walls as the heart pumps blood through the body.
  • Insulin Resistance Insulin resistance is the name given when the body’s cells don’t respond properly to the hormone insulin. Insulin resistance is the driving factor leading to type 2 diabetes and prediabetes.
  • Medical Weight Loss A decrease in body weight/mass resulting from voluntary (diet, exercise) or involuntary (illness) circumstances. Medical weight loss is monitored by a specialist trained in Obesity Medicine.
  • Metabolic Syndrome

    Metabolic syndrome is not a disease in itself but a combination of risk factors that include:

    • High blood pressure
    • High blood sugar
    • Unhealthy cholesterol levels
    • Excess abdominal fat
  • Post-Bariatric Weight Management It’s not easy to maintain a healthy weight after bariatric surgery. Our weight loss experts help patients keep the weight off and establish healthy habits.
  • Weight Loss for Osteoarthritis Extra weight puts pressure on joints while extra body fat increases inflammation associated with osteoarthritis. A medical weight loss specialist can help patients control weight to their improve symptoms.

Interests

Kelsey Bird loves working with patients to develop personalized treatment plans and empowering them to make holistic and sustainable lifestyle changes, address the root cause of their symptoms, and cultivate a good relationship to food and themselves.

She’s also passionate about the medical use of the Ketogenic diet especially related to treatment of epilepsy, diabetes, insulin resistance, and weight management. She expanded her education in the ketogenic diet to help manage her own epilepsy and uses this experience to help others with a wide range of medical conditions achieve a better quality of life through diet.

Kelsey’s other interests are spending time with her husband and four young children. She loves swimming, kayaking, hiking and spending weekends in the mountains. She enjoys learning about nutrition and experimenting in her kitchen to create delicious food that nourishes the body.
