Dietitians use the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease which they translate into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices. Different to Nutritionists, they are the only nutrition professionals to be regulated by law and are governed by an ethical code to ensure they work at the highest standard. A registered dietitian has completed a 1-2 year postgraduate training course specially designed to provide a supervised programme of clinical practice within a range of healthcare services.
A registered dietitian will give you personalised nutrition advice specific to your particular concern. After learning about your health history, favourite foods, eating and exercise habits, a registered dietitian will help you set goals and make changes. Follow-up visits will be made to monitor your progress.
