Dietetics

Why see a Dietitian?

Whether you are trying to achieve a better lifestyle, improve your health and fitness, or simply maintain your current state of well being, our dietitian can analyse your current diet and nutrient intake and help you meet your nutritional needs. We can work with you to help you understand and plan correct eating habits and also monitor your progress.

At our clinic we can provide dietary advice in a wide range of areas, including:
healthy eating
sports nutrition
fussy eating
food allergies and food intolerances
detoxification
and develop specialised plans for those with diabetes, coeliac disease, high cholesterol, irritable bowel syndrome and other medical conditions.

Not only can our dietitian help you wade through a plethora of dense and often confusing information, they will throw in a measure of common sense to help you make the changes you need to improve your health.

Understanding the nutritional content of the food you eat (as well as knowing how to decipher food labels) can radically change your life and help you stay on track to reach your goals.

Our dietary clinic is available every second Tuesday from 10am to 5pm.

Our health outreach services are funded by the NSW Rural Doctors Network under the Department of Health’s Medical Outreach Indigenous Chronic Disease Program and the Visiting Optometrists Scheme.

How can a Dietitian Help?

Dietitians are experts in food and nutrition. They provide guidance for people who may be affected by health conditions such as diabetes, overweight and obesity, cancer, heart disease, renal disease, gastro-intestinal diseases and food allergies. A dietitian can also help even if you are feeling well by ensuring you maintain your health and reduce the risk of developing chronic disease.

When should you see a Dietitian?

There are many triggers that may lead to a person benefiting from the support of a dietitian, including:
poor food intake, poor appetite, or difficulty preparing or eating food
a recently diagnosed chronic disease
concern that a chronic illness is not being managed
significant changes in weight (loss or gain)
changes in medication
or a general review.
