My Diabetes Lifestyle Doctors
Get to Know Dr Amanda and Dr Paul
Dr Amanda & Dr Paul are medical doctors and are highly aware that more professional help needs to be made easily accessible to people at high risk of diabetes and those with a new diagnosis of type 2 diabetes.
Evidence shows that with the right guidance, support and empowerment, people can take back much greater control of their health and potentially carve themselves a much brighter future.
Together they are both extremely passionate and driven to make a positive difference to the lives of people at high risk of diabetes and people living with diabetes, especially having experienced their own family members suffering.
They also continue to treat countless people with the condition in their NHS work. It is clear to them both that more must urgently be done earlier on when the condition is more controllable through lifestyle.
Paul and Amanda have therefore created a specialised program to help support people onto the path that gives them the best opportunity to take back control of their own health. They are dedicated to maximising their clients’ potential for a better life – and one in which they themselves have the option to become the ‘experts’.
As Medical Doctors, Certified Lifestyle Medicine Physicians and Qualified Health & Wellness Coaches they do their best to get to the root causes of problems by taking a holistic and personalised approach.
Paul and Amanda fuse together their medical and wellness experience to create maximum impact in their lifestyle program. They have built upon the invaluable insights they have gained whilst working across the UK and New Zealand. They strive to support individual people and wider groups to be more empowered in their own health and life.
In essence they ultimately want to help people to feel and live better, with a focus on preventing the potentially devastating complications of diabetes through a fun, realistic, sustainable, supportive and optimised lifestyle approach.

Paul and Amanda are from the UK, they are a husband and wife team (just in case you were wondering!) and proud Mum and Dad to their son Alby. They have spent the last few years living and working as medical doctors in New Zealand. Whilst living in NZ they became super aware of the wellness movement in Australasia; and both took a keen interest personally and professionally – also becoming qualified health and wellness coaches; and certified Fitgenes and ph360 practitioners.
They are very aware of the limited professional support on offer to people with pre-diabetes and diabetes so in order to help out they founded Pro Healthology and created their own diabetic lifestyle program and named it ‘The Diabetic Lifestyle Doctors’. Their passion and interests are focussed around blood glucose management, insulin resistance, prediabetes and type 2 diabetes.
Paul and Amanda both manage their own weight issues with a low sugar, low carb diet. They enjoy the outdoors, cross-fit and scuba diving. Paul has a fascination for diving with sharks and aviation; and Amanda with nature and adventure travel. They both continue to work as NHS GPs and now live in Durham, England with their son Alby.
