What is a dietitian?
Dietitians are accredited healthcare professionals who are licensed to assess, diagnose, and treat nutrition-related problems. Dietitians have qualifications in nutrition and dietetics. They provide dietary counselling, evidence-based nutrition therapies, and are able to translate scientific information into practical advice.
Our dietitian will work with you to help guide you towards your personal goals, or assist you in managing a medical condition. The development of a tailored plan is merely the beginning, and the implementation of it requires a partnership of ongoing education and support.
What can you expect during the consultation?
At your initial appointment, our dietitian will take into consideration your body measurements and composition, activity levels, medical test results, medications, clinical symptoms, and diet before making an overall assessment of your nutritional needs.
Prior to your consultation, you may be asked to complete specific forms such as a diet history or a symptom assessment questionnaire. This will offer insight into what you are experiencing, and make the consultation more time-efficient. If you have any relevant test results or referral from your GP, please bring this with you.
