Our organisation was founded by two medical doctors who are passionate about educating and supporting people affected by type 2 diabetes.
We empower people to achieve better health so they can regain their confidence and enjoy life.
The founders are husband and wife team Dr Amanda and Dr Paul and they bring their expertise to the programme as Medical Doctors and Lifestyle Medicine Physicians.
They also bring their knowledge and first-hand experience of reversing prediabetes and type 2 diabetes through lifestyle from their time working in the UK and New Zealand.
We understand that prediabetes and type 2 diabetes are difficult to manage and that it impacts you differently from somebody else; because you are a unique person. We are also very aware that there is a lack of professional support and a lot of overwhelming, confusing and often conflicting information out there.
Making lifestyle behaviour changes that are sustainable is also much easier said than done, which is where our programme brings everything together; in a simple approach that makes long-term success more likely.
Our programme is independent, trustworthy, practical and provides supportive professional help in a more accessible and easier to understand way, so that you can take charge of your health and enjoy life.
To help you succeed we offer an:
• Online premium lifestyle platform
• Flexible and personalised programmes
• Interactive qualified nutritionist health coaching
• 1-to-1 or group support options
We want to help people build back the confidence that they might have lost since being diagnosed so they can make positive lifestyle changes, to get the best results and enjoy better health.
Husband and wife team Dr. Paul Baker and Dr. Amanda Porch have long focused on lifestyle as a form of medicine, particularly for insulin resistance, pre-diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes. Their passion for the treatment of Diabetes was further fuelled during their time living and working as Medical Doctors in New Zealand.
It was during this time in New Zealand that they became more acutely aware of the growing Australasian Health and Wellness movement. This led them to becoming fully qualified Lifestyle Medicine Physicians and Health and Wellness Coaches. Taking their expertise from New Zealand, Dr. Paul and Dr. Amanda founded Diabetes Lifestyle Doctors to help those affected by pre diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes access high quality help, no matter where they live.

I am a highly motivated, weight management and Senior Diabetes Registered Dietitian currently also undertaking a doctoral degree in digital family weight management interventions.
