Metabolic Health Program Our Metabolic Health Program provides a safe and supportive environment for you to manage your health, with a team of diet and exercise professionals supporting you along the way.

Overweight and obesity are becoming increasingly common in our community and are conditions that can lead to many other metabolic health issues.

Research has shown that a team-based, collaborative approach to your care can vastly improve outcomes when it comes to the treatment of metabolic conditions.

Participants will engage in initial consultations with an Exercise Physiologist, Nutritionist/Dietitian, Mental Health Practitioner and Endocrinologist to help determine the most effective treatment pathway. Patient-centred care is a key component of all Brellah programs, and we will ensure you are always included in your treatment options.

Do I need a referral to attend the Metabolic Health Program?

You do not need a referral, however you may be eligible for a Medicare rebate for some of your 1-on-1 or group sessions. Check with your usual GP or arrange to see a Brellah GP to find out if you are eligible for a team care arrangement. Patients with Type 2 Diabetes are eligible for further rebates for group allied health assessments – including your exercise physiologist initial screening and group exercise classes.

Can I use private health to claim for these classes?

Many private health insurers cover our initial screening assessments and classes through their extras cover. Please check your level of cover with your insurance provider.

In most situations, your treatment team will include your Endocrinologist, as well as an Exercise Physiologist, Dietitian or Nutritionist and a Mental Health Professional.

This will vary between individuals and will be discussed in more detail with you during the initial consultations. However to gain the most out of your program, we recommend:

  • Four months for those wanting to kickstart their weight loss journey, with resources and early steps toward success
  • Twelve months for those wanting an extra boost of expertise and a long-term wraparound team to help keep you accountable

We can work alongside your GP specialist or endocrinologist to determine the most suitable plan for you.
