Dr. Tro’s Medical Weight Loss & Direct Primary Care is proud to use the new Keto Mojo GK+ Blood Glucose & Ketone Meter in our office. This state-of-the-art device will interface with the EMR Elation Health system, allowing our staff to seamlessly view patient’s ketone data. The Bluetooth-enabled meter gives patients the option to share their readings with our office without the added step of remembering to send it. This automated process makes it easier for our patients, and furthers our commitment to top-tier remote-health management.
The office has been utilizing a remote-health strategy for years, including digital body composition scales, heart monitors, blood pressure cuffs and continuous glucose monitors, but until now, ketone readings had to be done in office or via patients self-reporting.
“After testing several devices we decided to move to the Keto Mojo exclusively. It’s a real game-changer, and will let us monitor patients’ progress from afar — something we have come to value even more in the wake of COVID-19 concerns. I’m proud to be one of the first offices using this system for our patients,” says Dr. Tro.
Amy Eiges is a health coach and reformed chronic dieter who is passionate about helping others recover from the diet-binge-gain-shame cycle she struggled with for years. Since discovering a ketogenic and low-carb lifestyle, she has lost over 200 pounds and has both reversed pre-diabetes and resolved lifelong depression. “When I was just starting out, facing 200 pounds to lose seemed insurmountable, and the idea I would ever be where I am now was unfathomable. Know this: I am not extraordinary. I just finally got the right advice, put one foot in front of the other and didn’t look back. I know now that it can be done, but after battling this war for 40 years I had lost hope that it was really, truly possible. I am living proof that it is.”
