We discuss a healthy diet and promote regular exercise. We regularly check weight and waist measurements and calculate the body mass index.
We refer to Dieticians if necessary and to Exercise Physiologists. There may be Medicare rebates for eligible patients, such as diabetic patients, for these services.
Diabetes is also increasing in our community and we advise on low fat foods with a low glycaemic index .
Reducing salt levels is beneficial in reducing blood pressure, as is weight loss.
