Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure in Australia. We chat to Anne-Marie Desai, a clinical specialist dietitian in the area of kidney nutrition.

You’ll gain confidence in interpreting biochemistry and determining which of your diabetic clients would benefit from dietary modification to slow their progression to kidney failure.
The magic of mentoring

Constipation: a multidisciplinary approach to helping patients
One in four Australians (more than 6 million people) are affected by constipation (1).

For our latest podcast, we were lucky enough to sit down with Jaime to learn more about the fascinating world of intermittent fasting.
Vitamin D and immunity: The link

RD2be From the US
I’m studying to become a dietitian and in the US, I haven’t been able to find any podcasts like this! About experience, business, skill building, leadership, etc. All of the podcasts I can find here are on journal articles. So thank you for putting this content out! It’s so helpful!
