Olga has thirteen years’ experience in helping clients with insulin dependent diabetes, both Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) and Type 2 Diabetes, LADA (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults) and GDM (Gestational Diabetes).

 

Olga completed her Masters in Nursing at Deakin University in 2017. As a Nurse Practitioner specialising in diabetes, she is able to counsel, manage medication with the benefit of writing scripts when needed and order pathology tests, all of which allows the appropriate direction for success for each individual. She does this through listening with no judgement.

 

Olga can help identify the best diabetes technology for you. This may be a six- day CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitoring) report, real time CGM which you can see on your smart phone, technology that can decreases the use of MDI (multiple daily injections) or even insulin pump therapy. All the latest information and  technology to help you succeed in better daily management of insulin dependent diabetes is available.

Olga runs Succeed in Diabetes and will be working out of our Highton Clinic in Roslyn Road. To find out more, go to www.succedindiabetes.com.au
