What to expect

Your initial consultation will be arranged at a mutually convenient time and venue. We allow 30-45 minutes for this consultation, which in our experience is plenty of time to cover all the relevant issues. We advise that you keep a chronological record of all the foods and drinks that you take for 2-3 days prior to your appointment and to bring this with you to your consultation.

Your consultation could include:
  • Weight and height measurements (it is advisable to wear light clothing or layers of clothing and easy to remove footwear)

  • Your medical history
  • Current symptoms
  • Eating behaviours
  • Dietary intake and tailored dietary advice
  • Your questions
  • Follow-up options

We do not perform any investigative procedures such as allergy or blood tests.

See below for what to expect during the consultation.

During the consultation

  • We do not perform any investigative procedures such as allergy or blood tests

  • Your medical conditions, symptoms and psychological issues will be discussed and how these are affecting your diet
