Profile

I specialise in providing individualised advice on diets for diabetes, weight reduction, and health. My aim is to cut through the confusion about diets to treat, control or ‘cure’ diabetes and weight loss, and help you to decide what will work for you. There is so much news about the right or wrong diet, and what has worked for individuals, that it can be hard to make a balanced view of what will work for you and your lifestyle, commitments and tastes.

I am an experienced HPCP registered dietitian, and have most recently worked as senior diabetes specialist dietitian in Coventry. I currently work as a Senior Teaching Fellow at Warwick Medical School where I am Course Director for the Certificate in Diabetes Care course and involved in the Masters degree programme. These courses are designed for health care professionals (GP’s, practice nurses, pharmacists and dietitians) who want to improve their knowledge of the treatment of diabetes.

People with diabetes, or those who have been told they are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes should have reliable, evidence based advice on their condition, and on which diet options are appropriate depending on their treatment. I am experienced at advising patients individually, I deliver group education and am an accredited educator for the DESMOND programme (type 2 diabetes).

Working beside a specialist team of diabetes consultants, diabetes specialist nurses and GP’s in the NHS and a Medical school setting has given me a sound understanding of the medical treatments for diabetes. There is convincing new evidence on the effect that diet and lifestyle can have on diabetes, and I have seen the difference people can make to their condition in practice. This has convinced me of the pivotal role of lifestyle change in the prevention of diabetes and in improving control after diagnosis.

Changing lifestyle and the way we eat is not easy, and suggestions always need to be tailored to your circumstances. To find out more about eating for health, changing diet to treat or prevent diabetes, or for weight loss, contact me for an appointment. My clinic is at Halo Physiotherapy in Kenilworth, Warwickshire.
