Northcare is delighted to announce our new dietitian services, and welcomes Ellie Harabad to our Adelaide team.

Ellie is an Accredited Practising Dietitian who graduated from the University of South Australia with a postgraduate degree; Master of Dietetics.Ellie’s main areas of interest are healthy eating in different life span, nutrition in gastrointestinal issues such as Coeliac disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (FODMAP), diabetes management, weight management, cardiovascular diseases, allergy and food intolerances (elimination diet).

Ellie aims to provide support to help individuals achieve their health goals using her motivational interviewing skills.

Ellie works closely with our experienced exercise physiologists and physiotherapists to help with symptom management, and treat or control a range of diet related health issues such as arthritis, diabetes and obesity.

At your first appointment our dietitian will collect relevant information about your current health situation, any past medical history, your activity level and asks some general questions about your food habits. In your first session, there will also be questions about your diet and how you eat in a regular day. Collecting this information then allows our dietitian to provide personalised, accurate and effective suggestions that address your concerns.

At least one follow up session is highly recommended for better outcomes. This session is used to reinforce the provided education, as well as discussing the possible barriers to implement the suggestions provided in earlier sessions. Moreover, in most cases one session is too short to discuss all dietary aspects of presenting issue.

No referral is necessary. To book an appointment with Ellie please contact our Salisbury Plain, Golden Grove or Morphettville clinics.
