The Low Carb Clinic is a doctor and dietitian team who are dedicated to improving your health in a way that nature intended. We treat patients by utilising the power of healthy food and lifestyle to transform your body into a healthy version of yourself. Our clinical team is united in the knowledge that for most people, eating fewer carbohydrates, and more healthy fats and proteins, is the key to unlocking your health.
Since learning how to incorporate these changes into your life takes time and practice, our approach consists of several visits over the course of months – or longer if you feel the need. We know that learning to be healthier is a journey, and we aim to support you at every stage of that journey.
Our vision is to transform our patients’ health through diet, medically monitor them during this process, and then refer them back to their usual treating medical team for ongoing care. Naturally, this is a highly individualised process, and will vary greatly depending on whether or not you have any pre-existing illnesses.
If you take medications, especially those for blood pressure, diabetes, or cholesterol, changing your diet may have an impact on your need for these medications. Our doctors are experts at fine tuning your medications while you adjust your diet. While we aim to have you on as few drugs as possible, some individuals will continue to need medications for their particular medical situation.
(WARNING: Medications are very dependent on the individual, and you should NOT change your medications without seeking appropriate medical advice).
1. A plan tailored to your needs
Everyone we see has a unique experience, and we believe there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach. We believe you always achieve the best results with a tailor made treatment plan, based on your lifestyle, work schedule, medical history, likes/dislikes, cultural and religious dietary requirements and preferences.
2. We work as one team
Our doctor and dietitian work directly together as your dedicated clinical team, so you will see a high level of coordination in our care for you. With your consent, we will also communicate with your regular GP and specialists to ensure the highest level of continuity in your ongoing care.
3. We’re here for you
We believe support is critical towards achieving your goals. Our dietitian will check in with you regularly and give you support to make sure you’re not left on your own and re-adjust your plan depending on your results and how you’re feeling. We will work with you to adjust your treatment plan accordingly –which may mean more or less sessions with us.
4. We are understanding and empathetic
So don’t be embarrassed to come in and see us, we’ve seen and heard it all before.
5. A focus on Type 2 Diabetes, Obesity and related conditions
Our doctor and dietitian team have wealth of expertise in using low-carbohydrate diets to address a range of health concerns. Your treatment may even address other secondary conditions such as reflux, headaches, acne and joint pain through your plan.
6. Up to date, evidence based knowledge in plain English
We de-mystify complex science in simple terms and provide you with the most up to date information in the field of low-carbohydrate dietetics and medical practice. Furthermore, we will provide you with clear, consistent, advice away from the online and social media jumble.
7. We won’t leave you hungry, moody or tired
Our goal is to give your body optimal nutrition to perform at your best and fuel your lifestyle.
8. It’s not just about food
We’ll address emotional factors and better identify the why as well as the what you are eating, and other lifestyle factors such as level of physical activity and alcohol consumption.
9. It’s not a diet, detox or a three month challenge
Rather a lifestyle shift to help you change your food choices and manage insulin resistance. We aim to equip you with the knowledge to make informed choices about your health for many years beyond your treatment with us.
If you are concerned about Type 2 Diabetes, Obesity or related conditions, please do not hesitate to come in and see us at The Low Carb Clinic for the highest level of care and support from your dedicated doctor and dietitian team.
