Dietitian and Nutritional Advice Bentleigh East

Diet and Nutrition Services at Mackie Road Clinic

Accredited Practising Dietitians are qualified health professionals able to provide expert nutrition and dietary advice. They are trained to assess nutritional needs and assist people in managing health conditions using food as a medical nutrition therapy. Dietitians are able to translate everyday scientific nutrition information into practical advice. Whether it involves treating conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, gastrointestinal disease, food allergies, food intolerances, disordered eating or overweight and obesity, a dietitian can provide you with the best nutrition advice for your personal needs.

Mary Lucas is an Accredited Practicing Dietitian with a Bachelor in Nutrition and Dietetics with distinction. She has been in private practice for a number of years and provides expert nutritional advice on a wide range of chronic conditions such as diabetes, IGT, coronary heart disease, obesity, hyperlipidaemia/dyslipidaemia, coeliac disease, IBS and gastrointestinal disorders. Mary has a particular interest in weight management and bowel/IBS management. If you are struggling to achieve and maintain a healthy weight or suffer from on-going bowel problems, a consultation with Mary is highly recommended.

Our Dietitian works closely with your GP and allied health team to optimise your care and wellbeing.

Mary is also able to provide home visits to housebound patients and DVA card holders provided a GP referral is available.
