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: •you suffer with digestive problems •you have been diagnosed with a medical condition, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, coeliac disease, HIV etc •you have oral, enteral or parenteral nutrition requirements •your child, or looked after child, has specialised nutritional requirements •you want or need to lose weight in a safe and sensible way •you need to put weight on following a spell of ill-health or as the result of a medical condition •you are considering surgery to lose weight •you want to improve your athletic performance or general fitness levels •you want advice about breastfeeding and weaning •you want to maximise your chances to become pregnant •you think you have an allergy or intolerance to a certain food •you would like advice about eating disorders •you are a carer and want credible and practical advice to ensure the person/s you are caring for is/are getting the appropriate nutrition in their diet/s.
