CHIP gives new lease on life

THANKS to the Coronary Health Improvement Project (CHIP), Jacqui Murray of Glenore Grove has a brand new life.

In just four weeks Jacqui lost almost six kilograms in weight and her insulin use dropped from 88 to 30 units a day.

Among other improvements, Jacqui’s overall cholesterol and blood pressure have dropped and she has been able to cease her antidepressant medication.

“I haven’t felt this good in years,” Jacqui said.

“I actually feel fantastic.”

Jacqui was one of the 23 participants in the most recent CHIP program to be held in the Lockyer Valley.

The program has been very successful in the past.

It is a scientifically proven health improvement program based on making simple lifestyle changes to gain optimum health improvement.

The most recent CHIP program was the fourth to be held in the Lockyer Valley, with another planned to run in February.

For more information on CHIP and the upcoming program in February, please call Gavin Dagg at the Laidley Hospital on 5466 8100 or email him at gavin_dagg@health.qld.gov.au.
