Scott Loses Weight, Lowers Blood Pressure and Cholesterol

While participating in a health checkup at Marathon Health @ South Burlington through my employer benefits with City of South Burlington Public Works, I learned I had high blood pressure and cholesterol. With the exception of being overweight, I was unaware of my numbers.

I met with Nurse Practitioner Christina Tourangeau. She explained my results and helped me start an insulin-resistant diet. Since March, my weight has gone from 297 to 275 – a loss of 22 pounds and I have lost 2.6 inches off my waist!

Other improvements include:

  • Cholesterol – 218 to 175
  • LDL – 150 to 129
  • HDL – 39 to 34
  • Triglycerides – 146 to 59
  • Tc/HDL – 5.6 to 5.1
  • And lastly, my BP has dropped from 160 to 120

I am active and extremely happy with the results so far with Christina’s guidance. At 62, I feel better and my goal is to get down to 250 pounds. I would (and have already) strongly suggest that my fellow employees utilize the resources of Marathon Health. Christina has been informative, supportive, non-judgmental, and is always positive, upbeat and encouraging! — Scott Jacobs, Marathon Health Member
