Olga Lutzko is an Endorsed Nurse Practitioner with a passion for Chronic Disease Management, and a special interest in Diabetes. With 15 years experience through her business, Succeed In Diabetes, she has worked closely with hundreds of clients to effectively manage their insulin-dependent Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes, LADA (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults) and GDM (Gestational Diabetes).

Chronic Disease Management can be a frustrating experience for people (and their families). With a firm focus on improving quality of life while minimising harm, Olga offers assessments for the potential use of Medicinal Cannabis to effectively and naturally help to address issues of pain, anxiety, insomnia, poly-pharmacy concerns, and more. In this capacity, Olga is available to listen without judgement, assess your suitability and eligibility for medicinal cannabis, prescribe and manage your medicinal cannabis trial and ongoing treatment, and work with you to ensure the best possible outcomes.
