In a world full of self-proclaimed experts, my simple message is that a registered dietitian is the best person to provide diet and nutrition advice that incorporates both your medical and lifestyle requirements.
A Registered Dietitian is
- The expert in nutrition and diet, able to evaluate and translate the latest research and trends to assess the importance to you, the patient.
- A degree-qualified health professional who holds a graduate qualification in nutrition and dietetics.
- The only nutrition professional to be regulated by law and governed by an ethical code giving them the legally protected title of ‘dietitian’.
- A nutrition professional registered with the Health and Care Professions Council, the statutory body which regulates health professionals.
