Nutrition is important for all of us, but for some people nutrition can be vital to the management of certain conditions. At MetroRehab Hospital, our dieticians assess your health, your condition and how nutrition can help empower you.
What is Dietetics?
Your diet, nutritional intake and liquid intake can all be affected by your condition in several ways. If you have difficulty swallowing food or fluids safely, it may be difficult to maintain adequate nutritional intake and hydration. This can lead to weight loss, fatigue, dehydration and muscle wasting. Our dieticians can help you improve your digestion, food and fluid intake and aid your development with the right nutritional plan to suit you.

We also cater for NDIS and iCare participants as well as full-fee-paying patients who may not have private health insurance. For more information please call: 02 8585 4900.
