The idea of a GP led weight management clinic providing patients with unbiased, evidence-based information about their options, evolved from Zanna and Teresa's time working together at Australian Metabolic and Obesity Surgery (AMOS) in 2015.
Their aim was to educate patients on the chronic nature of obesity, and then to empower them to take control with a program individually tailored to suit them.
In 2017, Teresa was diagnosed with breast cancer, but was empowered by people around her to stay positive, fit and healthy through her extensive treatment. Through this she realised that people with weight issues require the same support. Teresa has finished all of her treatment, is fit and healthy and has been in remission for over five years.
Zanna is no stranger to medical issues either, having been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome whilst undergoing investigations for infertility. She knows firsthand how important health and lifestyle modification are to positive health outcomes. Following IVF treatment, Zanna now has three beautiful daughters.
In 2018, Zanna and Teresa's dream was realised with the opening of Re:You Health.
As directors of Re:You they bring a wealth of knowledge to the practice, and also empathy and understanding.
Re:You work with a number of bariatric clinics, but primarily with the teams at AMOS and Obesity and Weight Loss Surgery Adelaide , together with Adelaide Exercise Physiology and 3D Dietetics. Patients can also receive support from many psychologists including Melanie Weeks, Nicolle Cummins and Jennifer Kemp.
