Olga Lutzko

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, as a Nurse Practitioner specialising in diabetes, is able to counsel, manage medication with the benefit of writing scripts when needed, and ordering of pathology tests, all of which allows the appropriate direction for success for each individual. She does this through listening with no judgement.

Whatever you are concerned about, be this hypos (Hypoglyceamia) or running high (Hyperglyceamia) and DKA, or generally concerned about your HbA1c we can help. We will ensure educational sessions, be they hints and tips on lifestyle modification and healthy eating or the benefits of using Technology in Diabetes – all with the focus of helping you succeed.

Olga can help identify the best Diabetes Technology for you. This may be a 6 day CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitoring) report, realtime CGM which you can see on your iPhone, technology that can decreases the use of MDI (multiple daily injections) or even insulin pump therapy. The information and the technology are all available to help you succeed in better daily management of insulin dependent Diabetes – whatever type you have.
