As well as assisting our clients to maintain optimal health, the Accredited Practising Dietitian service at Sports Medicine Institute is here to assist you in making any lifestyle changes necessary to manage chronic conditions in a way which suits your current situation and needs.

Clinical Dietetics and Nutrition

Our clinical specialists have a focus on weight loss, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease but all clinical dietetic conditions can be assessed and treated.

Sports Dietetics

Sports dietetics includes assessment of training and competition diets, pre-event meals, fluid replacement, dietary supplements, fat loss and lean mass gain. Detailed physique and anthropometric assessments are also included in the consultation. All patients are assessed and provided with detailed and individualised meal plans designed for their personal and special needs.
