Dietetics and Nutrition


Dietitians are 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. Dietitians use the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease by educating and giving practical advice to clients, patients, and carers to enable them to make more appropriate lifestyle and food choices.
It is recommended that you see a dietitian if you have any of the following:

    • You suffer from digestive problems, including ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, constipation and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
    • You have been diagnosed with a medical condition, such as diabetes, insulin resistance, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, coeliac disease, etc.
    • Your child has any specialised nutritional requirements, such as failure to thrive, cerebral palsy, etc.
    • You want advice on breastfeeding and complementary feeding
    • You want to maximise your chances to become pregnant
    • You think you may have an allergy or intolerance to a certain food
    • You have oral, enteral or parenteral nutrition requirements
    • You are wanting or needing to lose weight in a safe and sensible way
    • You need to gain weight following a spell of ill-health or as a result of a medical condition
    • You are considering weight loss surgery
    • You want to improve your athletic performance, as well as general fitness levels
    • You struggle with ADD or ADHD
    • You have been diagnosed with Gout
    • You suffer from disordered eating such as bulimia, anorexia, BED
    • You want to find healthier alternatives
