HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

High blood pressure, or hypertension, occurs when blood vessels become less flexible, which causes a build-up of pressure. The heart has to work hard to pump blood around the body against this extra pressure. Many people with high blood pressure have no symptoms so it is important to have blood pressure checked regularly. 

 

Having high blood pressure increases the risk of developing heart disease and strokeFollowing a healthy eating plan can have a positive effect on lowering high blood pressure. It is important to see your doctor to have your blood pressure monitored before you make these important lifestyle changes.

Our Dietitians can help you to identify and make dietary and lifestyle changes to reduce your blood pressure.

DIABETES & INSULIN RESISTANCE

Diabetes mellitus, commonly known as diabetes, is a condition in which the body can’t maintain healthy levels of glucose (sugar) in the bloodstream. The hormone insulin moves sugar from the blood into your cells to be stored or used for energy. With diabetes, your body either doesn't make enough insulin or can't effectively use the insulin it does make. People with diabetes should aim to achieve blood glucose levels as near as possible to the normal range in order to avoid short and long term diabetes complications.

Good diabetes management can help reduce the risk of complications such as:

  • Heart and kidney disease

  • Stroke

  • Foot and eye problems

  • Circulation problems.

Individual blood glucose targets should be discussed with your diabetes health team. Our Dietitians will considered your personal health, lifestyle, and activity level to provide you with an individual and tailored dietary plan to manage your diabetes and stay healthy.
