Specializations & Services
We take a tailored approach to dietary medication and exercise management. TVMM Patients will receive tailored medication, exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle techniques in order to achieve their long-term weight management goals and improve their quality of life.

Individualized Eating Plans
We understand the importance of individualized eating plans. What might work for one person, may not work for the next. Our team takes an expert approach and figures out what eating plan will work best with your body. Individualized eating plans map out a daily routine, enhance healthy food choices, and help you meet your weight goals.
Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes. These conditions include increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels. We create a custom plan for your diet, exercise, and medications with your long-term metabolic health in mind.
Pre-Diabetes and Diabetes must be treated differently. It is important to not take a cookie cutter approach concerning nutrition and meeting one’s weight goals. No matter where you are at in the process, TVMM looks at your metabolic health to develop custom solutions for pre-diabetes as well as type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
Ketogenic eating is a term for choosing a low-carb diet to get more calories from protein and fat and less from carbohydrates. We will help you cut back most on the carbs that are easy to digest, like sugar, soda, pastries, and white bread and eat foods that promote metabolic health.
Nutrition is at the core of your metabolic health. We create a custom nutrition plan for all of our patients that they actually want to follow. This includes tips on where to find good food and recipes that will help you acheive long-term weight and metabolic health goals.
When you have hormone imbalance you have too little or too much or a particular hormone. This can throw your body off and make it difficult to obtain your desired weight and health goals. Our team will assess your hormone levels and help find the right balance.
Managing the number of calories you burn and managing how many you take in are equally important. Treasure Valley Metabolic Medicine offers customized care to help patients find managable ways to exercise. This includes home plans and lifestyle recommendations to help maintain your metabolic health.
When it comes to improving your health, having the most accurate data is important. That’s why our team uses Inbody Technology to calculate your body’s fat and muscle percentage with extreme precision.

“I see Katy and Kirsten for weight management. They are both very knowledgeable in their field. I enjoy working with both of them. They have set me up to succeed! The hours of operation are great as well. Highly recommend Treasure Valley Metabolic Medicine!
Update after months of care:Shawna Daletski
I have been working with Katy and Kirsten at TVMM for about 8 months now and have seen a weight loss of 27 pounds. Prior to working with the team I was unaware of what healthy and maintainable weight loss was. I now know that quick results don’t last. I’m shooting for about a 1lb loss a week which is exactly what I have achieved, YAY! I was reminded that weight loss takes effort, but if you follow their guidance backed by science it takes all the mystery out of it. I have gained an education and now feel confident that I can make smart decisions myself.”
“Losing weight without feeling hungry … who knew!? I have been working with Kirsten for about 16 weeks now (since Mid Sep) and have seen a total weight loss of 20lb! What’s even more exciting is that I have not felt starved or deprived this entire time and, ironically, as I loose more and more weight and consequently gain more and more muscle from my resistance training, I am allowed more calories and increased macros!!! I think I was a bit unaware of how much effort weight loss is; gaining weight is so easy and passive, I was out of touch with how much effort would really be required of me. I was discouraged because I have always eaten relatively healthy and have been an avid gym goer with weightlifting built into my routine, but I wasn’t seeing the results I was desiring. Kirsten helped me understand that even though I was living a healthy lifestyle it may not have been best geared towards my body and I was lacking that tailored approach. I will say I have really dedicated myself to the process and eaten exactly to her macros she gave me, when I say exactly, I mean within 5 grams, but it really has made all the difference. I also am really committed to my lifting routine and push myself in the gym. I can see why weight training is so crucial as I build muscle I can eat more calories to support that muscle all while continuing to lose wt. More calories over time has increased my food freedom and bettered my relationship with food. My other major take away is the rate of healthy weight loss, who knew 1 to 2lb per week was a healthy goal and I really shouldn’t be shooting for anything greater as faster weight loss isn’t likely maintainable. During this process, I have redefined what the term “sustainable” means and now know it implies how I will be eating and working out 5 to 10 years from now, not 2-3 months. My biggest piece of advice: BUY INTO THE INFORMATION AND DO AS SHE SAYS, she and Katy are willing to individualize your approach but what they preach works if you just listen and apply yourself.”Katrina Carr
“Katy is a total GEEK about diabetes. We all have something we are good at, Katy is great at treating diabetes. Mine went uncontrolled for what seems like at least 5 years. Katy not only understood she helped. She got it under control, worked through my insurance issues and now I am much healthier. Diabetes controlled!!!! Thank you, Katy!!!”Rich Nesbitt
“So glad I found TVMM! Katy is thorough and on top of her game. I am definitely achieving my health and wellness goals because of the personal approach TVMM takes to metabolic medicine.”Erin Strong
“The team at TVMM has helped me begin a life of health freedom. They have designed a plan for success when others have just told me I was overweight and to “lose a few pounds or fifty”. Katy and Kirsten have helped determine why I struggled and how to succeed! I’m forever grateful for their insight and caring spirits. Thank you.”Sarah Dewey
