MBBS, FRACGP, Dip Child Health
Specialist General Practitioner

Your low carb GP in the West

Olivia studied medicine at Monash University and has over 10 years experience in all areas of general practice.  As a Type 1 Diabetic herself for over 20 years, she has a special interest in the use of a low carbohydrate lifestyle to assist in the management of chronic diseases and metabolic health issues such as:

  • Diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2)
  • High blood pressure
  • Obesity
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia and inflammatory joint disease
  • Migraine
  • Reflux/indigestion
  • Fatty liver disease

She has recently spent time in the United Kingdom, working primarily in health screening and health prevention, researching the benefits of a low carbohydrate or ‘ketogenic’ diet in the management of a range of chronic health conditions.

Olivia has found that following a low carbohydrate lifestyle has drastically improved her diabetes management and has helped her to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. She is now passionate about working collaboratively with her patients, including adults and children with Type 1 Diabetes, to improve their health and wellbeing through low carbohydrate lifestyle changes.

Olivia is also the mother of twin boys and enjoys travelling, cycling and learning adult ballet – proving that it is never too late to fulfil your childhood dream of being a prima ballerina!
