Samantha Oxenham

Consults:  Saturdays

Sam is an accredited practicing dietitian with a graduate certificate in diabetes education.  She can help you with all aspects of nutrition, weight loss and chronic disease management. She has a special interest in Type 1, Type 2, gestational and pre-diabetes. Her passion and expertise in diabetes management and nutrition originates from having lived with type 1 diabetes herself for over 30 years.

Sam has previously been trained in Dose Adjustment for Normal Eating (DAFNE) principles and is an expert in carbohydrate counting for insulin pumps or MDI. Whether you’re newly diagnosed, need an update or have an interest in learning how to better manage your health conditions through food and nutrition, Sam can help.

Outside of work, you’ll find Sam at home with her husband and two young children. She loves keeping fit through crossfit and cycling; and her guilty pleasures are a glass of wine and dark chocolate
