Not only is Dr. Woo an expert and board certified in endocrinology, he is credentialed by the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine.  He is also one of a few physicians in Mississippi who is a Certified Diabetes Educator, a health care professional who is trained in teaching people with diabetes how to manage their disease better.

• The American Board of Lifestyle Medicine has granted Dr. Woo the title of Diplomat and Certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician based on education, implementation and certification in lifestyle medicine.

• The Diabetes and Endocrine Institute has been recognized by the ADA as an Educational Center for the last 6 years consecutively.
• Dr. Woo personally received an award as a nationwide finalist for Diabetes Educator of the Year at the National American Association of Diabetic Educators meeting in August 2010, recognizing his commitment, efforts, and passion in helping his patients with diabetes lead healthier lives.

Diabetes is not just an individual’s condition to manage; it has proven to be a disease of entire families. The philosophies of our programs can be utilized by individuals who don’t necessarily have the condition. Our clinic encourages everyone to be “metabolically fit”. Metabolic fitness means maintaining leveled blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar across the board for extended periods of time.

Dr. Wayne Woo and his wife, Pat Woo, help patients understand how healthy decisions go hand in hand with medical expertise when it comes to treating diseases.  The clinic’s unique approach to treatment encourages patients to make changes in their meal plans, their attitude, and their expectations. Combined with Dr. Woo’s solid medical expertise, people with diabetes in Mississippi are offered “hope, healing, and health.”

Classes

• These classes offer health tips and educate those with diabetes on the different ways to make positive lifestyle changes to manage their diabetes the best way possible. Unfortunately, because of the pandemic, classes have been temporarily suspended and we will restart the sessions when it is safe to do so. Please check back for updates!

In general, non-starchy vegetables are lower in carbohydrates and calories than starchy vegetables, and their high fiber content can help steady blood sugar and slow the absorption of other carbs you may be eating with them.

There's no reason to avoid starchy vegetables like potatoes and corn—they're packed with fiber and nutrients too! Just be sure to count starchy vegetables as carb servings when calculating insulin and medication. Consult your physician before making any major diet changes.

Happy 4th of July to you.

China has many cooking methods, but there are really 8 main Chinese cooking styles. Dr. Woo and Ms. Pat visited Chengdu, where they are widely known for their Sichuan cooking styles. Their dishes are known for their spicy flavor, and the famous numbing essence of the Sichuan peppercorn. They are also known for their hotpots, in which various ingredients are simmered in a delicious broth!
