Have you recently been diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes? Are you having trouble controlling your blood sugars? Do you find your medication confusing? Do you have pre-diabetes?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then our credentialled diabetes educator can help.

 

​Our diabetes educator is highly experienced at helping people with diabetes to effectively manage their condition, whether they need medication or not. In addition to being a diabetic educator, she is also a pharmacist so she can share her extensive knowledge of diabetic medications and their use.

 

Diabetes that is not effectively managed can have devastating consequences. These include damage to the heart, brain and legs, eyes, kidneys, feet and nerves. The digestive system, the skin, sexual organs, teeth and gums, and the immune system can also be affected. If left untreated for long enough, poorly managed diabetes can lead to blindness and amputations.

Thankfully, managing Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes is extremely manageable in Australia thanks to our world class health system and ready access to a range of medicines and health devices (e.g., glucometers).

 

For anyone who has pre-diabetes, the onset of diabetes is not a foregone conclusion – an early intervention with the right lifestyle and dietary changes can help you to avoid diabetes and the need to manage a lifelong condition.

 

Come and see us if you have

  • Pre-diabetes

  • Type 1 diabetes (newly diagnosed or uncontrolled)

  • Type 2 diabetes (newly diagnosed or uncontrolled)

  • Any other questions on diabetes or its associated medicines or medical devices

In-person and telehealth appointments available.

We are located in Eastern Australia - please email us at enquiries@livebetternutrition.com.au if you would like to arrange an appointment outside of our standard operating hours
