• Diabetes

• Osteoporosis / Osteopenia• Cardiovascular Disease
• High Cholesterol• High Blood Pressure
• Weight Management for Health
• Sports nutrition

2. Healthy Eating / Health Promotion

Through our lives, our nutritional needs change, and so do our health concerns. For example, the nutritional requirements of a small child, growing and developing rapidly, are very different to that of her father, who may be sitting at a computer at work all day or her grandmother, who may suffer from joint and bone pain. You need not have an illness to benefit form the expert advice of a dietitian at the Mid West Dietetic Clinic.

Each life stage will present different dietary challenges and varying health issues that may cause concern at that time. The Mid West Dietetic Clinic can ensure you are educated regarding the right dietary choices, what ever stage in life you are at.

The Mid West Dietetic Clinic provides a comprehensive dietetic service to patients including nutritional assessment, formulation of dietary advice, education for both patients and carers.We adopt a client centered approach and each person is treated on an individual basis.

Your Dietitian will carry out a full nutritional assessment using a Body Composition Analyser which uses the latest Bio-electric Impedance Analysis Technology to measure body weight, percentage body fat and body mass index. A dietary assessment is also carried out. This involves detailed discussion on personal food preferences and habits, frequency of consumption of food groups and assessment of personal nutritional requirements.

Based on these results and/or the presenting clinical condition, a care plan is formulated. The client is educated regarding his/her dietary treatment and an individually tailored dietetic plan is agreed. We will continue to see clients until such time as the dietetic treatment is deemed to be completed and successful.
