SO Fit Making an Impact

Emerson and I wanted to thank Special Olympics VA for the So-Fit yoga and exercise program and share with you all the difference it has made in Emerson's health.

In July, we went to see his primary care physician, Dr. David Taminger, with results that were remarkable. Not only had he lost a total of 14 pounds, but also had the best lab results this year. For his diabetes the results of his HbA1C, which is a measure of your average blood glucose levels was 1.2 points lower. His fasting glucose level was also within normal limits. His cholesterol levels was also so much lower. Overall he showed remarkable improvements. His doctor sent us a note saying, " Whatever you are doing, please keep up the good work."

This program really worked and I am so glad that we were participants. Not only was it fun and gave Emerson an opportunity to see old friends, it has made a substantial difference in his health.
