Experts you can trust
Ketogenic Life is a medical clinic with staff who understand, practice and promote the benefits of a low carbohydrate (LCHF) and ketogenic diet.
We are a part of a medical practice established by Dr Ian Johnson and Cathy Williams over 20 years ago. We have a wholistic, individual approach to the care we provide and pride ourselves on establishing long term relationships with our patients.
Take charge and change things
Rather than feeling powerless you can take charge and change things with our guidance and support. We understand that you will have tried to improve your diet and health many times before.
Being a medical practice our approach to a Low Carb or Ketogenic Lifestyle is unique. We focus on the individual and their health not just weight loss. We ALWAYS start our services with a medical consultation so that we can tailor our recommendations to your specific metabolic health requirements.
We perform a comprehensive set of blood tests, ECAL calorimetry and order a DXA body composition. These tests guide our advice and serve to provide a very important baseline to measure your success objectively and help to keep you motivated.
It is very important to know WHY you might start a Low Carb or Ketogenic way of life. In this way we hope that you will make these changes for the long term, and not just see it as a quick fix. Please contact us today to make your appointment with Dr Johnson!

What is Metabolic Screening?
We order metabolic blood markers, tests that provide information about the current status of your metabolism, including the health of your kidneys and liver, electrolyte and acid/base balance as well as levels of blood lipids (cholesterol etc), glucose, insulin and blood proteins as well as inflammatory markers.
You will be given a request for optional (but recommended) total body composition scan. This gives a baseline measurement of body fat and it’s distribution, muscle and bone measurements. This is an inexpensive low dose radiation investigation that is available from most radiology clinics and can be repeated from time to time to objectively monitor progress.
