Diabetes Education


Whether you are newly-diagnosed or have had diabetes for a while and need an update, I will work closely with you and your endocrinologist and/or GP to help you in managing your diabetes. In addition to my  professional experience, I have personally lived with type 1 diabetes since the age of 10, providing me with a real understanding of the issues faced in the day to day management of diabetes. If you have type 1 diabetes or gestational diabetes, I can help you with the following:

  • Diabetes management education when you are newly-diagnosed
  • Dietary management of diabetes
  • Exercise and other lifestyle factors
  • Self blood glucose monitoring
  • Insulin administration
  • Insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM)


A healthy lifestyle is an essential part of managing PCOS and is recommended as the first step in treatment.  I have extensive experience and understanding of the dietary and lifestyle management of PCOS. This was the topic of my PhD research, I am author of The Low GI Diet for PCOS, a guest lecturer on PCOS at the University of Sydney and a member of the lifestyle Guideline Development Group for the PCOS International Evidence-Based Guidelines.  If you have PCOS, I can help you with:

  • Understanding the important role lifestyle changes play in the management of PCOS.
  • Understanding insulin resistance and its role in PCOS.
  • Dietary education and advice for PCOS.
  • Understanding the role of exercise and other lifestyle factors
