When we think of Men's Health, it is often associated with "Beer Gut" or "Fat Guts" or many other negative connotations. The reality is men also suffer from a range of diet-related problems. Unfortunately, men are less likely to seek expert help but ignore symptoms and suffer in silence.
Our dietitians are specialists and realise that men's needs and food preferences may differ from our female patients. Because of this, we offer personalised care for men that men can provide. Male nutrition experts form less than 5% of our profession, so we can uniquely offer a male perspective and male-specific solutions.
Changes to diet can put type 2 diabetes into remission. Changing the mix of foods and how you eat can improve blood sugar levels to the point where blood sugar levels are back to normal.
The catch is that no one size fits all way of eating will put diabetes into remission. For that reason, we develop a custom diet for each patient that fits their lifestyle and diabetes-related goals. And when we say remission, we mean no need for daily blood sugar testing and no medications.
Considering or started weight loss medication or surgery? While effective means to lose weight for some people. They are not enough for weight management in the long term. Without the support of a dietitian, more than 70% of patients who have weight loss surgery fail. The number is even higher for people using weight loss medications.
We work with patients using motivational interviewing techniques to make the necessary changes to manage weight in the long term. Long-term weight management is about behaviours, and that is where we work with patients to create their new normal.
High blood pressure is a significant risk factor for heart attack, stroke, kidney disease or annoying symptoms like headaches and poor sleep. Fortunately, changes to your diet are very effective in reducing blood pressure.

We work with you to make subtle changes unique to your diet to lower your blood pressure and keep it down.
