Being diagnosed with any condition can be scary and overwhelming. Often leaving you feeling like you just don’t know what you can, or can’t eat anymore and to what extent your condition is influenced by food and your lifestyle.
Diabetes: Did you know working with an Accredited Practising Dietitian can reduce your blood sugar levels by 50% compared to people who have no support from a nutrition specialist?
Heart Disease: Reduce your heart disease risk with healthy eating. Modify your intake to reduce your risk factors of heart disease such as high cholesterol and high blood pressure and fatty liver disease.
Weight Management: Overweight and obesity has risen to an all-time high. Many people know they need to lose weight. A dietitian can help you to plan your meals, discuss portion sizes and set realistic goals for you taking into account your relationship with food.
Mental Health: The link between food and mood has never been clearer. Current statistics indicate that half of all Australians will experience some form of mental illness in their lifetime
