We see patients with type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes. We have special expertise in insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitoring.
We see patients for weight management and related conditions.
Obesity is defined as a body mass index (BMI) above 30. In Australia, 2 out of 3 adults, and 1 in 4 children are obese or overweight. Obesity is associated with multiple other health conditions including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, arthritis, and sleep apnoea.
We discuss strategies to help with weight loss and avoid the negative health consequences of obesity. The focus is on lifestyle changes, including reducing carbohydrates and sugars in the diet and increasing exercise. Medications may help with achieving these goals.
