( CNN) It happened by accident.

Kathryn Hutchinson, a 52 -year-old retired teacher, was accompanying her father to a doctor’s appointment last year when medical doctors recommended that Hutchinson make an appointment of her own.

Hutchinson was diagnosed with prediabetes at the time and was obese, with severe arthritis and a history of depression. Her father’s physician knew an endocrinologist who could help her.
