What we do
Russell has also completed a Graduate Certificate in Diabetes Education and Health Care through Mayfield Education.
Completing this additional qualification has enabled Russell to further educate himself in the field of Diabetes and further understand the personal and psychological aspects involved in diabetes management.
Russell is proficient in teaching carbohydrate counting and can assist those with T1DM with appropriately managing their insulin doses and/or assist those with T2DM/GDM in achieving adequate BGL control through appropriate carbohydrate spread throughout the day.
IBS and food intolerance
IBS is common, affecting one in five Australians at some point in time. IBS belongs to the so-called functional gastrointestinal disorders and can be quite uncomfortable with patients suffering from symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhoea or constipation. Some people can experience multiple symptoms which can vary in frequency and severity and can greatly impact their quality of life.
There are many different ways to achieve long term weight maintenance/loss and this is largely a trial and error process to attain the best fit for an individual.
Russell tends to base his strategies on aspects of a lower carbohydrate approach in conjunction with routine based, portion controlled and lower calorie meals.
Russell is currently NDIS registered and accredited to assist NDIS and plan managed participants. The majority of his disability based work involves those with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) and as a result, has developed an in-depth understanding of this condition and how to assist from a diet/nutritional standpoint.
