A Dietitian investigates medical issues like a doctor, but treats their patient with diet and lifestyle adjustments. In an initial consultation, a lot of care is taken gathering comprehensive medical and diet history and from there, a specific and tailored meal plan and nutrition advice is created.
We recognise the need to address the current national obesity epidemic. Our team of professionals closely monitor patient weight and Body Mass Index (BMI) and seek to promote healthier life-styles through weight management involving healthy diet and regular exercise. Our team is also aware of the prevalence of Vitamin D deficiency within the community and closely monitors levels recommending supplements where required. We refer our patients to Dieticians and Exercise Physiologists where necessary.
