Dr Caroline Thew

Dr Thew is the endocrinologist at the Women's Mental Health Clinic (WMHC) with over 20 years experience working as a clinical endocrinologist, in private practice, and attached to Royal Melbourne Hospital.

Her PhD research topic was Studies of Insulin Resistance in Human Adiopocytes and she maintains a particular interest in Type II diabetes and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.

She has developed a weight loss and exercise program with the motivational psychologist at the WMHC, Cindy Yu. This is particularly helpful for patients who may have experienced weight gain as a side effect of their psychiatric medication.
