Tailormade Just For You

our dietary service

What is a dietitian?

Did you know that eating healthily boosts the immune system and can help combat depression and stress? A dietitian can offer practical guidance to help you make appropriate lifestyle and food choices. Dietitians base their advice on the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease.

What do Dietitians Do?

Dietitians translate the science of nutrition to help individuals with an array of conditions or situations they may find themselves with. Advice is individualised, taking an holistic approach to optimise outcomes, taking into account body measurements, blood test results and even what kitchen utensils you have! Plans are often developed with the individual concerned, to ensure it is felt to be achievable, although potentially challenging. Dietitians are great teamworkers, facilitating your journey alongside others such as physiotherapists, speech therapists and occupational therapists to name just a few.

Dietitians can help with a variety of areas including: allergy, diabetes, cholesterol, nutrition support, weight management and gastrointestinal difficulties.

Dietitian v Nutritionist

We are often asked what is the difference between a Dietitian and Nutritionist, the following information may serve to give you an insight into the differences and similarities.

Dietitians are the only legally regulated profession qualified in clinical nutrition and diet. Dietitians are trained to a minimum of degree level (3-4 year programmes) and keep up to date with the latest evidence. We work with healthy and sick people to assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems and take into account other health needs. Like Osteopaths and Physiotherapists, the dietitian title is protected by law and are required to registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC).

The main difference with a nutritionist is that they do not have to legally register their profession. There is however a voluntary register for those who have done certain degrees/courses and they can then use the title – registered nutritionist . As there is no legal requirement to register, anyone is able to title themselves a nutritionist and it is difficult to ensure that the nutritional information that they are providing is safe, appropriate and evidence based. There are however extremely knowledgeable and qualified nutritionists working in all sectors.

Registered Nutritionists can provide information about food and healthy eating but not about special diets for medical conditions. This is where dietitian specialities lie, in the greater knowledge/depth and ability to support those with other medical conditions too (within their scope of practice).
