How we can help

Weight management
Low or no carb diets were once  the answer to achieve weight loss often leaving you starving and not providing a realistic long term solution. There are numerous restrictive and even FAD diets  out there and if you’ve tried them, they often leave you feeling deprived and hungry for more. Here at Designer Diets™ we want to help you regain your health naturally, with a lifelong dietary pattern that is sustainable and addresses your medical needs accordingly. 

Whether it be from inadequate dietary intake or caused by an underlying medical condition, requires medical nutrition therapy to continue to  fuel the body and bodily processes. Discover what is in our dietitians toolbox to support you if you are malnourished.

Insulin resistance
When the body is in a state of chronic inflammation, this inhibits the signalling pathway of insulin, causing insulin resistance. As a result, the insulin is not as effective at moving sugar out of the bloodstream to the body’s cells. The pancreas responds by producing greater amounts of insulin and can eventually wear itself out, leading to type 2 diabetes. Ask us what is the best dietary approach to help and manage this health condition and war on your body organs.

If you’re sick of taking pills to lower your blood pressure but don’t seem to be getting the results you or your doctor are after, you may need to consider some dietary changes to help.

Likewise, if you are taking pills to lower cholesterol with no great effect, then education on the types of dietary fats and dietary approach that are important for a healthy heart is necessary to get the outcomes you desire.

Thyroid disease

Gout is caused by an accumulation of uric acid in the body. Did you know it can also highlight an underlying metabolic dysfunction such as insulin resistance?
