Dietitians are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems at an individual and wider public-health level. They work with both healthy and sick people. Uniquely, 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.
Reasons to see a dietitian
Here are just a few examples where dietitians, working on a one-to-one basis or part of a wider health team, can help improve your health and lifestyle if:
