As an internal medicine specialist at Scripps Clinic, David Clayton, MD, focuses on nutrition and exercise for the treatment and prevention of disease. Seventy-one-year-old Mark Segars of San Diego can attest to the effectiveness of Dr. Clayton’s program to address diabetes and high blood pressure.


The Mira Mesa man has lost more than 40 pounds and is as healthy as ever.


“You don’t have to have diabetes or high blood pressure,” Segars told the UT San Diego in a story that appeared over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.


“I see people who are younger than me who are having a hard time. They walk like they’re old. I’m walking the same as I did when I was 40,” Segars said.
