Clinical

Personalised therapeutic diets

I have worked as a clinical dietitian providing Medical Nutrition Therapy since 1994 in public hospitals, community centres, fitness centres and general practice.

How does it work?

In the first appointment, you will be asked about your general health, and I will assess your vital statistics (e.g., height, weight, waist circumference, fat and muscle mass, fat mass index), biochemistry (e.g., blood glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides, etc…) and your eating and drinking habits, to form an overall picture of your nutritional status.

Based on this, we will then work out what area of your diet needs improvement, and what changes can be made based on your own personal goals, food preferences, family situation, finances and cultural background.

A structured menu plan may be provided, tailor-made to your own unique requirements.

Shopping lists, information sheets and other written materials (e.g., booklets) may also be provided, depending on your own personal needs. This process typically takes one hour (the initial appointment).

Follow-up appointments cover how well you are feeling and how you are managing with your dietary changes, assessment of your vital statistics and biochemistry, and general progress towards your goals, trouble‑shooting and further refinement of your personalised eating plan.
