Judy is well experienced with the management of Diabetes (Type I and II), Heart disease, Irritable bowel syndrome, Obesity and Eating Disorders.

Over recent years Judy has developed a particular interest in Sleep Apnoea and the contribution of diet and often weight loss to improve this condition. Diabetic patients have increased risk of Sleep Apnoea. While many patients with sleep disorders have excessive weight this is not always the case. Management of the condition, however greatly improves disease states such as Diabetes and Hypertension.

Judy is the mother of 4, and a keen cook, and believes that good food and social eating are very important components of an enjoyable life. Judy will provide easy to follow, life time dietary information that achieves weight loss in a gradual and sustainable way. It is all about balance.
