Food & nutrition is a part of everyday life.
We know what we eat effects our health no matter what age we are.
No matter whether we are well or have a condition such as cancer, obesity, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome or another.
We are surrounded by information about food & nutrition but often we need help to make the right food choices to maximise our health and know what is fact from fiction.
This is where a Dietitian can help provide evidence based factual advice.
Being underweight can contribute to a weakened immune system, fragile bones, low mood & feeling tired. Dietitians can help with nutritional support.
We are trained in weight management techniques that encompass long-term lifestyle strategies that promote healthy eating and daily physical activity.
Dietitians can provide advice & tips to help you make the best choices about your health and wellbeing.
Dietitians can advise you on diet for type II diabetes, focusing on how to balance your intake to support blood glucose level control.
Malnutrition or poor nutrition can be a result of a disease such as COPD where you are not getting enough nutrients to compensate for your illness. A Dietitian can support you to make dietary changes to improve your nutritional status.
