I am very thankful for Dr Uma for helping and guiding me through to reach my goal . I got diagnosed with high A1C and with my weight being heavy as well it added to the diagnosis . When I met Dr Uma she gave me baby steps to follow introduced me calorie counting how to manage the diet for the day. I was easily able to follow them and every time I improved new steps were given . In about a year I was able to reduce close to 30 pounds and be off from one of my medication for diabetes . The pounds came off gradually and steadily . I have been able to incorporate the changes to my food diet for lifetime now . I can eat all types of food with moderation now . So finally I had reached my goal but still have to go further for a few pounds here and there . Thanks to Dr Uma for continuous input and suggestions .
I met Uma when I was pregnant n was looking for an Indian dietitians who can take care of my diet as I was struggling with gestational diabetes. She understood my needs well n kept on me track.
After my delivery I went to postpartum depression along with weight gain. I did meet her again but was very low on spirit. She motivated me a lot n still I remember her one sentence which changed my look towards my self . It was " until u don't learn to love urself no one loves you" . From there it sparked in me and ready to shed my extra kgs. I did follow her diet for one month I saw result. I got more motivated but due to COVID in between I could not continue my journey with her but those words were there to keep me pushing .I kept on my weight loss journey with ups and down . currently I am very close to my dream weight and a very confident girl.
Starting weight 182 lbs n current is 140lbs
I m putting here my words to let know others how amazing Uma is.
I would say this was her n her words which kept me going on .
Thankful and very grateful to u Uma.
I reached out to Mrs. Uma Sridhar after trying a few dietitians in vain. I found her frank, open and straight forward. We liked seeing her. She made us feel encouraged and hopeful. Uma was patiently explaining how food science works in our body and that was very helpful us. She is easy to talk and sincere. Her guidance regarding nutrition was very helpful. Thank you Uma!
Roughly 2 years back, I reached out to Ms. Uma Sridhar in desperation. My A1C had hit a new high in the upper values of the pre-diabetes range and my weight was also an all-time high. My regular physician warned that I would be diabetic in few years if I did nothing and recommended reducing the weight by 10 %. An easy thing to say but didn’t tell me how to do it. This is where Ms. Uma came to my rescue and I am so glad that I met her.
My only goal was to reduce the odds of becoming a diabetic which I communicated in the first meeting itself. After listening to my food eating pattern, lifestyle, family history she developed a customized diet plan to reduce the weight from Overweight to Normal range. She patiently explained the rationale for that diet and how that would help me. She was confident that I would not only lose weight but would be able to reduce the A1C eventually. I honestly didn’t believe that as I was always a pre-diabetic.
In one month I lost substantial weight and in 3 months I lost 22 lbs. officially moving to Normal from Overweight category. My initial A1C test results didn’t show the same improvement but Ms. Uma encouraged me to stick to the diet and to give it more time. I am happy to say that A1C values eventually dropped to normal range and for over an year now, I am not in the prediabetic range!!
I am very happy to recommend Uma to anyone who is a prediabetic, diabetic or for any one who needs weight management.
Uma's advice regarding my nutrition has helped me tremendously in losing 28 lbs in 3 months, lowering my sugar, cholesterol levels and making me feel many years younger. Between nutrition management, exercise and Yoga that I do, I firmly believe that Uma's guidance regarding my nutrition has been the most significant in restoring my health.
I had recently been diagnosed with pre-diabetes when I went to see Uma. She set up a low carb diet for me that was based on the kinds of food I like to eat. After a few months of following the plan, I took an A1C test and it came back normal. I would recommend Uma because she is knowledgeable and invested in patient success.
I had been to doctor after doctor for over a year and a half with no relief from constant nausea and insomnia, and no diagnosis that worked. By the time I found Ms. Sridhar I was too weak to work or eat much beyond liquids and had found no answers.
She was so encouraging, incredibly knowledgeable, and very thorough; I hadn't felt as heard by any doctor I'd been to. She asked questions that had never come up before, and walked me through every aspect of my individualized plan. Within just a few weeks of following her plan the nausea was significantly reduced. Within a few months it was entirely gone, and the insomnia was almost gone.
It's been almost two years since I saw Ms. Sridhar, and I have been sticking to the long term version of her diet plan since then. Far from simply being nausea/insomnia-free now, I get sick less than I ever have before, I have more energy, and my mood is more stable and positive than I can remember.
I went to see Uma last April after finding out I was pre-diabetic. She was able to tailor a diet specifically for me - and she taught me all about eating for my needs. I have lost 40 pounds- and kept it off! Plus she follows up on how I am doing. My A1C level is also normal- down almost 10 points. Thanks Uma- you changed my life! And I got to buy all new clothes!
The services I have received at Nutrition Consult, LLC have been very helpful. I have been able to use the tools and skills learned to make better choices when planning meals and selecting healthy snacks. Doing so has resulted in better sleep habits, more energy throughout the day and progressive weight management. I'm happier and my family and I are eating healthier.
You are a great person and a nutritionist . You take your time to explain everything not in a rush at all. You do call and e-mail to check on me as well. It was so personal that I loved it.
I would like to highly recommend Nutrition Consult as a place to go as I found Mrs Uma's in depth knowledge of the variety of foods
is very valuable and it really helped me understand how you can approach issue with an alternative to medicine. Please note this is not treatment for your diabetes, this is way to approach the deficiency in an alternative way so that you can control and still enjoy the food you eat and over the period of time you can get rid of the deficiency naturally.
The service received at Dr. Uma's office was excellent. She personalized all I could eat, including quantities and calories. It helped me a lot to understand not only what I was eating but how I can change it. She is not in a hurry to finish and answers all the doubts or questions you may have. I really recommend her as a great nutritionist who cares about the patient.
