Hi, I'm Maxine, I'm a dietitian registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC). I have a BSc (Hons) degree in Dietetics from Coventry University, which means I'm qualified to give dietetic and nutritional advice.
I'm based in Wolverhampton, and have worked in the NHS as a Community Dietitian. I have experience of running weekly out-patient clinics, 'home enteral feeding', nursing home patient consultations, community hospital cover, as well as coeliac and gestational diabetes group education sessions.
It brings me great satisfaction to help people to achieve their health goals and improve their quality of life.
Aside from being a dietitian & nutritionist, I also enjoy growing my own vegetables, keeping active, and spending time with my little boy.
Low FODMAP diets for Irritable Bowel Syndrome or IBS
One of the conditions I really enjoy helping patients with is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). I am an accredited low FODMAP diet practitioner, this diet is 70% effective as treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome IBS. I find it satisfying being able to help so many people with this condition. I see IBS sufferers in my Wolverhampton clinic from the local area, the rest of the West Midlands and surrounding counties such as Shropshire and Staffordshire. I also offer Skype consultations for national and international patients.
