Registered Dietitian (B.Sc Hons, Dietetics. NWU)

I work with Adele van der Merwe, registered dietitian, in her private practice at DGMC. We advise on the best type of nutrition for patients during critical illness, which has been clinically proven to enhance recovery time and reduce complications. We also provide dietary counselling for patients after bowel surgery, ensuring they follow the correct diet from the start. I also provide dietary counselling on other conditions, such as Inflammatory bowel disease, IBS, weight loss and diabetes.


Clinical Focus

  • Nutrition Support In Critical Illness
  • Pre- And Post Operational Nutrition Support
  • Dietary Modifications After Bowel Surgery
